Basic 'school' type seating with a sticky table top (suppose its 'urban') Sticky floor that may see a mop every now and again? Paintwork that I guess has seen paint at some point? The coffee was decent but should be at that price! The place...More

When Birdhouse first opened, I was intrigued to see what it was like. St John's Hill had traditionally been a road that always struggled with restaurants but Birdhouse has stood the test of time and is a true stalwart on the coffee/lunch scene in Clapham...More

Definitely the best coffee in Wandsworth and served alongside some great and creative sandwiches and platters, as well as offering delicious cakes and biscuits. The pumpkin and corn tamale with smashed avocado and salsa was amazing, and the bocaditos with some really creative fillings are...More
