Have breakfast at Pellicci's

A classic cafe in every sense, E. Pellici's is a celebrated cafe at 332 Bethnal Green Road, E2, which has since 2005 been Grade II listed by English Heritage.

The cafe combines a greasy spoon with classic Italian cafe, with pastries and an Italian menu on offer, all served in a space created by carpenter Achille Capocciin in 1946.

The history of the cafe dates back further than that, however, and it has been run by the Pellicci since 1900, and with the late Nevio Pellicci passing away in 2005, it is now in the hands of Maria Pellicci.

Past visitors have included Dizzee Rascal, David Schwimmer, Su Pollard and anyone who has ever been on Eastenders, as well as, obviously, the Krays.

  1. Who needs Breakfast at Tiffany's when you can have Pellicci's?

  2. Undoubtedly the best cafe in London. Highly recommend the chicken rusticana.


  3. This featured heavily in the recent TV series on ITV set in the present day about the Kray-imposters. I've walked past this place so many times it's untrue - I must actually go inside one of these days...
