Federation Coffee is where you go when you want good coffee close to Brixton Market. It’s cosy without being pokey, and it’s always full of people hanging out and doing things like talking with other humans with eye contact (they don’t have Wi-Fi). The food’s good in a casual, avocado and eggs kind of way – try the ricotta and salmon on toast, which is a nice change from the usual rotation of brunch dishes.
