Clapham Common’s Best Breakfast and Brunch Spots

The Black Lab Coffee House 

 Clapham Common South Side

The ‘Lab’ in the name is not short for Laboratory, although you might think that they have their coffee down to an exquisite science. It’s for Labrador, as the owners often welcome guests and their human friends strolling in after a walk on the Common.

They rotate their coffee regularly so there’s always something new to try and they serve a range of breakfasts including sumptuous vegan options.


Go for: Superb coffee, dog-friendly, wifi, outdoor seating overlooking Clapham Common.

 Clapham Park Road

Don’t mix this one up with Fantasia in Old Town. While somewhat ramshackle, Fantasia2 is not your average greasy spoon. You can expect a solid full English breakfast at reasonable prices.


Go for: the freshly squeezed juices, sausages from Smithfield Market, veggie options, being easy on the wallet (take cash!).

Gail’s Bakery 

 Clapham Old Town

It’s rare to find an on-site bakery in London, and while Gail’s bakery is a chain, we cannot fault them on being one of London’s finest.

From their layered buttery croissants, to their artisanal breads and sandwiches packed-to-the-brim with well-sourced ingredients, you’d be forgiven for thinking you were in Paris.


Go for: Expertly made fare, a place to get work done, brunch.
