Venue says Passionate about coffee? We hold fun, evening 'barista basic' courses each month. Find out more and book your spot via our website.

The name of this Antipodean-style café is certainly curious. Have they filled it by scouring the beach for odds and ends hurled from broken boats and shipwrecked ships? The attractive interior here suggests not - though there are bulkhead wall lights, and one large table could, perhaps, have been made from driftwood.

The food is certainly fresh. Expect dishes such as pineapple bircher muesli, smashed avocado and feta with pickled chilli, lime, mint and poached egg on rye sourdough, buttermilk pancakes and an array of cakes and pastries at the counter. There are Crosstown doughnuts, too.

Coffee is supplied by Allpress Espresso, tea by T2. These are served alongside freshly squeezed juices, Karma colas and sodas from Luscombe.

Please note, Flotsam & Jetsam does not take bookings.

A friendly Atipodean café right on the banks of Wandsworth common, about a 3 minute walk from the station. It serves great coffee and the croissants are huge! The service is excellent and I would not hesitate to go back. I like the rustic feel but also that the décor takes into account all the little details that a coffee shop needs, artisan coffee goods for sale adorn the walls and there is plenty of open brickwork.

Staff are always so friendly, food is healthy and delicious, and even when they are super busy the quality of the food and the presentation is always the same. Coffee is delicious too!

Best breakfast spot in South London. The quintessential local cafe - friendly staff who make the effort to get to know you and your favourite items on the menu, great selection of meals and excellent coffee.

Welcoming, charming, stylish, superb coffees, creative beetroot latte and the food is fresh homemade and heartwarming. It is truely an exceptional place. Make sure you get there early at the weekend as it gets busy but what else do you expect when somewhere is this good.

Flotsam & Jetsam is my fave brunch venue. Food is incredible, as is the service. I honestly can't fault it. Lovely vibe in F&J on Saturday and Sunday mornings either for a take away or a sit down. The photo on here just doesn't do it justice! F&J is my choice for brunch everytime. Try it...you won't be disappointed!

Love this cafe! Great coffee and the brunch is delicious-especially the pancakes. Service is great too and there's always a nice vibe inside (and outside on the warmer days too). Would definitely recommend!

Alasdair K

Excellent café, great food (especially the pancakes), welcoming and cheerful staff and best of all very good coffee.

Since they opened at the beginning of the year Flotsam & Jetsam has become the place for Wandsworth Common residents to brunch at the weekends, and just a stones throw away from Nappy Valley weekdays are just as popular! Dog friendly with delicious coffee and fantastic food, they can do no wrong. In summer sit outside with views of the common and come winter shelter inside the cosy cafe and let the nautical theme take you back to holidays on the beach in Cornwall. The smashed Avocado is a personal favourite of mine, but the menu offers something for everyone, so definitely give it a try! While popular you can't make reservations, but don't let this put you off, they have an effective queuing system and I've never had to wait for more than 5-10 minutes!

A lovely spot for brunch with some outside tables should the sunshine be out. My one and only complaint is the inconsistency in portion size. On my first visit I was impressed as brunch in London usually equates to a measly portion, the meal I received was on the larger size so I was left feeling suitably satisfied. On my second visit I was left wondering if my breakfast was coming in two stages as it was barely half the size as previous.
