Great, they opened.

The Coffee should lure people over ( weather's pretty bad today ) It's the one thing I almost see a queue for at Brockley Market.

I won't be able to try the place til the weekend.

Well - I went in today and had the chocolate and Guinness cake and I can say that it was absolutely delicious. Really nice cafe and a great addition to the area. I will be back.

I went in for lunch today and I loved it, will definitely be going back. I had quiche and salad and it was delicious. Then I had a piece of carrot cake, which was really lovely. The coffee was also great.

I was all prepared to make allowances for it being their first day, but everything was perfect for me. We're so lucky to have so many places nearby these days.

Nice ambience, liked the music and the retro style. Very relaxed. A bit smaller than I expected, fills up fast.

The coffee and cake was excellent. That Dark Fluid coffee is up there with Browns for taste.

Looking forward to a fuller menu as things get going.

A nice addition to the area.

The meat is clearly in your skull.

dunno yet but the chorizo eggs on toast was huge...

the hat is misleading, nice folk and down to earth.

'prejudice'
That's why I get more than you Biff

Probably the best coffee this side of Brockley. Plus, they sell Dark Fluid coffee beans for those who want to prolong the pleasure at home.

We *heart*- pastries from our fave baker, big portions (agreed re scramble- looked huge!) nice light space. Also a source of inspiration, ALL toast in our house now comes with cream cheese, honey & cinammon... IMO very fairly priced, it does however have a parent friendly vibe whilst being a squeeze for buggies & punters to fit so am sure the trolls will find something to get their teeth into THERE.

What on earth do you mean?

You speak as if it is already a colony of emetic urchins and their pompous parents!

What a great addition to the area. Delicious food and the best choc Guinness cake I've ever had. Very reasonably priced too!

HOP said...

What's an emetic urchin? Scratches head.
I mean, it is a tight space, if there are children they will be overheard by the next table, you just know that is going to get the Anons going, more's the pity

You will know what an emetic urchin is when they are sick all over or throw food about.

HOP said...

Nah, an emetic is something which causes one to chunder so the metaphor is misplaced.
Thanks all the same for illustrating my point.
