If you want a cheap, delicious brekky you can't go past the market. Beautiful crepes, burgers, coconut juice, pastries and more. Pick up fruit and veg for lunch etc while you're there.

This is a very cool market, where you can shop for bits and pieces, some cool crafts, buy your fresh veggies and have an excellent coffee and pastry. A must is the spinache and cheese samosa's from Govindas.
