Jammed onto the side of an architectural practice in Southwark, this serene Aussie-style café-restaurant is something of a quiet classic in this part of town. Throughout the week, the standard breakfast menu (lotsa eggs and avocado, as you’d expect) is bolstered by waffles and pancakes, plus brunch favourites such as sweetcorn fritters or strawberry French toast. Lunchtime (well, 11.30am) sees the arrival of burgers, fish and chips, bavette steaks, sizeable salads and ham-hock hash with bubble ‘n’ squeak. From 5pm Monday to Friday, The Table also has its own ‘urban garden’ where you can chill out with cocktails, prosecco, G&Ts, wines and light bites (mushroom ‘super sliders’, pork and black pudding sausage rolls etc). In short, a perfect respite from the hordes at Tate Modern.
