Clapham’s about to get a stellar new Australian brunch spot.
It’s called Juliet’s Cafe & Bar, and it’s the first offshoot of Juliet’s Quality Foods in Tooting. Which itself used to be called Milk Teeth. Which itself comes from the founder of legendary brunch spot Milk in Balham. Who himself comes from Australia. We could keep going until we get to Captain Cook, but you get the idea.
It’s going to have its home in Studio Voltaire, just down the road from Clapham Common. Anyone whose been to either Juliet’s or Milk will attest to their charm & excellent food. Both are known and loved by locals as cult-brunch hangouts serving eggs benedict, mango smoothies and a complimentary side of Aussie charm… as well as a litany of all things sweet, fermented and poached.
There’s no word yet on the new Juliet’s menu, but the food will be season-led and served with the “best coffee and honest, real wines.” It’s likely Juliet’s will crossover with the signature dishes that made its big sister so famous, like their Young Betty Eel, with poached eggs on sourdough bolstered by hot smoked Devonshire eel, and draped in homemade espresso & fermented chilli hollandaise. And there’s a mighty fine roster of baked goods to go with it. If it’s possible to get a tan from food, then you’ll get if from gazing down at the incandescent sourdough bread end waffle with roast loquats, honey parfait, roast almond crumb and chestnut blossom syrup.
It’s always hard being the youngest sibling in a family renowned for its brunch-based culinary esteem, but we’re excited to see how Juliet’s lives up to its lineage.
NOTE: Juliet’s Cafe & Bar is set to open in summer ’22. Stay up to date with more details via their Instagram here.
