Park Street, Borough Market, London SE1 9AB
I really like this Italian Deli in Borough Market. It is less deli and more cafe. The coffee is ok - Monmouth is better. However, they have delicious Italian pastries which are fantastic for a breakfast or morning tea treat.
Good salads, great cakes - tiramisu is delicious.
What is best though is its care trade status. It is connected to an autism charity giving people with autism work opportunities.
Their exclusive olive oil is pricey but stunning, and is connected to a very good cause.

Fantastic coffee - consistent and quick. The queues can be a bit startling but they are very efficient and it is never longer than 15 minutes.
I prefer to have a single shot flat white. Their regular coffee is pretty strong!

Walked into Holly and Lil the other weekend and walked out with a very smart Harris tweed collar for our new puppy.
Very friendly staff, and very dog friendly environment. Make sure you take your dog as they are allowed to run around and generally rule the place.
Excellent quality gear - very well made.
Milkwood Rd, London
This is the perfect little bookshop. Wonderful small wedge of book heaven on Railton Road. There is a very well-edited selection. It is a very small shop, so don't expect Waterstones, but do expect very personal service and expect to find at at least two books that you want to buy. It is pleasant not to be overwhelmed by the selection.

Best over the counter wurst in town. If you like all things German foodwise you need to pay this place a visit. We really like the sausages, if you cook them at home, buy a can of Lowenbrau at the off licence and you will think you are back on the streets of Berlin!

It was a disgrace that I hadn’t been to Negril given that I only live five minutes away. I have now been twice in the week - once for dinner and once for breakfast.
Dinner - went for the jerk chicken roti wrap. Fantastic. Next time I am going to go for the curry selection, it looked and smelled delicious.
Really liked the bring-your-own action. Just note, it is a £2.50 corkage per person regardless of how much you drink, so it can make a can of beer a bit pricey! Just means you need to drink more.
Breakfast - enjoyed the vibe and atmosphere for breakfast. The Negril breakfast with jerk sausage was delicious.
Both times the service was friendly, but not necessarily speedy.
Definitely going back.
Imperial Wharf, London SW6 2UB
This is the place that I visit twice a year to buy a couple of cases of greater, higher-priced wine to have once and a while.
The selection is vast and has wines that none of the other big chain wine stores have.
I particularly like their knowledge. I usually put all my trust in the manager and tell them your budget and get them to make a case or two. I have discovered so many amazing wines this way, wines that I continue to return to as well as lay down for a year or three for enjoying later.
If you go buy a couple of cases, make sure you do a bit of bartering.

Have visited Roast twice now, once for breakfast and once for lunch.
No booking for breakfast so we were lucky to get a table as it was heaving on Saturday morning. We took the risk and were lucky.
Generally, I was underwhelmed by the menu and the food. It was standard breakfast food with nothing really exciting outside of the norm. We both ordered dishes with poached eggs. Both came out hard rather than with a runny yolk. Had to send them back.
However, lunch was a different society and I think this is where I would recommend it. I went for the fish and chips which I think is a Friday lunch regular. Wow. The mushy peas were the best I have ever had.
Both meals were not cheap, but their quality high.
Oh, lastly, coffee was terrible, but we are both coffee snobs.
Overall, go, enjoy breakfast but expect nothing out of the ordinary. Lunch, I think this is great mid-week if you are in the area or having a Friday off and tour the markets in the morning before a long lunch at Roast.

Being a South Londoner it was a trek to the Modern Pantry, but I really wanted to try out their brunch menu. Brunch is a much over-looked menu style in London and I am constantly looking for somewhere that serves interesting sweet and savoury food mid-morning and into the afternoon. Looking at the menu of the Modern Pantry I was excited.
After failing to get a booking online I phoned and was immediately offered a table. What’s the point of online booking if it doesn’t work.
Arrived 11AM on Saturday to a buzzing restaurant, with the outside seats taken by folks in their sunglasses and a collection of hairy dogs.
Inside, the decor is very attractive and airy, feels very contemporary.
Food was excellent. I had a prawn omlette which was stunning. It had just the right balance of curry for a brunch meal, and the serving size was spot on, not too much and not too little. The other two at my table had the waffles which sounded delicious, and granola which I didn’t see the point in but the hangover dictated it apparently.
However, I have to agree with the other reviews that the service really needs work on. We ordered a juice, and not until we asked the third time did it arrive. We had food of other orderers land on our table with real confusion when we said it wasn’t ours. Coffees were good taste-wise, but arrived cold.
This shouldn’t put you off trying, but a word to the Modern Pantry - get your service sharper! In London I suppose it will do well regardless of the service as there is a dearth of good eateries like the Modern Pantry, but this could become a truly great place if it nailed the service

WENT BACK again last night. Bloody fantastic food and superb service from very busy wait staff. The Ricotta gnudi with lamb ragu was simply perfection. Cannot remember the wine, but the recommendation was faultless.
Anywhere with a long busy bar where you can watch the chefs at work gets my votes. Actually, I would only want to sit at the bar here as I think the table area lacks atmosphere.
I was impressed that they served a mean aperol spritzer - order one if you like an orangy sparkly pick me up for a drink.
Stunning bread, but that is what you would expect from a son of the Sams at Moro. I think it is the same recipe and probably from the same sourdough starter. Very yum.
Food stunning. For me, the dessert won it. Almond and blood orange granita with bitter chocolate ice cream. Hit every note perfectly.
Bookings are hard to come by. Try for a late bar seat, say 9.30-10.00PM if you can wait that long.
