Last week my work colleague introduced me to this gorgeous little eatry in Streatham, South London. Native Hop is an ever so cute cafe/shop that sells ‘homemade food’ fresh from their native kitchen. Serving dishes such as rice and spicy veg stew (which I sampled), paninis, salads, a mouth watering selection of fruit cakes and beverages like smoothies, juices and herbal tea, Native Hop may be tiny but it shows that natural healthy food does not have to be bland. What sets the venue apart is the cosiness but coolness of the decor which has a store downstairs as well as a bijou eating spot with a small round table and seat. Just the place for you to chill out with a mate for a leisurely afternoon tea. Great food and drink complete with a cool decor, I think it would be safe to say that Native Hop is one of South London’s secrets. So the next time you are in Streatham, make sure you hop in.
You can find the Native Hop on 241 Streatham High Road, London SW16 6EN.
