Four of us went to the Dulwich Picture Gallery for breakfast on a beautiful warm sunny Sunday morning. We were lucky enough to get one of the outside tables and were able to enjoy the sun and fresh air. The service was prompt, competent and...More

Beautiful little place adjacent to the museum -- airy ambience with plenty of windows. Excellent teas and sweets. Easy place to spend an hour or so while you are visiting the Gallery.

Best ever poached eggs on sourdough. Friendly service. Didn't realise they put on a service charge as I didn't see the bill, so gave a tip! A little annoying. Otherwise, very nice food in pleasant surroundings

The café was (unsurprisingly) very busy when I arrived on a Sunday afternoon, but I was told I could take a seat outside and someone would serve me. It was cold outside, but as I was there in time to order some lunch I figured...More

We ate here part way through our visit to Dulwich Picture Gallery and what a treat we had! The smoked salmon salad and the cauliflower soup were simply divine. Hot chocolate was fairly standard, but there was nothing wrong with it. The staff were all...More

The cafe can be visited separately from the gallery and, if you are in the a tea, is worth a visit. The cakes are very good and they do a good range of drinks at reasonable (for London) prices. The lunches vary from £5 for...More

Not the fastest place in the world to get you seated - staff member completely taken up with an allergy question while others waited around. Nice coffee but service charge on a cafe experience is not on - go down the road.

My experience was that the café had very limited capacity. We were not able to make a reservation, although we understood that some parties had done so. Their food offer was equally limited. We ended up going to a nearby... More
