When looking for a good brunch spot in South West London, Tooting has it going on.
If you were to ask any Tooting-ite where a good place for brunch is – then we guarantee they’ll all say the same thing: go to MUD.
MUD is a brunch lover’s dream and due to the queues outside every weekend, is rather a popular little spot. It’s an independently run, Antipodean-style café just off the high street that serves up one hell of a brunch. We went along one late Saturday afternoon and were greeted with the inevitable (but thankfully short!) queue. We were kept entertained with a coffee and before we knew it, we were escorted to our table inside the tiny albeit charming café.
The menu is short but classic, with everything from eggs any way to buckwheat pancakes. We couldn’t resist the Corn Fritter Stack – delicious corn fritters, avocado, chilli jam topped with a Burford brown egg – or the added extra side of streaky bacon to go with it. And the avocado and poached egg on sourdough (of course, with a side of bacon) was a heavenly thing to behold.
We teamed our dishes with a bowl of sweet potato fries to share (totally unnecessary given the brunch dishes generous portion size but too good to pass on) and washed everything down with fresh juices, mint tea and coffees.
Brunch at MUD won’t disappoint and it’s definitely worth the wait, so make that trip down the Northern Line for a truly satisfying brunch experience.
