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.

Previous five star reviews are correct. Friendly staff, great food, reasonably priced. What more could you ask for?

Went in for lunch at Legends Deli, mainly because of the number of good reviews on Tripadvisor. Good points: the food was lovely - fresh, tasty, plenty of it, and just a little bit different. Bad points: the restaurant is really more of a cafe, it’s down a scruffy, weed filled smelly alleyway, if you come in through the alleyway from the High Street, you have to weave your way past smelly rubbish skips and litter. As in a transport cafe, milk and sugar is added in the kitchen to your tea/coffee. The place is actually pretty grimy - tabletops marked and sticky etc. There is a single (tiny) toilet downstairs in the basement - have got to say it was GROSS, dirty, smelly, ingrained dirt and grime, basically falling apart. Made me worry that if they think this is acceptable to customers, what is the kitchen area like? The whole place really needs a deep clean and refresh. Staff were lovely, but sorry, won’t be returning.

So glad we found this place! Finding really good vegan food when out and about is sometimes a bit hit-and-miss, but Legends is one of the best I've found so far. A good selection of vegan food, imaginative, freshly prepared, and plenty of it too. There was so much on my plate I couldn't finish it; I was even offered a doggy-bag to take the rest with me, and if we hadn't been going to a show I would have!! It's only a couple of minutes walk from the main town, and is well worth seeking out. Top marks!!
NB: at the time I visited, they were only open 11am to 4pm so not an evening place.
