One of the places my cousin wanted to go to while we were in London was Greggs. So after getting a bit turned around after leaving Westminster Abbey we searched for the nearest Greggs and went for a bit of a hike. The way my cousin explained Greggs was that it was cheap food, essentially a meal put into a pastry so it was portable.


What started as a single bakery in 1951 Greggs has expanded to over 1, 600 shops that serve breakfast, sandwiches, pasta, soups, salads, sweets, pasties, bakes and of course bread. I ended up ordering a sausage bean and cheese melt which I enjoyed as we wandered through the street fair that was going on outside. It wasn’t a huge meal but it was cheap and it was nice to be able to walk around with it, especially since there wasn’t seating inside the Greggs.
