Frank’s Cafe is the flagship architectural commission of Bold Tendencies, Peckham, and opened in 2008. As well as the spectacular city skyline, note the pillowy clouds floating in the biggest expanse of blue in south London. Photos: Stephen Emms

The structure was designed by Practice Architecture (Paloma Gormley and Lettice Drake) so you can admire the view while queuing for a negroni: a snip at £6 (as it always has been). There’s a full bar and an above-standard food menu with plates like sardines with tomato (£7.50) as well as daily specials. Photo: SE
