People come to this attractive corner spot inside Brixton Market’s covered arcade to work on their computers, eavesdrop, watch the world go by, or chat with friends. Grab a perch with a view on to the market if you can. But be warned: this isn’t a spacious venue, and it’s very popular. All Federation food is made right here, with sweet and savoury baked goods to the fore. Not complicated, but not expensive. The espresso beans are roasted at a nearby market unit, and the house blend is a high roast that will take kindly to milk in a cappuccino or flat white. Add friendly service, the real neighbourhood atmosphere, and you have a great local coffee haven.
Federation Coffee Units 77-78, Brixton Village Market, Coldharbour Lane
