Summary

“The best breakfast in town”, with “great staples and specials that deliver on flavour”, has earned cult status for this Antipodean café in Balham, now branching into evening service. “You have to pick your times to get a seat”, though – “my absolute favourite place to be at 10.30am on a Saturday morning; unfortunately, I’m not the only one...”. A cynical minority do loathe the place though: “it’s masquerading as some sort of high-end funky elite dining experience” for “wannabe hipsters”.

Summary

“Hands-down the best breakfast in SW London” (“you need to get there early because this is no secret”) is to be found at this kickass Antipodean joint in Balham, which (recently expanding) now has “an alcohol license and plans for evening openings”. “Amazing flat whites” and other coffee too, but “avoid the yummy mummy post-school-drop-off rush”. Top Menu Tip – the Convict and Young Betty.

"Great idea but overpriced and no effort is put in by staff due to Numbers being so high that customer service is not a priority. Queues out the door at weekend are annoying! "
