Hildreth Street: "Did someone say Milk?"
Keener for caffeine (?) in large.
It was dark and drizzly, so no-one was sitting outside the cafés on Hildreth Street: they don't quite face off across the market street, even though there are now more than four competitors (inc. H Street Deli, Brickwood, Blackbird Bakery, and Milk) staggered along the very short street. Milk serves the finest coffee (although I think 'Camden Coffee House' is Balham's best), but the atmosphere is less self-conscious at H Street Deli.
Today's café captures are on Flickr here (or right from here).
