Federation Coffee

Delicious coffee made using Campbell and Syme beans, food made by Salon Brixton and sweet treats too.

The Agile Rabbit

Great pizza, drinks, live music at weekends and friendly service.

The Prince of Wales

A Brixton institution, this bar has amazing roof terraces and serves food in the day too. You can dance the night away until the early hours when they have DJs playing.

Brockwell Park

A great place for an early morning run, where you feel like you aren't even in London - yet you are only 10 minutes from central London on the Victoria line. There are tennis courts, a gym and a Lido too if running isn't your thing.

Pop Brixton

The new go to place in Brixton. Restaurants, bars and work spaces in converted shipping containers.

Off the Cuff

A wine bar with cheese, live music and cheap drinks. They also sell furniture...

Seven at Brixton

Unique homemade cocktails in the middle of Brixton Market, made using their own secret recipes. A small place, but very nice for a date. They also sell food.

Herne Hill Market

A buzzing Sunday market, right near Herne Hill Station.

Valhalla

The best breakfast I have had in Brixton and an amazing array of coffees and real fruit smoothies.

Nardulli

Nardulli makes the best ice cream! It is located opposite Clapham Common and there is always a queue outside in the summer. The mint choc chip is delicious!

Negril

The best Caribbean food and the rum punch really packs a punch! The platter is amazing and the saltfish fritters with the gravy are unbelievable...

Tsunami

I was really impressed with this sushi restaurant just off Clapham High Street. They serve very good quality dishes made using fresh ingredients and the atmosphere is perfect for a catch up with friends or a special date night.

Brixton Village Grill

A cheap and cheerful breakfast in trendy Brixton Village. This restaurant also serves lunch and dinner.
