The Table Café
83 Southwark Street, Southwark, London, SE1 0HX
Buzzy and vibrant, Southwark’s Table Café serves up high-quality, sustainably sourced brunch fare in relaxed surrounds. Dubbed simple food with flair, the menu offers a wide range of enticing dishes from an organic fry-up and traditional fish and chips to decadent waffle and pancake stacks. We kicked off our meal with two refreshing London beers – a crisp, hoppy Nico lager from Orbit brewery in Walworth, and a satisfyingly bitter Windrush stout. I was in the mood for something vegan, so opted for the V Burger – a hearty and delicious sweet potato, Portobello mushroom and chickpea patty topped with crushed avocado and served with beetroot relish, lettuce, tomato and triple-cooked chips. My dining partner enjoyed the inventively presented Table Caesar salad, for which chargrilled chicken, anchovies and aged Parmigiano-Reggiano were arranged atop a half romaine lettuce, and our platter was complete with side servings of sweet potato wedges and mouth-watering halloumi bites dressed with green sauce and mint. The staff at The Table Café were friendly and charismatic, the service was attentive and the atmosphere was jovial, with working chefs singing along to the radio as they cooked. A laid-back brunch haven, The Table Café boasts something for everyone.
