The Brockley Deli is the most daring new opening since The Broca chanced its arm on Coulgate Street. An unlovely (though handy) mini-market has been completely transformed, and with it, Brockley Cross.
We've only had time to stick our head in and take this photos, so can't comment on the quality or range of food, but the place was buzzing already and they have pulled off what once seemed the impossible - bringing cafe culture to the pavements of Brockley Cross. It was only a couple of years ago that Brockley Cross was a crime, litter and traffic-cloggedmess. A little investment in the pavements, some proper policing and a dollop of chutzpah from a local entrepreneur and the effect is stunning.
