“MARIA, A TRUE BOROUGH MARKET LEGEND, HAS FINALLY RETIRED, BUT HER LEGACY LIVES ON”
Maria’s Market Cafe is a Borough Market institution, named after its founder Maria Moruzzi, whose parents opened Borough Cafe on Park Street in 1961. After many decades of frying bacon, brewing tea and serving everyone from market porters to Hollywood film stars, Maria has finally retired, but her legacy lives on. Now under new ownership, the cafe, which is located in the heart of Three Crown Square, continues to be the place to go for its famous bubble and squeak, hearty breakfasts, lunchtime sandwiches and hot drinks.
