Last weekend my boyfriend Patrick & I decided to sample the delights of Ben's Canteen on St John's Hill, London.
Advertised as the place on the hill, Ben's Canteen serves brunch, dinner & drinks 7 days a week. We opted for brunch having heard that it's seriously yummy.

A few days ago after a blustery outdoors workout I was craving a big mug of mint tea to warm up & headed to LPQ to re-fuel. My workout buddy was going for their spelt toast with homemade jam & whilst I wasn't planning on ordering any food I couldn't resist this gem when I saw it on the menu. ..
Last Saturday feeling pretty exhausted after a very early start at work, an evening out of the house unwinding with drinks & good food was much needed.
Honest Burgers in Brixton Village has long been on my list of restaurants to visit. I've tried to go a few times before but have always been put off by the huge lunchtime queues. As it was still well before the evening rush I thought we might get lucky & squeeze in before the hordes of burger lovers descended...
