London Breakfasts: Gastro in Clapham

Well, I'll refrain from sharing what I was doing having breakfast on the other side of the city. But I did wake up in great spirits, and had the most lovely little breakfast.

Actually, this is a cute cute little french joint I quite enjoy. The prices are decent, the atmosphere is truly French, not snotty "international cuisine" French, but homely "cafe du coin" French. The croque-madame was a treat, and where else can you get your coffee in a bowl in London?

This is also a good place to come for dinner, they do a great bavette with bearnaise.

I'll miss Clapham, the park is lovely. Oh well, we'll always have Paris.

67 Venn Street,


  1. That does look like a 'French eatery' I'd be tempted to head to for a meal, too many French restaurants in London have that snotty '"international cuisine"' feeling about them which is totally off putting. Love the look of the croque-madame and coffee in a bowl is the way to kick off day in London.

  2. Hi Timothy, have you headed yet? I'm on the opposite side of town, so it's a real trek for me. But really, it's impossible to find a real little bistrot in this town. I just did a review of Trullo, in Islington, check it out...
