On this lovely Sunday morning myself and my brother decided to go for a walk to Wandsworth and find somewhere for breakfast, brunch, whatever was available! We ended up walking as far as East Putney and found this little interesting Italian themed place called Bibo! We got there a little before 12pm so decided to wait and have a coffee before brunch was being served! I loved the coffee cups that our coffees were served in and was a lovely cuppa too!
The menu was really interesting and I have to admit it was hard making a decision! After a lot of humming and hahing we went for a toasted focaccia and a peperonata.
The toasted focaccia consisted of peperonata, fried eggs, tomatoes and mozarella at £7.50.
The peperonata consisted of baked and nduja which is basically an Italian spreadable pork based ingredient. This came in at £8.50.
Whilst we were eating the Wandsworth remeberance parade took place and we had a great view from our table so that was an added bonus!
The total bill came in £25.75 for two brunch options and two coffees and included the service charge! I think very reasonable for tasty food and coffee – if you are in the area then definitely go try this out!!!
so, if you didn’t know already I have an eateries to do list (a want, rather than a need but that’s a minor detail). Recommend by a friend, I jotted down on my list and last weekend decided to go and try Brickwood Cafe in Clapham Common. Just a few doors down from the Alex, it’s a great place to start off your Sunday chilling.
Obviously because it seems to be a very popular place, there was a queue out the door but, because it was a nice day most people were looking to be seated out the back in the garden.
I was happy enough to go with what came up first and so after about 15 minutes we were seated. The staff were very friendly and seemed very genuine too. The menu was inticing and brought together by their oz/kiwi inspirations.
I decided to go for the poached eggs and kamura (sweet potato) on sourdough bread and of course I had to get a side of avocado (obviously like).
My friend opted for the smashed avocado and chorizo with a side of sweet potato.
As you can see it looks delicious and correct it tasted amazing. Literally ate every last bite. The only thing which was a let down was the time wait for the food. Now in fairness they did tell us it was going to be a 30minute wait, but by the time it came to us, it was 45minutes. I did manage to squeeze in two coffees while I waited but it was just the only thing which put a small damper. Imagine if there was a hangover on the cards. 😱

Anyway, I was super impressed with the food and the atmosphere and then staff were lovely and friendly. Also loving the recycling vibe with cardboard menu boards, pegs and the ceiling covered with recycling bags.
Total: I paid ~£15.00 which was great value for great food. I will definitely visit again and probably check out the Balham location.
