A treasure trove of beans and bangers, Rossi’s serves traditional English food in a space reminiscent of a grungy New York diner. The combination is refreshing when it feels like the only place to go for a full English is yet another kind of overpriced pub. The humble interior offers a respite from the trendy art spots around Brick Lane. Locals fill the seats with the occasional foreigner wandering in to get a look at the cheap fare. Frugal eaters may want to check out the breakfast specials which include eggs, runny beans, bacon rashers, and sausages in generous portions. Those in a hurry can snatch a custom built sandwich at the counter. Rossi’s won’t thrill anyone with its atmosphere, but for those looking for an inexpensive, satisfying meal, it’s a smashing option.

Rossi’s is right in between the galleries if you walk down Brick Lane en route between the two. Hanbury St., E1 (Right across the street from Spitalfields Market)
