The café is situated in a historic Victorian building in this urban oasis in Wandsworth, South London, which features woodland, a lake, lido and open common land.
For generations Tooting Bec Common has been a meeting place for the people in the area. It is an excellent place to relax, admire the local wildlife or have lunch in the café. In the warmer months the common plays host to regular festivals, community events and music concerts. Part of ancient common land which used to stretch as far as Mitcham, the area is now administered by Wandsworth Council who maintain it and the adjacent Tooting Graveney Common.
The café is operated by San Remo Catering, as part of our Park Cafés group of locations in and around London. A family run business with over ten years of experience, we know how to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. We also have a fleet of vintage and modern ice-cream vans for hire and offer mobile catering for all types of event.
The café menu caters for all tastes and serves a full range of hot and cold drinks including the finest Italian coffee, handmade cakes, delicious meals and daily specials made on the premises using quality produce. We also have old favourites that are simply a must in park café, like a bacon roll on cold winters morning or a traditional scoop ice cream on a blazing hot summer's day!
Our friendly staff will be happy to serve you every day, all year round (except for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day when they are helping Santa).
During the summer, we open at 9:00 and close at 18:00. In winter, we open at 9:00 but close at 16:30 or dusk, which ever is earlier. The kitchen closes 30 minutes before these times.
We are always looking for ways to improve our offering, so if you have any ideas or suggestions for new menu items or ways we can further improve the café, please let a member of staff know during your visit. Alternatively, you can let us know by completing a short survey accessed from the 'Feedback' option in the menu bar or you can email us using the the 'Contact' option. If you are happy with your visit to the café, please tell your friends. If for any reason you are not, please tell us.
