Milk is a great cafe in Balham, and one of the best spots in South London to grab brunch, both in terms of vibe and food. There’s always a wait at weekends (though staff bring coffee while you wait), but it’s a very nice place to sit outside and people watch when it’s warm. As for the food, everything’s made with the same attention to detail that most restaurants reserve for fancy dinners - the banana pancakes with maple and pecan are killer, and even the sourdough with goats cheese and honey is very good. Milk also stays open late Thursday to Saturday for dinner, which they serve along with natural wines.
