Cheat eats in London

Suggestions for cheap eats in London? I'll be near Borough Station and other central areas... are there grocery stores near that area that I can buy food at and just cook it myself?

Thanks!

Also, you can use the "store locator" or "store finder" on websites for Tesco, Sainsbury, Waitrose and Marks & Spencer.

Also you've got Borough Market up the road.

Not the cheapest market but it is good to go see - Fridays and Saturdays I think?

On the Saturday morning, you must go to Borough Market.

There's a small Sainsbury's supermarket near Borough station.

Not too far away (15 minutes walk), I would recommend Cafe Pronto on Blackfriars Road. They are very popular for sandwiches etc at lunchtime, and plus once I saw Cherie Blair (prime minister's wife) there, so you might have a celebrity spot too:

You must be able to blag a free lunch then if Cherie goes there.
