Macaron, The Pavement, Clapham, south London

Overlooking the green expanse of Clapham Common, Macaron is well placed to turn the heads of commuters walking between the tube station and Clapham Old Town. Dressed to resemble a traditional boulangerie and patisserie, Macaron has very large windows that ensure you won't miss the fine display of cakes, pastries, filled baguettes and quiches. Baked on site, the food might make a Parisian homesick. You can sit at the large communal table, one of the smaller tables or in the sun trap seats on the pavement. Macaron is a refreshing antidote to the Starbucks, Costa Coffees and chain stores just round the corner. 8/10
