A stumble away from Clapham Common tube station, Common is a cosy cafe and one-stop shop whether you come during the day or evening. It’s ideal for tapping away on your laptop for a few hours during the week (hot tip: the plug points are towards the back and the front corner), for a quick post-work cocktail (it’s open until 9pm every day), or gossiping over toasted banana bread at the weekend. But our favourite time of day is the afternoon, when sunlight floods the airy space and terrace tables out front. Plus, if you’re enamoured with the trinkets on display, like pretty vases and bamboo trays, you can likely buy it from their in-house boutique. See, we said it was a one-stop shop.
