Nick,can you put a post up for Lion's fried chicken next? Their twice fried chicken(I think it's chicken) wings are to die for.

Consistently one of the best restaurants in South East London. The eggs benedict is fantastic at the weekend and I can't wait for the Christmas Dinner.

Above average quality and good value. Comfy chairs and friendly, fast service.

Oh you mean the greasy spoon cafe on Brockley Road opposite the Barge.

Well they do a good traditional English Breakfast.

It's a no-nonsense caff.

Cheap and cheerful.

Everywhere needs an unpretentious down to Earth good old fashioned Caff.

No thrils and cheap as chips.

Ah good old Central Cafe, where bacon and eggs go to die.

Anon@1429, it's on the same run of shops as the Costcutter, opposite the Barge.

Been going to Central for yonks. Always, consistently the best greasy spoon in Brockley, doing what it says on the tin for good value.

Do they have proper sausages of the sort that have actually got some pork in them? Most greasy spoons don't for some reason.

A friendly, cheap, family run Caff. Don't be put off by the plastic seating or Formica table tops - if you want a cheap but tasty English breakfast or traditional roast lunch (without anything fancy extra added) then you can't do better in Brockley IMO.

The portions are large and they are happy to do discounted child sized portions.

A great place to pop in on Saturday morning after an all-nighter.

Mung and organic it ain't but if you're willing to forgo this it's a good alternative to the more up market Brockley options.

And I thought the people is Chiswick were up their own arse...

Great little cafe, nothing to be afraid of.

The perfect counterpart to Top Chef for those living closer to the station.

It's good but I prefer Mus's cafe down at Brockley Cross.

Could we have next BC drinks there?

@Ben - no, the newcomers to Brockley are getting further and further up there every day.

Had many a takeaway bacon sarnie. Above average definitely. Can't speak for the sausages though.

The sausages pass the cheapness test, they do not pass the taste test.

Not that the patrons are interesting in food for anything but refueling.

You get plastic chairs, you get formica, you queue up to place your order, the coffee is instant and the tea is 'builders'. The food is fried and full of calories. Any veg comes out of a tin or the freezer.

It is full of blokes in overalls talking sport and reading tabloids.

It is cheap and what you see is what you get.

Anyone who thinks it is some kind of wonderful gastronomic experience is being a pillock.

After a night out, a good old fry up here is the best cure for a hangover.

Anyone who thinks Brockley is all mung bean eaters and yoghurt weavers hasn't had a good ole fry up here.

Is there free wifi? So I can get on with my freelancing away from my ugly wife and in and plain view of the public.

Absolutely.

Jeremy's Wife said...

Don't encourage him with places he can squirrel himself away with his "free-lancing"... he needs to get a REAL JOB.

Jeremy's beautiful lover said...

Jez....meet you in there for a pork sausage in the morning .

Jeremy said...

Right, I'm moving back to Oxford. You can keep Wilbur and Pistachio.
