Perfect Blend is located opposite Streatham Hill Station on the Streatham High Road. Perfect blend opened in 2005 in it's current location but was previously located on the opposite side of the road for many years. Today Perfect blend is a fully licensed Café, Bar and Restaurant and to many residents, is just the sort of place that Streatham needed.

One of the first things I noticed upon entering Perfect Blend are the chairs underneath the extended canopy, which offers shade from sun and other elements. It was explained to me that they have just had new doors fitted that slide open, allowing for an al fresco style experience inside.

Inside, the venue is separated into two halves with non-smoking near the entrance and Food counter, while smoking is permitted near the bar, which also serves a good selection of cocktails made to your taste. Perfect Blend has great modern decor with good attention to details. Please note the 'I love Streatham' T-shirts that are on display and sold for £10 each. Other distinguishing features include Air Conditioning, a great view overlooking Streatham High Road.  

Atmosphere

Perfect Blend has a good balance with it being popular with locals as well as attracting an element of passing trade. We were certainly made to feel welcome by the regulars who all spoke highly of Perfect Blend.
