I am very happy that we have discovered Mbare Clapham. The owner was most welcoming and great to see his enthusiasm for his cuisine. The burrata was delicious as was the fresh pasta. I feel I am a bit of a Panna Cotta expert and one was first class. Even more exciting were the amazing cocktails! Mbare is well worth a visit. I will return very soon.

My second time back! The cacio e pepe was as good as I remembered (and continued to dream about). The cocktails were amazing, just like last time. The service was brilliant. We tried a few more dishes, but the highlight was definitely the tiramisu. Please, please no matter how full up you are, please make room for their tiramisu.

I’m so happy to have MBARE so close to my house. No need to trek to London Bridge and queue forever for good pasta anymore. The ambience is amazing, the service is perfect, the cacio e pepe is better than Padella’s and their cocktails are not to be missed. Go here!

Excellent pasta and interesting, creative cocktails.

My friends and I had a lovely brunch at MBARE on Sunday. The environment is great, friendly, slightly ethnic, the music not too loud, we had a lovely conversation without raising in any way our voices.
This coffee place is spotless: cups, mugs, cutlery, everything very clean, you can perceive the care the owners have for their shop.
The food is lovely, presented in a delightful way and served in less than 10 minutes.
The coffee was nice, and the barista offers several milk options (try the oat milk cappuccino and you will be pleasantly surprised by the oat milk foam).
The service is worth 5 stars: quick, nice and friendly, at one's disposal.

We will definitely come back.
