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.

The owners who are friendly and love a chat and a joke. The bar sells great tapas and you can enjoy an old fashioned leisurely lunch in a bar that has the atmosphere of a bygone age - love it.

The best decor I have ever seen in a bar. The Hamlet is almost like a Hidden Gem in Streatham. Beautiful food, cocktails and staff.

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!

A great recently opened restaurant on Streatham Hill. Go here for something completely different to the other places in the area.

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

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...

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.

A modern British restaurant overlooking Brockwell Lido. Great for breakfast - plus lunch and dinner for that matter!

This lovely quirky bar is quiet mid-week for a lovely intimate meal or catch up. And lively on the weekend with a lovely band. Good atmosphere. Rustic style.

I love Streatham Hill, with all it's new bars, coffee shops and eateries, it has become a popular place to be, morning, midday, or evening.
I love Streatham Hill so much because of the variety of places to eat. Get fresh croissants and coffee at Le tour de France on Sunnyhill Road. Eat the best Jerk chicken at the White Lion whilst listening to great music, or eat authentic pizza with the Sicilian brothers Bravi Ragazzi, again on Sunnyhill Road.
Close to Brixton, Brixton Village and Pop Brixton. Can always get a seat on the tube from Brixton! Great restaurants at Naughty Piglets and The Shrub and Shutter.
Lived in Streatham Hill for 13 years. Has the diversity of people that Clapham and Balham don't have anymore. I can say this as I am a born and bred South Londoner and was born in Clapham. It feels safe and we have really friendly and helpful neighbours. Tooting Bec common is a stone's throw away and part of the common has a distinct villagey feel. The houses are a decent size and many of the roads are avenues.
Streatham Hill is such a lovely place to live. It was always okay actually, but in the last couple of years it has just improved so much. We are loving all our new cafes, bars and restaurants. We can access Balham, Brixton and Dulwich within minutes, plus the beautiful green spaces of Tooting Bec, Streatham Common & Rookery and Brockwell Park, and our house is gorgeous with a large garden. Property prices have increased quickly though, making it increasingly unaffordable to some, which is a double edged sword of course.
Streatham Hill borders desirable suburbs like Clapham and Balham, but the property prices are far more affordable. The transport links are fantastic with regular buses and easy access to the rail station. Whilst bars and restaurants are starting to establish themselves in the area, it's also convenient to get to surrounding areas. A safe and quiet area without the high property prices.

Streatham Hill is a residential area to the north of Streatham in South London. Development accelerated after the opening of Streatham Hill railway station on the West End of London and Crystal Palace Railway in 1856. Some estates, such as Telford Park to the west of Streatham Hill were spaciously planned with facilities such as tennis clubs. Another generously sized development was Roupell Park, the area near Christchurch Road promoted by the Roupell family. Other streets adopted more conventional suburban layouts. There is now a mixture of buildings from all architectural eras of the past 200 years.
