Marie’s is, quite simply, a Waterloo institution. But how best to describe it?

Is it a traditional English café with a Thai food sideline, or is it a Thai restaurant with a penchant for sausage sandwiches and fried eggs with brown sauce?

Whatever it is, we love it for its perfect hangover fry ups (probably among the cheapest in London), its sweet basil chilli chicken and for Sue – an ever-smiling host with an almost photographic memory for how her guests like their toast.

Other reasons to visit Marie’s include its money-saving bring-your-own-booze policy in the evenings, its bargain take away Spaghetti Bolognese (£3.10 – a steal!) and to catch up on the latest Lower Marsh gossip.

Our little known fact about Marie’s Café:
A wooden statue of religious icon Sri Gouged sits above the list of sandwiches. The icon is good luck for businesses and waves to customers with one hand while collecting the money with the other.
