Where do Streatham and surrounding areas locals go?

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.

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.

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!

Tariq Halal Meats

An amazing butchers in Streatham that is part of a small franchise of equally great stores.

La Casita

A fantastic choice of Spanish food and drink all at great value!

Tooting Bec Lido

A great place for a swim! Because it's an open air pool, it's ideal in the summer.

Brooks and Gao

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.

West Norwood Health and Leisure Centre

So many activities for adults and children. I personally love the exercise classes, Zumba and Boxfit.

Milk

Amazing place for food and particularly busy at the weekends for breakfast - you can often find queues there, it's so popular!!

Blackbird Bakery

A cafe selling delicious coffee, cakes, bread and healthy juices ready to go.

Lavish Habit

Monmouth Coffee and shopping while you chat! It is a furniture store and boutique, as well as a cafe serving breakfast, lunch and sweet treats with friendly, cosy surroundings.

Yeha Noha

Organic food, homemade stuff, including cakes and pastries, meditation evenings, live music at the weekends, an outside terrace and a really funky interior... Love it!!

Crystal Palace Park

A fantastic spot for enjoying the sunshine!

The William Morris

Sat on the River Wandle, a traditional, warm and welcoming pub. Serves a great Sunday roast. Perfect for a drink on a summer's afternoon.

Tartine

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