|A Cat Food showstopper|
Cat Food is an on-demand service exporting amazing baking to the whole of London. Masters of their craft, they are now masters of Brockley.
A specialist business, located on Ewhurst Road, one of SE4's remoter parts, it's perhaps the most surprising winner in the award's eight year history - seeing off a highly competitive field, which included some outstanding new pubs, bars, cafes and shops. However, Cat Food has a loyal following and it's fitting that a business born with Kickstarter support from the local community should receive this accolade from the voting public.
This is only the second time a Crofton Park business has won the award, so it also helps to address an historical and geographical injustice.
