The Scullery Cafe at Blackheath Standard (formerly Gambardella's) is deffo worth a visit.
You can smell this place from Selhurst Park on a SaturdayTasty Jerk
If you are looking for a delicious barbecue pork or jerk chicken, go to Tasty Jerk on 88 Whitehorse Lane, SE25 6RG.
The meat, rice and gravy, everything was so good. You can taste those tiny angry peppers with a nice little sugary kick & smoke in the meat seasoning. I had a pork & chicken meal, and it was delicious. They've got 4 drum barbecue thingies in the shop, and one of them had tilapia fish. I will be trying tilapias next time.
I've just added salad leaves mixed in a houmous, lemon and Greek yogurt dressing and added red onion.
Looks very nice, just a shame about the breakfast policy of no swaps. I can't stand beans or tomato on a fry-up, so no swaps means a la carte wallet rapage; fuck that for a game of soldiersMy favourite local cafe here on the Isle of Dogs is "Hubbub" on Westferry Road.
It's in the back of an old chapel, the rest of the building being used as The Space, a community theatre.
Book exchange, art for sale on the walls, good food, beer and outdoor seats downstairs.
Makes a great change from the chain-owned places up at Canary Wharf.
All a few minutes from where I live too
Anyone recommend anywhere else in Clapton - I'm here now and need fry-up....Just discovered: Don's Cafe, Lower Clapton Road, E5. Cheap cheap breakfasts (with Perfect fried eggs, better than i've seen anywhere else) served buy insanely happy whistling old man, with manic accordion music playing on stereo. Looks a bit like a derelict building on outside, but feels like a bit of a haven once in. I have eccentric taste in cafes tho.
There is a greasy spoon at 79 Upper Clapton Rd and one nearer the roundabout on the corner of Brooke Rd and Upper Clapton Rd. Plus there is a Turkish place that does fry ups on Upper Clapton Road, it's the one with a little covered smoking area outside.Anyone recommend anywhere else in Clapton - I'm here now and need fry-up....
hmm, full english doesn't look 'full' enough for the price - missing an item like black pudding for exampleBit trendy/expensive, but relatively central, handy for Tate Modern Etc. Outside seating and possibly the best full English ever The Table Café | All-day cafe and hidden gem of Southbank
