Bonnington café, Vauxhall’s hidden retreat

Daniel Eamer, Senior Lettings Negotiator for our Battersea and Nine Elms office provides his recommendation of a quiet little retreat in Vauxhall, Bonnington Café. 

After having just finished a viewing at local new development and successfully receiving an agreeable offer I decided to pop to Bonnington Square to the appropriately named Bonnington café. This little retreat is set away from the metropolis of Vauxhall and is decorated with quirky art in the garden square, offering peace and serenity in an otherwise industrious and nonstop area.

Sipping on my coffee and eating a huge portion of pasta bolognaise, I start chatting to my neighbour on the bench outside enjoying the sun, and it turns out she is waiting for an agent to value her property.  Realising an opportunity is literally sitting opposite me I ask if we can help!

She never thought CBRE would be interested in her cute one bedroom garden flat round the corner. After a successful impromptu market appraisal, we started our viewings straight away and receive competing bids the very next day. A great lesson learned to be welcoming and talkative.
