Lot's of opportunities around at the moment! This, Degustacion, Elle's Kitchen (assume that is still vacant?), the Honor Oak Gallery, it's an entrepreneur's playground.

Yes, an exciting year in which the retail/consumer offer locally will - all being well - be renewed and refreshed.

this just makes me sad -- I like a fancy schmancy cafe as much as the next person, but i also like the fact that Glenn, patron of the current Ladywell Fields cafe is a REALLY nice bloke who somehow manages to sell a cuppa and a piece of his wife's tasty homemade cake for about 1 pound fifty. OK so his coffee is ho hum, but there are so many places nearby to get a propper java if that is your thing (Oscar's, Le Delice -- and they are already on the point of being a threat to each other). Something a bit more basic in the mix is nice for the folks who use the park and playgrounds who sometimes need to buy a round for a load of kids or parents and would quite like change from 20 quid.

I hear you sister. Not everyone wants to pay 3 quid for a cup of coffee.


Far too many coffee snobs in Brockley.

I expect to pay £3 for a good cup coffee.
Not that dish water they serve as coffee in the local greasy spoons! Yuck!

Instant coffee and hot water/milk. Not gourmet but hardly dishwater...

Well, that Pistachios franchise company seems to have set the standard for cafes in suburban London Parks. I don't think they have ever been accused of being gourmet anything. Just simple food and drink, nothing fancy. They concentrate on getting all the other issues to do with a running a cafe in a London park right.

Yes, I'd admit I can't really remember what they charge in Hilly Fields, but I don't recall it being aimed at the "coffee snobs" end of the market. They also sell cups of tea and slices of cake - admittedly probably not £1.50 all-in, but then it's a cafe with seating, rather than a tea hut.

The Hilly Fields cafe is nice and not too dear.


Although I would like chips. Mmm

Sara said...

Pistachios are really variable -- hilly fields one: fab coffee, fab cake, on the pricey side (esp the cake), but very nicey. manor house one: pedestrian coffee (notwithstanding that it is made from beans), quotidian cake, still pricey, and plagued by pigeons inside (ew). Glenn's coffee is made from beans not instant by the way, but his heart is in the chips, its true ;)
