Cappuccino, SW16 4AQ

Cafe in Norbury.

It's quite small, being half of a subdivided shop unit, and seats just 30 people inside and another four outside on the pavement. Entry is into a narrow space photo which opens up further back photo. Decor is fairly smart, in greys, browns, and creams, with art on the walls.

Most of the menu is British cafe food including fried breakfasts, sandwiches, omelettes, jacket potatoes, and hot dishes like scampi and chips, lasagne, and spaghetti bolognese. However, they also do a few Portuguese dishes such as grilled sardines and steak and eggs. They are licensed to serve alcohol.

bob visited on a Monday lunchtime in August 2016. There was one customer sitting outside when I arrived shortly before noon, and two more groups arrived while I was there.

Although I ordered the builder's breakfast (£9) they actually brought me the traditional English breakfast (£7) photo, though they did at least charge me the right price for what I got. (When I queried what they'd brought, they just said something about having run out of black pudding.)

The hash browns were a touch oily, as if the oil wasn't hot enough. The fried egg was cooked perfectly, though. The mushrooms were pretty good. The beans weren't swimming in sauce, which I appreciated. The grilled tomato wasn't grilled quite enough. The sausage was disappointing, but the bacon was OK.

Pineapple smoothie (£3.25) photo was quite nice, with a lot of pineapple in it.

Accessibility: A short but steep ramp to get in. Most of the interior seating is down a step at the back photo, and the toilet is accessed from here too.
