The wonderfully eccentric Lavish Habit is one of only a handful of places in southwest London serving Monmouth coffee well. The cafe is stuffed to the gills with all sorts of stuff for sale, from jewellery to furniture and seems to cater towards Balham's cool and calm ladies. There is plenty of light and an intimate outdoor patio to the rear. This is as good a place as any in London to laze about, drink coffee, watch the locals and let time pass.
