Super favourite amongst locals and professionals in the area. Great selection of salads, sandwiches, pastas, wines, meat and cheese, and take away lunch. Usually the queue starts on the street outside of the shop.

I think this area, has beautiful houses, my home is a 20 minutes walk from oval station and 15 minutes walk to stock well station. There are also plenty of good supermarkets within the local area, including; Tesco's, Lidl, Iceland, and Sainsbury's. My Son's school is only a 2 minutes walk from where we're living, and everything in this area almost seems very convenient. It only takes 25 minutes to get to Covent Garden from where we live.
I love Vauxhall because of its diversity, cultural backgrounds, convenient. I am able to take the public transport easily and travel to Central London. When I first moved to London from Scotland I was absolutely scared to the change. i was not used to the fast paced environment but I am fascinated in meeting new people for all walks of life. There are a lot of opportunities in London and lots of things to see. The most of all is the fact that I am able to see famous people which is a bonus.

There are several gentrified areas, and smart roads of terraced townhouses on streets such as Fentiman Road and Heyford Avenue are well known as desirable locations. Vauxhall is also a popular residential area for Members of Parliament and civil servants due to its proximity to the Houses of Parliament and Whitehall. Much of the area in Vauxhall contains light industry, offices and government buildings. Many companies and organisations were attracted in the past by Vauxhall's central location and comparatively cheap rent compared to Westminster on the other side of the river. In recent years, Vauxhall's riverside has undergone major redevelopment with the construction of a number of modern residential and office blocks, most notably the distinctive MI6 building at Vauxhall Cross. There are also a number of new commercial businesses moving in to the area.
