Recommendation by Lemi
Bookmongers has been around much longer than most of its neighbors, its laid-back atmosphere surviving the changing times for over two decades. It hasn’t been easy, but regulars are always comforted by the shop’s presence on Coldharbour Lane. Overflowing bookshelves carrying various genres and a beat-up couch invite locals to stay awhile. Hang out with the resident dog, Rosa, or strike up a conversation with Bookmonger’s owner, Patrick Kelly. He knows as much about Brixton as the stock on his shelves.
