For restaurant quality pizza at 6am, go to Il Siciliano for its wonderful range of speciality calzones and strombolis. A calzone is folded pizza with the toppings on the inside, while a stromboli is essentially a rolled up pizza with concentric layers of melted cheese and toppings. For true indulgence, try the four cheese calzone, straight from the oven. If calzone is not your thing, they sell a range of pizza slices as well as arancini rice balls.

2. Greek and Shop

Bar, Coffee Shop, Cafe, Greek, Spanish

Need a kebab fix but don’t fancy all those trans fats? You should pay a visit to Greek and Shop for one of their healthy pittas. Choose between chicken, beef, falafel and pork gyros as your filling. Each pitta is stuffed with salad, tzatziki, and hummus with crumbled feta cheese. It is a charming space with a pleasant seating area to eat your pitta or to enjoy a coffee. The shelves are stocked full of Greek produce including dips, Greek yogurt, olives, Greek beer and some pre-prepared dishes like moussaka. Greek pastries are on sale along with freshly prepared sandwiches.
