The Apple Blue

££££

This Balham spot serves some pretty incredible brunches like fried chicken on a pancake-style Yorkshire pudding (we know) and channa shakshuka, as well as some pretty great seasonal specials. Take their ‘thicc cocoa’ in the winter, for example—a rich hot chocolate with a chopped chocolate rim, and topped with a giant marshmallow—and creamy iced Korean coffee in the summer. They’ve also got iced Spanish chai lattes, iced Apple Blue lattes (made with pea flower tea, cinnamon, and apples), and iced chocolate. You should know that it's walk-in only and gets pretty busy on the weekend.
