London recs?

We'll be in London from Oct 10-16 and are looking for some recs.

First, is anyone familiar with a stand in Camden Market that makes a potato/bacon/sausage dish? A friend (who was there two years ago) told me about these French guys. From his photos it looks like it's called "Le Grande Beuffe". They're under a red and white striped tent. He claimed this dish was so delicious that he went back for more on his last day.

Some good cheap eats ($10-$15) mainly for breakfasts and lunches. Is anyone familiar with S&M Café or West Cornwall Pasty Co.? Both were recs from a friend. Probably touristy but is the food good? Also maybe some cafes/bakeries to grab a quick bite.

Traditional English breakfast? Doesn't need to be upscale in the least just good.

Canteen? Worth it or don't bother?

A place for High Tea. Is Browns really worth it? It looks wonderful in the photos I've seen. What about the Orangery? I had tea at the Savoy back in '89 and would like to share the experience with my BF as this is our first London trip together. I know it's a touristy thing to do but I think it will be fun.

Great fish and chips! After doing a little research on this board I've come up with The Golden Hind, Master's Superfish, The Sea Shell...Anyplace else I should think about? We'll probably have them more than once.

Planning on checking out Borough Market and still undecided on The River Café. We're armed with our Time Out Cheap Eats guide as well as that Time Out Lunch issue from a few weeks back and will probably search Gutter Eats for additional places.
