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

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

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

    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.
