SquareMeal Review of Social Pantry Café

Best known as a go-to caterer for corporate and social events across London and the Home Counties, Social Pantry also runs a lovely little café in Lavender Hill. Zingy fresh salads, crusty sandwiches, seasonal soups, savouries and freshly made pastries are tempting offers from the display counter, but the place also delivers hit-the-spot fill-ups.  Start the day with a bowl of warming porridge with banana, honey and nuts, a full English or Social Pantry mixed beans in Cajun tomato sauce on sourdough. Otherwise drop by later for smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, baked mushrooms and spinach in parsley and mascarpone sauce or something from the daily specials board. Weekend brunch depends heavily on meats from Ginger Pig, while Union Coffee and Bad Boys Bakery supply other essentials. Unlicensed, but smoothies and fresh juices are squeezed and whizzed to order if you need a healthy fix. And if you want a picnic hamper, they can arrange that too (order in advance).
