A fairly new café as it’s still in its first year, Tart is a welcome addition to The Pavement, home to some of Clapham Old Town’s best restaurants and shops. Having discovered that Tart were runners up in the Time Out Love London Awards last year we knew we were in for a bit of a treat.
Truly delicious coffee, perfectly roasted and strong as it comes; the perfect Saturday morning pick me up.
David, being the ever healthy gent that he is, ordered the smashed avocado with lime chilli on sourdough, with a generous side of parma ham and a perfectly poached egg. A very fresh, healthy and flavoursome dish that he really enjoyed. A classic brunch dish that really hit the spot.
What I really enjoyed at Tart is that even though they serve classic brunch dishes, they’re served with a twist. I ordered the Tart Benedict, which instead of the usual muffin is served in a puff pastry sandwich. The crisp, flaky pastry made a perfect contrast to the soft egg and salty parma ham.
In case you’re more of a coffee and cake kind of person, Tart serve an incredible selection of cakes and pastries. Ranging from croissants…
Carrot cake with coconut frosting…
Chocolate chip cookies and loads more! They’re freshly made so I imagine the selection changes regularly, which is good if you plan on being a regular customer!
With lots of their menu items being gluten free it’s a fabulous spot for a weekend brunch or a quick coffee and a cake with friends.
The only downside? The service was quite slow and the server had forgotten about our coffees. Though I have to say, the staff are very friendly and it wouldn’t stop me going back; I just wouldn’t brunch here if I was in a rush.
But then, who really wants a quick brunch anyway?
A real gem for a Tart-ed up brunch if you ask me. Oh, and I can’t wait to try their hampers for a picnic on Clapham Common when the weather gets a little warmer!
