Life In London
9 of the best student eats in London
Everyone loves eating out, right?
Whether it's a hungover brunch or superfood dinner, it's nice to treat yourself to a restaurant-cooked meal sometimes.
However, this can be a little tricky on a student budget. Lucky for you, London has a culturally diverse selection of student-friendly food. From Mexican to Korean and everything in between, you will definitely something perfect for you...
Brick House: Enjoy fresh bakery produce, cornbread muffins and a wide range of egg dishes here. Avocado toast is only £4 and fried eggs with your choice of trimmings only comes to £8.
Brother Marcus: If you fancy a Brooklyn style cafe, check out Brother Marcus. Most plates are around £8-9. You can get super salads with halloumi or even salmon if you are living on a larger student budget.
