Sitting pretty on Brixton's legendary Coldharbour Lane, this all-day bistro is the sort of place that forces you to pause and drink in its beauty. Housed in a beautiful red-brick building, The Laundry is a London landmark known for its top-notch menu and achingly cool interiors. Outside, chalkboard signs, wrought-iron railings and enormous white parasols make for sublime al fresco dining. Inside, a relaxed setting is made inviting with high ceilings, glass pendant lights, bare-brick walls, banquette seating in duck-egg green and floor-to-ceiling shelves stocked with an impressive selection of independent wines - we can thank owner Mel Brown for that one. The food? Undoubtedly the best feast of our existence. Start by ordering a couple of sharing plates - the roasted beetroot with whipped goat's cheese and honey-drenched burrata got our vote. Then, choose between three different types of mains: leek and mushroom pie, roast pork belly and a succulent sirloin. Wash it all down with an extra-large cucumber margarita and end on a sweet note with an ice-cream sandwich.
