Located a stone throw away from Clapham Common tube, this café could be Clapham’s best kept secret. All brick and wood interiors, the ceilings are covered in a patchwork of old coffee sacks. The theme continues outside into a rustic courtyard, a sanctuary in busy Clapham. The coffee is smooth and expertly made using Caravan’s ‘Market Blend’ beans.
This bakery-cum-café has been popular with Clapham locals for the past decade. Bread Etc is cute and cosy, with toasters on tables that create a super fun atmosphere. Enormous baskets of freshly baked sourdough loaves take over the high set counter-top in the middle of the room, wafting the scent of fresh bread out on to the street.
A little slice of the big apple arrives to Clapham in the form of Honky Tonk.
