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.

there's such a great energy about the place- it's got great presence for quite a small place- and it still fits in 19 tables. Excellent coffee, amazing food- try the smashed avocado with salmon and ask for the cheeky extra of cows curd too. Banana loaf warmed with butter, a perfect sweet treat! Great staff and it's relaxed too.
Friendly staff, excellent coffee and a must-have every time I'm in the area (great weekend brunch too)
Best coffee in London, coming from a connoiseur. they really care about the quality of the coffee and food they serve. friendly and cool staff, lovely atmosphere inside and out, the best place in Brixton to chill and people watch with a latte or a flat white 🙂 Favourite place in Brixton by far
Coffee and cakes are very good but the service let's this place down, a little slow. Nice atmosphere in the village.
One member of staff was so cocky and arrogant, it has made us feel very unwelcome. For the first time in my life have I left half of my coffee, because it was undrinkable. Normally I would approach the staff when something is wrong (having worked as a manager in deli in the past) but taking the character of the barista I didn't wanted to create embarrassment for my company. The food was nice, but the coffee was the worst I have tastes in my life. Burned bitterness combined with sour milk ???Thank you but no thank you.
Great little place for catching a quick coffee in the morning even on the weekend. Its exceptionally made & service is on the whole friendly. They also know their coffee. Other cakes ok.
I'm here at least once a week. The coffee is the best I've had in London, the staff friendly and helpful, a great loyalty scheme, lovely pastries and food and a new delicious brunch menu. Keep it up federation!
Staff have a bad attitude. I have tried this establishment three times, each time served by surly staff. Will not be making a fourth appearance.
Just experienced the worst customer service... I ordered a mocha, the waiter brought over a latte but called it a mocha. So after a couple of sips decided it wasn't a mocha so took it the waiter to ask for a mocha. Then the coffee shop owner came out and told me he wouldn't make me another coffee as I'd drank from it. How else would I know it wasn't a mocha! So he refused to serve me and was extremely rude stating he was the coffee shop owner repeatedly. He created a very bad scene in front of all the customers that were shocked. Besides this bad experience, the coffee wasn't great anyway!
I love popping in here to have an ANZAC biscuit and the best flat white south of the river. Ka pai guys!
The best coffee in SW by far. Flat whites you keep coming back for. Great cakes and food to nibble on.
