There has always been a great selection of Chinese restaurants and takeaways, curry houses and traditional fare in Streatham but recently there has been a food revolution in Streatham. A flurry of new independent restaurants, delis, and cafes have opened over the past few of years. Five years ago it was difficult for a coffee connoisseur to find a decent cup of coffee on the Streatham High Road, to say nothing of a great cappuccino. My, but have times changed! The question is now not whether you can find one but where to choose.
