Fred's cafe opened today on Brockley Road. Closer in spirit and menu to somewhere like Oscar's in Ladywell than nearby Arlo & Moe or Benedict's, it should nicely complement Crofton Park's increasingly impressive range of cafes, bars and restaurants.
Inside and outside at Fred's
Fred's stress their family-friendliness (picking a side in the local culture war) and have made smart use of their small garden. Those pining Pat-a-cake's, which this replaces, will be heartened to know that cake is front and centre on the menu - along with delicious flatbread sandwiches.
