Underdog scoops Brockley coffee award

Someone who likes coffee far more than us has gone to a lot of trouble to score and review the area's many cafes on the basis of the lattes they serve.

As Brockley Central is half-kiwi it can say with some authority that New Zealanders attach a ludicrous amount of importance to coffee. They also tend to believe that NZ coffee is the best in the world (sorry Italy). But Toothfish has made a vital contribution to the sum of Brockley knowledge and for that, we should all be thankful.

We feel a little bit guilty about the result as the winner has been sorely overlooked by this blog - but you're all just as bad - not one positive remark about it in any of your comments! Matchbox suffers an image problem, no doubt because it a) hides under the stairs on Platform 2 like a trapdoor spider b) offers you nowhere to sit and c) is on the station itself and is therefore disregarded by some as being a corporate sell out to The Man. None of these is its fault, but life's tough sometimes. It appears as if we should all give it a fair shot from now on.

Congratulations Toothfish, Brockley is in your debt.

I wonder if he ever found his way to CafeBlanca - down the Crofton Park end of Brockley Rd, near the Rivoli? To my mind the best coffee round about. (Mind you I am not a latte person, more expresso or macchiato, cos am a bit funny about milk, so I can't vouch for the latte!). So few people seem to know about this place.

Cafeblanca is lovely, though I go for the mint tea and shisha pipes.

Why isn't there a coffee stall at St. John's I wonder. Ooh if only I had lots of spare cash - I'd set one up myself. As well as a gallery/wine bar in coulgate street and a gastrokitchen in the Talbot.

ps i only discovered cafeblanca recently - agree, the coffee is great - though I was nearly killed by its strength.

ANYONE HAVE NEWS ON THE WESTSIDE CAFE? I NOTICED NAYLOR FRIEND HAD TAKEN THEIR SIGNAGE DOWN. IS THIS IS A 'SIGN' THAT THINGS ARE ABOUT TO HAPPEN?
CAT MAN? KNOW ANYTHING?
