A landmark in East Sheen

The Milestone Café in East Sheen sits on the crossroads of Upper Richmond Road and Sheen Lane. It is so named because it is situated just behind an old milestone which marks 10-miles to Cornhill in the City of London. The café is a popular rest stop for locals and visitors to the area. From busy office workers grabbing a quick sarnie on their lunch break, to weary mums necking double-shot espressos; relaxed retirees whiling away the afternoon with a newspaper, or old friends having a chin-wag – the Milestone Café welcomes them all (they're a friendly bunch).

The café is lined with comfy cushioned banquets, with tables and chairs filling the floor space. There is a rack-full of magazines and newspapers if you've time to sit and browse, and plenty of highchairs and a shelf-full of toys if you have a little one in tow. The counter has a tempting range of savoury and sweet choices – including a delicious range of daily specials that are freshly made each morning.

Brunch options include a 'local butcher's full English' for £7, a toasted bagel with salmon and cream cheese for £4.50, porridge, granola, croissants, and eggs prepared in all manner of ways. For lunch you can choose from soup, sandwiches and various salads, including a super food one for £8. There are cakes aplenty on the counter if you're after a sweet treat, and drinks include teas, coffees and freshly made juices priced at £3.50 – choose from the likes of Hangover Cure, Cool as a Cucumber or No Milkshake. Check out the website for a full menu. You can also fill out an online order form – if you order before 11.30am, you can arrive at a specified time to collect your pre-prepared order.

The Milestone Café is open 7-days a week and is easily accessible due to the many buses going up and down Upper Richmond Road. Mortlake train station just a short walk away.
