Wannabe Foodie #14: Mud, Tooting

Toot a Toot Tooting! What an amazing place, full of diversity, community, eateries, and home to some of the best brunch. Mud has become the pumping heart of many a freelancer, to those that simply fancy eggs benny with a twist. As the monosyllabic name suggests, Mud is to the point and gets you what you need…pronto.

Mud prides itself on its fantastic coffee and is what draws many people to come back again and again and again (ooohhhh I can smell the caffeine addcition from here). With Ozone supplying the goods, the double shotted wonders go to show that Mud isn’t here to play games. From the staple Long Black to their weekend ‘special drink’ you won’t be dissapointed.

Tales of the bespoke coffee grind (as well the master of all hangovers) is what initially brought me through the doors of the cafe. I went for a latte (which is a mile off my now usual – long black with oat milk) coupled with the corn fritter stack and bacon. This more than hit the spot. With the chilli jam being made in the house, this beast of a brunch was the perfect way to keep me sustained through my Sunday and guide me into my blissful nap later in the day.

Alongside the sizeable portions and hard-hitting coffee, the staff were a delight. As a small family owned joint, the love is definitely one that is transferred to how the staff make their customers feel and I was no exception to that. From the hustle and bustle of weekend brunchers to the chilled vibes of the weekday, the staff are here for their customers and will indulge you in the delights of amazing conversation as well as fabulous coffee.
