This is my local café. I usually go for the mini breakfast, or just coffee and one of the many cakes on display. The highlight of the mini breakfast is the old Henry sausage. The cakes include passion fruit cake carrot cake, lemon and rosmary drizzle cake, stem ginger cake and guinness chocolate brownie - all delicious. It is really... More

I met a friend for a coffee Milestone Café on the crossroads at East Sheen. The welcome was friendly and service was efficient. The café is pleasant and the food looked good. I usually go to Rosa down the road but she was shut for the Summer holiday. I am glad we tried out Milestone but I think I will... More

Decided to stop in here to kill some time today and I was curious about this place, as I've been walking past this cafe for a few years. Lovely and humble establishment with great and healthy choices of food and drink. Today, I opted for a freshly made glass of 'Kickstarter' juice, consisting of apples, carrots, veg and ginger. I...

... Both times for a simple cappuccino and croissant. The coffee was poor: too milky and bitter. The croissant both times were stale and chewy. I will try again for proper food because it looked tasty but if you want a Danish and coffee then move along!

So creamy and comes with great bread. Milestone - a cornerstone in the Sheen indie café culture. Love the ambiance. I only wish the opening times would stretch longer into the evening.

I am a frequent visitor now. Everyone is good. Extremely nice, efficient staff. Daily specials invariably imaginative and better than most retsurants of this type. Excellent coffee, and good selection of interesting cakes. Worth a detour

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighbourhood Profile
Clerkenwell
Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site of an ancient meat market which remains in operation today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough time wondering through the area's maze of streets and you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky models passing between Clerkenwell's handful of fashion houses. Far outnumbering the models are craftspeople and designers, many of them are more than happy to welcome visitors into their studios and showrooms.
