Description: The Legenddeli Restaurant is a tiny backstreet bistro/cafe with a huge passion for food, having featured in the newspapers, radio and on TV, catered for Jamie oliver, jimmy, star guests and the crew on the set of the Friday night feast show. Legend deli has a huge emphasis on making everything from scratch with pure ingredients and zero preservatives or additives. The Legenddeli restaurant serves brunch and lunch everyday and a secret dinner menu on Friday and Saturday nights (booking is highly recommended) Chef jay and his partner jojo provide an attentive service and perfectly prepared restaurant dishes and desserts every single day and also offer a very, very popular brunch/lunch menu that is different to anything in south Essex. Basically if you fancy something different...try legenddeli. Give us a call for evening reservations or large private party bookings for any night of the week or visit our Facebook page at legend deli south end on sea for more of an insight. P.S WE ARE A B.Y.O RESTAURANT....PLEASE FEEL FREE TO BRING YOUR OWN WINE OR BEER.

Wow!! Had a fantastic Saturday night here with delicious food and perfect friendly service. This chef knows how to put flavours together, the food is perfectly balanced, inventive and just plain yummy! I have been thinking about the scotch egg all week....!

Little diner/restaurant in Southend that has an interesting selection of sandwiches some of which include their homemade salt beef.
The sandwiches are all big and messy the chips with cheesy gravy are worth a try only let down is the selection of drinks, no problem with them not having a license but cans or juice could be added to with shakes or smoothies.
Definitely worth a try for lunch, not cheap but you get what you pay for!
The very helpful waitress informed us the menu is just changing so we'll pop back just to see what they've got.

Visited Legend Deli many times and have never had a single complaint. The food quality is excellent and so are the staff. Very friendly and welcoming for all guests. If you have not been yet then you are missing out.

This is in my eyes one the top spots for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner in southend.

Salt beef hash is amazing and hands down my favourite on the menu.

Treat your self, loved ones and friends to a table and see for yourselves.

A fabulous find (thanks to reviews on TripAdvisor!) and a fabulous lunch.
The baked eggs in cheese sauce with bacon and mushrooms was to die for, a spoon was needed to ensure no sauce escaped (there was plenty of bread to dip too) the eggs were fabulously runny, just an amazing dish.
We also had the Chickwich with Oink, a mouthful to order and a delicious mouthful to savour, very generous portion (of BBQ pulled chicken with bacon and cheese) with a delightful side of salad with couscous.
