Where do CR4 locals go?

Cut the Mustard

This delightful cafe between Tooting and Streatham is a real hidden gem. They have everything you would expect on a brunch menu and the portions are huge!

The Bull

This gastropub next to Streatham Common is fantastic! The décor is really cool, there's an impressive outdoor seating area with fires and the food is outstanding.


Classic hot and cold desserts, milkshakes and gelato served in a low-lit, purple and black setting.


Great brunch, cakes and coffee!


Just along Mitcham Lane, this cafe serves a delicious brunch menu. The coffee is really good and the dishes are all served with a MUD twist - the prettiest breakfast I've ever seen!


Awesome Lebanese food at a good price. I would recommend a £6 lunch box deal, but make sure you order a little in advance.

Graveney and Meadow

A restaurant with cool, quirky décor and a great bar for a quiet drink.

The Little Taperia

A recent addition to Tooting High Street, this delightful tapas restaurant has a very reasonably priced menu.

Chicken Shop

Much better than your average high street chicken shop! You must visit this place...

Fisher & Co.

Really nice paninis, jacket potatoes and pastries. It serves a good cup of tea as well!

The Rookery

A walled garden that would not look out of place in a BBC costume drama. Stunning throughout the year and still relatively undiscovered by the residents of South London. The gardens are beautifully maintained by a justifiably proud set of volunteers.


An amazing restaurant for brunch or dinner, serving dishes from all over the world. The ribs are fantastic!


A really nice café for lunch or a quick coffee with friends. They serve Mediterranean-style food and breakfasts until 5pm on the weekends.

The Coffee Co. of Tooting

Brand new coffee shop that has opened and I love it! Delicious coffee, chilled out atmosphere and a great edition to Tooting. The falafel and avocado sandwich is awesome!

Honest Burgers

Awesome place for a burger and definitely some of the best in London.
