A sourdough bakery turned cafe, situated in the middle of the bustling Clapham High Street, never ceases to have a long line of peeps waiting to get in for a mid morning weekend breakfast.
The concept is so simple it hurts, and yet why would people queue to toast their own bread? All I know, is that I keep coming back for more, because toasting all kinds of freshly made sourdough bread at your own table with your very own toaster is very cool. And you can have as much of it as you want, with all the condements provided; D.I.Y (do it yourself) Toast, so simple.
|Inside, always packed (note the toasters!)|
The decor is warm; wooden tables, including some high benches and stools, with the main bread station in the middle. All the bread is made in-house, and a good selection can also be purchased to take home.
|Full English + D.I.Y £9.95|
|Wild Mushrooms + D.I.Y £8.55|
If you are in the area, or a local this is a must go to. You might want to arrive at around 10am when they open, because otherwise you will have to wait in line. The restaurant is packed till at least 12.30pm.
