|The Dynamo on Putney Bridge Road|
As a former New Yorker, I'm a big fan of brunch... It's one of my favorite things to do on the weekends whether it's alone, with my husband or a time to catch up with friends. When I first moved to Putney over 5 years ago, I often complained that there weren't enough places in the neighborhood for a good breakfast or brunch. Sure, there's an English breakfast or a Sunday roast at nearly every pub, but it's not quite the same. Five years later, it feels like I blinked and loads of wonderful places popped up. London is growing and changing almost faster than I can keep up with it, but I am not complaining. My most recent brunch adventures have been at a new cafe in Putney called The Dynamo.
The Dynamo is all about cycling, offering racks for cyclists to stash their bikes. They even sell inner-tubes and snacks for the road like energy balls and Cliff Bars. Though it's not an exclusive cyclist cafe (I'm no cyclist for sure), you'll see a fair amount of riders decked out in their spandex and helmets, ready to hit the open road after refueling at The Dynamo.

I've now been to The Dynamo twice and it's a very affordable option for Southwest Londoners who brunch. Offering a wide range of breakfast and brunch options from granola to eggs and hash, the coffee is hot, the bloody mary's are cold and the food is delicious. Breakfast is served until 3pm, which is great on weekends. I for one struggle to cook breakfast on the weekends because I'm tired and hungry when I wake up, so I love a great place to refuel while I read or have a chat.

Freshly made juices and a bar are also on offer. I also spied a selection of what looked like craft beers among the usual suspects. In the afternoon, one might opt for the wide variety of pizzas, salads and other Italian treats on offer. I'll be honest, no matter what time of day, I struggle with choosing between pizza or eggs... Yum!
