Millennial hot spot Clapham is a hub of bars, restaurants and brunching, the go-to residential destination for recent grads and young families alike. The perfect suburb to while away a weekend, there’s few things quite as pleasant as eating brunch al fresco in a charming cafe bordering the common.
Looking for inspiration? Check out my top spots below:
33 Abbeville Road
Tucked away on the picture perfect high street of Abbeville Village, 33 Abbeville Road is a local favourite at any time of day. With a solid weekend brunch menu including a strong selection of breakfast cocktails, 33 also boasts a pretty terrace that makes a perfect morning sun trap.
Try Le French Toast with Cinnamon and Maple.
No 32 The Old Town
A morning at No. 32 is guaranteed to be a lively affair, a buzzing social hub for girly brunches, weekend catch ups and birthday celebrations. A top spot at the edge of Clapham Common and a large first floor terrace makes this one of the most scenic brunch spots in the area. With an extensive daily breakfast menu as well as an all day weekend brunch offering, No. 32 has something for every taste, from wholesome options to an indulgent treat.
Try Caramelised Banana and Ricotta Pancakes
Brickwood takes inspiration from down under, bringing an authentic Aussie style brunch experience to London through a selection of adventurous and original breakfast adaptations. The perfect destination for foodies looking to try something new, Brickwood delivers a variety of (mainly) savoury dishes that you definitely won’t have seen before, alongside a lively atmosphere, great coffee and a pretty back garden eating space.
Try Native Mushrooms
Southside Cafe SW4
This little spot tucked away at the Southside of the Common may not seem the most glamorous, but offers one of the best value menus in Clapham. The unassuming cafe offers a selection of well delivered classics with its own twist, as well as refreshing smoothies, coffee and a strong selection of cakes and pastries. The modest front terrace provides a great place for people watching, while the relaxed atmosphere makes it ideal for a solo breakfast.
