Lovely place for a coffee in the morning before getting in to the office and amazing cooked breakfasts with thick milkshakes. It turns into a bar at night with an extensive cocktail menu and it's open until 2am!

On a miserable English day, the best place to go to put a 'spring' in your step is Hildreth Street Market, where stall owners sell beautiful seasonal flowers.

One of only a few decent coffee shops on Streatham High Road. It's slightly pricier than its competitors, but for the quality of the food and coffee, it's justified.

This bar serves drink and food throughout the day, but by night it becomes one of the most popular music venues in Clapham. There's DJs and dancing in the garden until the early hours.

About Hyde Farm Estate
The Hyde Farm Estate is a residential area situated in Balham, a district of south London, in the United Kingdom. The Hyde Farm Estate was developed between 1896 and 1916 by Ernest Hayes-Dashwood. It is bounded to the south by Emmanuel Road, which in turn determines the northern boundary of Tooting Common. To the east, the boundary is formed by Radbourne Road, with Hydethorpe and Haverhill Roads to the north and west, respectively, completing the perimeter. On 13 February 1996 the London Borough of Lambeth designated a portion of the estate as a Conservation Area under the Civic Amenities Act 1967.
