We’re entirely on board with the sentiment of this cool coffee spot on Brixton Hill, and pretty much everything else about it. As well as your classic pastries, sandwiches, and bacon baps, this place has excellent coffee and one of the cutest, hidden gardens in London. Inside you’ll find a sort of modern lumberjack dream, with lots of oak, plants, and the smell of fresh coffee beans. Just be warned, although it’s a great spot for a catch up or getting some work done, they close at 4pm in the week.
