Tried and True, Putney
There’s a reason this place, in a location relatively off the beaten track, is regularly packed with a crowd as loyal as those to a central London eatery. The food and coffee here refuses to be anything less than outstanding, every time. It’s the place that locals come to, and wish that they could keep as their secret. Bright, beachy design and cheerful staff only add to the bliss.
Ever heard of a Pulled Pork Benedict? Neither had we – however Tried and True‘s is award winning. Rest assured that lighter options are available – the scrambled eggs are whisked into a thing of beauty, the avocado sides are generous, there’s toasted muesli and organic produce galore. Coffee is serious here – Red Brick Espresso will set you up for the day.
Wake with sore heads and see with joy that Uber is playing ball sans surcharge for once. Head over mid morning and go all out for a brunch that’ll satisfy you all day. Order two mains and share bites of the other’s. If it’s warm, seek out the sunspot of a garden outside and feel your hangover slip quickly out of sight.
Avoid the times when the children of South West London are brought here for their babycinos.
