    Great addition to the Balham cafe scene. Monmouth coffee, great flat whites. Sandwiches delicious and a nice setting to ease into the weekend

    My favorite local coffee shop. Good coffee. Pleasant staff and nice interior. Be sure to check out the basement.

    Cute and quirky coffee place! Ambience is great and there's lots to look at with all the vintage bits and pieces.

    Nice little cafe with some boutique clothes and homewares on sale too. Coffee is good, but sometimes the staff get a bit stressed.

    One baby chair which for any coffee has seems strange. A part take away, part service approach leaves you feeling under served, do one or the other. Not overly friendly either.

    Was going to have lunch here but the staff just kept chatting to previous customer, rather than serve me.
