Historical version 4 of Breadroom, SW9 8LB (view current version)

The Breadroom is a French bakery and cafe in Brixton's Market Row offering French breads(photo) and patisseries(photo) as well as sandwiches and other savoury light meals(photo of menu).

On a Saturday morning visit in September, itsbruce and Jen sampled the breakfast menu(photo of menu). Jen had the baked egg with bacon and spinach (photo, served with baked tomato, toasted bread and an americano coffee for £4.50), which she found very filling and heartily enjoyed. itsbruce had the continental breakfast (photo, £5);the flavours and textures of the yoghurt with granola, honey and fresh strawberries were nicely balanced and not too sweet. The fresh pastry of the croissant was sweeter than itsbruce is used to but again not overly s. The coffee was perfectly acceptable but offered no competition to nearby establishments in the market. While there are more dramatic and exotic breakfast venues in Brixton market, this was classic fare well done.

There is seating for six immediately outside the cafe and for another three or four inside; this seems to be a popular breakfast venue (justifiably so, based on itsbruce and Jen's experience) so market visitors should not count on the availability of a place at the tables.

Last visited by itsbruce and Jen, 24 Sep 2011. Opening hours taken from the Facebook page, prices from the menus on display.
