Time Out says

Tart occupies one of the primmest of prime locations, facing Clapham Common and between the tube station and Clapham Old Town. As such it has an uninterrupted flow of commuters, coffee seekers, yummy mummies and self-employed flâneurs passing by its portals every day. The window display of tarts is appealing: not quite quiches, definitely not pies, but high-sided tarts with savoury fillings. Our chorizo and roasted pepper tart, and the rather more unusual pear and Parma ham, both had pleasingly firm pastry and were freshly made. The accompanying salads (£8.50 for the combo) also showed more imagination than usual with flavour explosions such as black rice and mango or roast beetroot with orange. But where this café may disappoint is the lack of variety and choice: if you don't want a tart and salad, you'd better go to one of Clapham's many other good cafés.

The location of tart could not be any better, facing out onto Clapham Common. Staff always very friendly and foods although tart based, very tasty. 

Really original take on classic dishes, but with tarts at the centre. The owners are so friendly.

It's a cool place to hang out, cosy but bright, in a fantastic location opposite the beautiful Clapham Common, but most of all: the Tarts are really tasty (haven't tried the salads but they certainly look good too), the mashed avocado on toasted sourdough toast yum, the coffee is ace, the staff polite and genuinely cheerful, at a price that provides for a very good value for money lunch than elsewhere in the area. And Tarts can be taken away in cute little boxes you can stick in the fridge for heating up in the oven for dinner too. We love Tart!

Gorgeous tarts, loads of unusual flavours. Great coffee and friendly service.

Great food, quality, service and experience. Thank you and definitely coming back again.

Absolutely wonderful cafe with food is to die for! Seriously, if you are ever in the area then you must visit Tart, you won't regret it :)

Love this place - the tarts are fantastic, a really relaxed feel and the staff are great too!

What a refreshing change this place is! The homemade tarts are quite simply superb, bursting with flavour and ever-so fresh. It really is an interesting concept for a café and certainly not your 'run-of-the-mill' coffee+muffin generic multinational. Like good food, like good coffee? Look no further.

Simply the best..and the atmosphere and freshly made out of this world tarts..their coffee is something else..perrrrrfect

All in the cake! Top class Breakfast/Coffee/Cake House/Place!

Great food very tasty and can also be bespoke for wierd/fussy eaters like me.

Highly recommended

Amazing food, great atmosphere, excellent quality and just an all round pleasant cafe experience.

Tart has quality, tasty eats and drinks. The owner and staff are warm and welcoming. This is overall a great place with great eats, treats...even my children love what's on offer! #mmmm#Tart

Really cute cafe and its lovely to sit outside with a blanket and watch the world go by

Excellent place. I typically have a tart with two side salads for only £9. The meal was tasty, healthy and had just the right portion size. Service was friendly and fast. Would give six stars if I could :)

Fantastic food, great coffee and lovelly staff, not to mention location!

Cute café on the edge of the common with great salads, tarts and cakes. A fave spot for coffee and catch ups with friends.

Great selection of savoury tarts to tempt you in, once in your are greeted via the friendliest members of staff who cannot do enough to help you. Top place for lunch, a quick coffee and catch up with friends in a lovely atmosphere.

Nice restaurant overlooking the Common, excellent tarts but I would say a bit pricey and could do with more quantity-wise but then it is one of those prime location Clapham places where you can never get a seat except on the bleakest of London days. 


Great location on 'The Pavement', a row of shops and cafes overlooking Clapham Common, super friendly service, delicious food…what's not to love? The insane prices, that's what! es, this is Clapham, but there are so many lovely cafes in the area (Esca, Madeleine etc) where you can get far more for your money. 

'Tarts' hardly begin to descibe the organoleptic treats the boys have created. Everything is made ( and served) with love, fabulous ingredients and imagination. Superb.

Love Tart! Blue cheese & pear tart is the best. Yummy for a picnic on the Common.

You can tell that a lot of love and care has gone into this place - the staff and owners clearly take great pride in what they do. The tarts really are great - buttery, crumbly pastry and the delicious fillings - and it's in a lovely sunny spot by the Common so nice to sit with a coffee too.

Lovely people, lovely atmosphere and lovely food!! Just a great place to stop by for breakfast or brunch.

Wonderful little gem, Was in the area to visit friends, They had a wonderful selection of tarts both savoury and sweet for us to munch our way through whilst sat on the common. stunning ingredients make wonderful tarts. Highly recommended..... i also hear the picnic hamper option is a must in the sunshine......
