Southfields Tube is the best bet for non-drivers who think watching people bat balls back and forth is a balanced person's way of passing the day. The station doesn't rank highly on the glamour scale, but round the corner is this respectable if unsexy cake shop. Based in a conservatory extension with frilled blinds, the fare consists of icing-heavy cakes, patisserie, bagels and sandwiches. Also a range of hot stuff like pasta and pies: they open in the evening for dinner. Open from 9.30am (8.30am on Saturdays) - the sugar content of the pastries would probably appeal to children.
