If you’re passionate about the simple pleasure of good food Wimbledon’s, Light on the Common is likely to be making its way on to your favourites list pretty soon. Opened in 2010, Light on the Common quickly earned a reputation as a local foodie hub, the sort of place you won’t be ashamed to eat breakfast at and then pop back later for supper, the sort of place where you’ll spend leisurely Sundays over brunch and the papers, and the sort of place that you’ll keep coming back to year after year. A cosmopolitan hive of laid back activity, Light on the Common could be in any European city – Paris, Berlin, Madrid – such is its chic exposed brick and dove grey panelled interior with daily specials written in neatly casual hand on blackboards, oversized mirrors and contemporary monochrome photographic prints propped against walls. The family friendly venue provides something for everybody from full English breakfasts to full a la carte bistro dinners.

We visited Light Cafe on the recommendation of a diner more organised than me, i.e. the one who would book a table for the insanely busy Saturday lunch trade in WImbledon... she said it was the best place in the village.
I can't claim that's true, as I haven't eaten everywhere in the village (and I do like the burgers in the giant pub round the corner....), but we had a lovely meal.
