Milk is a great cafe in Balham, and one of the best spots in South London to grab brunch, both in terms of vibe and food. There’s always a wait at weekends (though staff bring coffee while you wait), but it’s a very nice place to sit outside and people watch when it’s warm. As for the food, everything’s made with the same attention to detail that most restaurants reserve for fancy dinners - the banana pancakes with maple and pecan are killer, and even the sourdough with goats cheese and honey is very good. Milk also stays open late Thursday to Saturday for dinner, which they serve along with natural wines.

Ozone Coffee Roasters
Ozone in Shoreditch is best known as one of London’s best coffee spots, but their non-stop food offerings make them a restaurant in our book.
If you live anywhere near Victoria Park, Pavilion Cafe should be a weekend staple for coffee and pancakes. It’s fantastic during the summer.
Farm Girl Cafe
You’ll want to make fun of Farm Girl’s macadamia butter, but you’ll also probably like it. Head to this Notting Hill spot for a quick, healthy meal.
