Where to Eat with Kids at Old Spitalfields Market
The best East London eats for small people with big appetites.
Whether your children are street food adventurers, or fall into the ‘less daring diner’ category, a kids’ got to eat. Here’s our guide to the best places in the Market to refuel en famille.
The Real Greek
6 Horner Square, Mon – Sat 12 – 10.30pm, Sun 12 – 9pm
(High Chairs, Baby Changing Facilities)
Bookings 020 7375 1364
For those wanting the kids to try something new, but with a the-struggle-is-real need to sit down, The Real Greek is a great option. This East London institution serves up kids Souvlaki Wraps and Mezze, with the option of chips on the side if they are needed to sweeten the deal. Parents can be transported to sunnier climes with a large Mediterranean menu featuring Greek classics galore.

Our street food options offer you the chance to grab some great dishes to share, before cosying up at our covered communal dining tables…
Tre Rote – Pasta
On the Market floor (by steps to Wagamama), 12 – 5pm
Not only do Tre Rote serve up delicious authentic Italian pasta dishes, the theatre of watching them cook it before your eyes is enough to captivate a grown adult, let alone a small child. Portions are generous, so take along an extra container if you are splitting a portion (or two) with the kids.
Sud Italia – Pizza
Blue van on the Market floor, Lamb Street entrance, 11.30 – 10pm
Sud Italia’s world-famous Neopolitan pizzas have been called the best in London. Head to their busy blue van in the corner of the Market for classic pizzas (including enduring kiddie fave the Margarita) and seasonal specials. Just make sure you order your own too… these pizzas are so good the kids won’t be leaving you any.
Hungry kids (and adults) will love the sandwich selection at Crunch.
Their signature fried Michael’s Chicken sandwich leaves fast food giants in the shade, while the Umami Shroomwich is veggie heaven.
You’re never too young to appreciate a good burger.
From their legendary Cheeseburgers to the veggie Simplicity burger, Bleecker have got something remarkable in a bun for everyone.
The selection of fries alone will have them sold – whatever their ages (but maybe save the Angry Fries for dedicated spice lovers only).
It’s a commonly known fact that there are few child hanger issues that can’t be fixed by an iced doughnut covered in sprinkles.
Make a run for Donovan’s for just this and so many more baked treats.
