Brickwood, Clapham Common

A new weekend calls for a new brunch spot. 
I've heard about Brickwood on the grape vine & always seen an enormous queue outside of its door, but its only until recently that I've become fixated by its bright green exterior & Australian nature.

You usually have to queue for a while to get a table, unless you go early, but its well worth the wait.
With a rather rustic, warming interior, it's a snug spot just next to Clapham Common tube station.

The counter's humming with waiting people and bustling takeaway coffee hunters.
I didn't mind the wait when I could ogle away at their savory muffins & paninis in the counter. 

I just so happened to bring along this beauty. This is one of the best girls I know, everyone say hello to my friend Cat! She cracks me up each & every day.

Whilst (as you'll soon see), the food in Brickwood is amazing- their coffee is just off the fricking chain. It's velvety, rich, flavoursome. 
It's everything you want out of a morning pick me up!

When Cat & I finally got our seats, we snuck away from the humming entrance and got about our business ordering brunch.

And, classic me, because I was feeling a bit wild, ordered a second coffee. 
Crazy, I know.

Finally, our starvation was over. 

Cat plumped for their French toasted brioche with hints of orange & cinnamon, a side of vanilla mascarpone and streaky bacon. (Smothered in maple syrup, naturally.)

Whilst, shock horror, I went for their smashed avocado with chorizo & poached eggs on sourdough.
Anything with avocado & I'm sold in a heartbeat. 

The food at Brickwood is presented immaculately. 
It's flavoursome, just the right sized to cure many a hangover, and easily hits the nail on the head.
Basically, if you don't mind a short wait, it's well worth it a million times over.

For an affordable, tasty brunch south of the river that'll revive any living soul back to health, its a real Australian gem.
