Federation Coffee review image

Federation Coffee


Federation Coffee is where you go when you want good coffee close to Brixton Market. It’s cosy without being pokey, and it’s always full of people hanging out and doing things like talking with other humans with eye contact (they don’t have Wi-Fi). The food’s good in a casual, avocado and eggs kind of way – try the ricotta and salmon on toast, which is a nice change from the usual rotation of brunch dishes.

Wild Caper is a cosy and low-key cafe in Brixton Market that’s good for Eggs Florentine and Bloody Marys at the weekend.

Monmouth Coffee The Borough

The best coffee in Borough (if not all of London), and their filter coffee is especially good.
