Low lie the FIELDS of Rookery Road

So today I made it my mission to finally go up to Clapham Common and try out fields(it wasn’t a mission only a bus ride but hey let’s be dramatic 😝) 

Located on Rookery Road next to the skating park this little beaut was not what I expected especially from being at the sister cafe Milk! It’s totally random and if I have to admit “shoreditch” but wow everyone wanted to be here and the atmosphere was pretty down to earth and relaxed- no snobs allowed, well you’re allowed but you better behave and chill out! #justsaying  

The front of house guy (*insert name here*) was super friendly and in my case accommodating seeing as I was a party of one. The place was hopping and everyone was putting their names on the 45 minute waiting list (always a good sign)

The good thing was that you could order a coffee and sit on the sidelines while you are waiting, always look on the bright side lads!      

 I got myself a coffee, a flat white to be exact (£2.40) which was so good , I definitely haven’t had a good coffee like that in awhile!  

 Quickly chatting to the front of house guy he said this place has been open for just over 18months now and said at this time (springtime) when the weather is getting good is always a tricky time when it comes to staffing and table accommodation! Hence the massive queues and #waitinglistbants – he said as it comes into the summer months the staffing numbers increase and the outside area is doubled in size with tables! So enough about that lets get down to business and showcase the food!

Eggs on Brixton sourdough (£5.50) with on the side, smoked salmon (£4.00) and smashed avo (£3.50)   

   The smashed avocado was literally the best I have ever tasted and I was informed that it was the right blend of lemon and salt which makes its a winning dish! Yummy yummy! Even got me some holy water 😝 – humour is everything!  I would 100% recommend this place the food is out of this world, the staff are really friendly and it’s just something different to try! 

Just remember though it’s only open Friday through to Sunday (9am-5pm) and they don’t take reservations (first come first serve policy)
