Time Out says

This Old York Road spot is the Battersea branch of Brew - a chain of four south west London cafés, restaurants and coffee houses. The food menu, served from breakfast through to dinner, focuses on food with an Antipodean inflection.

A quaint, rustic-posh little place near to the station. This place seems to do it all: coffee, brunch, lunch, dinner, cocktails, milkshakes, smoothies, bread to take home. And friendly staff as well. I've adored everything I've tried here from the long list of various types of coffees and hot drinks, to the cakes that are to die for and the hangover-busting brunches. With such a vast menu I can’t see me getting bored of this place anytime soon. 


This street near Wandsworth town station has become my favourite with all its little brunch and wine spots. Brew is no exceptions, going in with no expectation only hoping for a decent cup of coffee after a long night, I stayed for brunch and 3 (yes 3!) flat whites they were so good! They have a deal that you can get any 2 sides for £7 and of course we went for this as well as a normal breakfast. It was a feast! so much delicious food. The staff were so lovely too. I loved this place. 


The website had me at hello, so after scanning the menu it was obvious I was going to head there for a brunch date. Everything sounded fab. The Wandsworth branch is one four south west London cafés – small inside but with scandi-style high ceilings, exposed brick walls and a light airy feel with the glass front and open door. What a shame the food didn’t live up to expectations. My iced latte was £3 and tasted solely of soya milk – bad start. I had mushrooms with pesto on sourdough toast which was just warm and mediocre on flavour. The saving grace for Brew was the chocolate brownie bites which were delicious! Nutty, rich and warm. Service was ace and there’s no rush to leave so if you like to chill after food then it’s a winner. I’ll go again but maybe try a few other things on the menu.


I was remarkably underwhelmed by this place. I hate it when they plonk the bill on the table before you've even put your cutlery down and to be the honest the food really wasn't that great either - they managed to make halloumi taste mediocre which is a real challenge. The two stars are solely based on their nice crockery.

A charming little place tucked away on Old York road. The staff are lovely and the atmosphere warm  and cosy, however the food was quite disappointing. I had the sweetcorn fritters which were unbelievably bland and the tomato jam it came with was distinctly underwhelming. Topped off with far too much rocket, this dish was a letdown- however pretty it looked. Dessert saved the experience as the the warm chocolate and hazelnut brownie bites with vanilla ice cream was really tasty. I'll try Brew again as the menu did sound rather good and there's many more things I'd like to try.
