Lucie Loves... Eat // We found a great spot for breakfast, brunch or lunch @BirdhouseUK, Battersea, London. (Excellent coffee too!)


On Saturday, despite the blustery showers, we decided to try and find a new little London cafe to tickle our tastebuds. We searched the London Coffee Map app, (an indispensable tool!) jumped on the next 295 bus from Hammersmith to Clapham Junction and tootled back along up St John’s Hill in search of the vibrant yellow Birdhouse cafe sign.

What we drank:

  • 1 x caffe latte, £2.80 - large, made with Climpson & Sons coffee beans (the Sidamo Espresso Blend consisting of 50% Ethiopian Sidamo and 50% Brazil Fazenda Paraiso.)
  • 1 x hot chocolate with marshmallows, £2.70

What we ate:

1 x chicken breast, bacon jam, white cabbage & mayonnaise bocadito, £6.50

1 x Baked eggs with chorizo, mushroom, spinach, tomato and toast, £9


Absolutely delicious food! The coffee was very nice. The baked eggs far exceeded our expectations. They came in their cute little Labour & Wait-esq enamel milk pan, complete with little felt handle-cover. It was sooo filling but very yummy.

JMG thought his sandwich was very nice too.

We’d recommend this place for couples, families or friends looking for a (GOOD) bite to eat in quirkily designed surroundings. If you love repurposed worktops, pretty, eclectic bird-themed artwork, stainless steel and zinc industrial-style fittings with a splash of sunshine yellow colour - this is the place for you.
