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!

La Casita

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

Tariq Halal Meats

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

Tooting Bec Lido

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

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.


The best live music venue in South London.

West Norwood Health and Leisure Centre

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

Le Tour de France

The best fresh coffee, croissants and bread. Lovely family-owned independent. Get there early for their bread and croissants - they sell out fast.


Great brunch, cakes and coffee!

The Castle

Jump off the tube at Tooting Broadway and straight to the bar! The beer garden is amazing. Definitely one of the best pubs in Tooting and South London.

Hildreth Street Market

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.

Fisher & Co.

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

Blackbird Bakery

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


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...

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.
