The Light CafeIf you're passionate about the simple pleasure of good food Wimbledon's, The Light Caf? is likely to be making its way on to your favourites list pretty soon. Opened in 2010, The Light Caf? quickly earned a reputation as a local foodie hub, the sort of place you won't be ashamed to eat breakfast at and then pop back later for supper, the sort of place where you'll spend leisurely Sundays over brunch and the papers, and the sort of place that you'll keep coming back to year after year. A cosmopolitan hive of laid back activity, The Light Caf? could be in any European city - Paris, Berlin, Madrid - such is its chic exposed brick and dove grey panelled interior with daily specials written in neatly casual hand on blackboards, oversized mirrors and contemporary monochrome photographic prints propped against walls. The family friendly Light Caf? provides something for everybody from full English breakfasts to full a la carte bistro dinners.
