Cafes and Coffee Shops
  • Kente sadly closed down in early 2011, but in August the space at 126 Streatham High Rd reopened as I Love Coffee. Completely revamped with a much darker interior/leather furniture. Coffee experience so far pretty good.
  • Perfect Bland
  • Pefect Blend up at Streatham Hill
  • I've just discovered Rosca. At last a coffee shop that sells gorgegous coffee as it should taste. Service is always with a smile despite busy periods. Up from the Halifax I'd recommend it to anyone.
  • My place, no one ever comes :(
  • re. Courtney's Cafe by Wetherspoons and the old Maccy Dees - yeah, the 1 breakfast isn't bad, but watch out that they don't short change you. I haven't been back since I recieved change from a fiver instead of the tenner I'd given the sour faced, unsympathetic cow. Its a scummy place anyway tho
  • Wholemeal
  • For the fastest and best internet cafe in Streatham Hill I recommend Paradise internet & cafe. Quiet, very friendly, great coffee (try the cappucinos)and toilets! (believe me, that's very important!)
  • I think the Kente coffee shop is very nice and the man who runs it is too. A good place for a lazy Sunday
  • Kente Coffee house, Xinc Bar - both host festival events and have friendly staff
  • Perfect Blend Cafe near Streatham Hill Station is the best new trendy cafe around. Owned by a really good looking guy his cafe has a trendy interior with outside seating area for the warmer days. Also plays decent music! Food is fab from the baguette to the salmon fish cakes enjoy! Serves Illy Coffee mmmmmm
  • Now has three independent cafes, Kente Coffe House, La Cafeterria nd Perfect Blend, all on the stretch between Streatham Hill station and the main post office (opposite the ugly Kwik Fit). The best thing about these is that they are NOT Starbucks/Coffee "Republic"/Aroma/Cafe Nero with their foreign staff whom you cannot understand but still charge you three quid for a bog-standard drink dressed up as something fancy and no decent savoury snacks
  • Boogalu's on Sunnyhill Road do the best coffe for miles and weekend breakfasts are fabulous.
  • PLEASE someone open a decent cafe!!! We are crying out for one Tour de France is trying to encourage some al-fresco eating but its range is limited. If anyone is interested please support them and this might encourage then to invest in some decent coffee cups a coffee machine and some new recipes.
  • The Marrakech Coffee Shop serves up some great fattening cakes to accompany a cup of their turkish brew. It looks a little seedy from the outside - and it is, to be frank - but it stays open late, doesn't cost too much and is pretty relaxed and friendly.
  • Apart from one or two greasy spoons, you're hard pushed to find a simple cafe, but there's one around the corner of MacDonalds
  • Manna Coffee shop and Christian Bookshop, opposite St Leonards, drop in for a browse, a coffee, a snack or a chat
  • Marrakesh the morrocan coffee shop. near streatham green, the roman spa and mrs wongs. it's minted in there. they may give you funny looks as it's kinda an arab thing but if you seee a white female with a bunch o lads come and join our game of cards. usually in there weekdays 10pm till closing (whenever they feel like it) - this isn't a prostitute thing i'm merely being friendly honest. it's a great place to go and sit after the pubs kick you out and you get a wide variety of little morrocan sweet things. mmmmmmm.and pool table downstairs. but the lights sometimes go out and the toilet can be a bit rank so bring your own bog roll and some tables are wobbly but don't let that deter you.
  • Did you know you can by a cup of FAIRETRADE Tea at the PLANNETS Cafe (opposite the Police Station, on Shrubbery Road), They make good sandwiches etc. too!
  • The deli in Sunnyhill Road is called Le Tour de France. Their produce is take-away only. Why go out for breakfast when you can brew some of their coffee from beans and eat their croissants in bed with your loved one. Web-site at Kente Coffee House in the High Road close to the main post office does very good coffee and some great sandwiches.
  • Great French deli on Sunnyhill Road - near the old school
