A great little spot in the middle of a not great area.

Hideaway is split between the cafe/restaurant part on the roadside and the highly rated jazz bar downstairs at the back. Both are definitely worth a visit as the food is immense and the music in the jazz bar attracts some big names in the industry.

The cafe is open all day serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner and the staff are great as well. The menu does change quite frequently so try a few things over multiple visits to avoid disappointment. The Chorizo Burger was a stand out for me as well as the Lamb Tagine and the cocktail selection is very good for the location.

The jazz bar is immense and we got to see Russell Howard from the front row as part of a charity event which was amazing. Some of the jazz acts include CIYO Brown and Atlantic Soul Orchestra, with the Monday Night Jam Sessions and Comedy Clubs also worth a visit.

Shame it's in Streatham, not the most ideal location for such a cool venue.
