There are endless food and drink establishments around Clapham Common that have a lively atmosphere and The Jam Tree is included in these. It's amazing in the summer, as the whole front opens up into a terrace. They also do bottomless prosecco brunch at the weekend.

Been serving amazing breakfast and lunch in the heart of Brixton since 1993. The chicken salad is a winner judging by the queues outside the door!
