It’s high time that this blog made some explicit recommendations. Other than telling you that the staff were sweet, you probably want to know where we had meals that were really great, or err kind of disastrous.
Buenos Ares Cafe. The joy of Buenos Ares is the chilled atmosphere which is quite an achievement in squashed up Greenwich. There are no out and out cake winners, but their approach to savoury platters is fabulous… and usually too much for one person to eat:
Peyton and Byrne. I really don’t want this to be my favourite coffee shop, but I have to say its produce is flawlessly excellent with exciting attention to detail. I’ve been here twice. This was my first visit http://wp.me/p5fONJ-hc and this was the visit where I realised how great it really was. http://wp.me/p5fONJ-jr
And the Scullery in Blackheath Standard, oh what great coffee, what simple but wonderful cakes. http://wp.me/p5fONJ-gd
On the subject of cake, pretty decent cakes can be found at Rhubarb in Lewisham’s Glass Mill, otherwise known as the Lewisham’s swimming pool. http://wp.me/p5fONJ-eKYes really.
Gail’s Bakery, now I am writing this review with Gail’s having newly opened, and it’s impressive and exciting shop front could just be prejudicing me, but for now, ain’t it great? If the shine wears off, I’ll be sure to update you. http://wp.me/p5fONJ-jJ
And for restaurants
Buenos Ares restaurant. Do you notice a common theme here?
Bianco 43. Interestingly this review provoked reaction amongst people who have not enjoyed their pizzas, but I have to say I am a fan. I have been there whilst known to be a local food blogger, and also more anonymously, but each time I have had a fantastic time. http://wp.me/p5fONJ-cn
Chapters. Again. I really wanted to hate Chapters.. http://wp.me/p5fONJ-2A
The Hill, at the bottom of the Royal Hill is a real gem. Excellent food, both sweet and savoury.
Huge disappointments included Jamie’s Italian http://wp.me/p5fONJ-fP and Cau http://wp.me/p5fONJ-g2 The former in particular should have no excuse. After all, we have particularly enjoyed visits to other Jamie ventures such as Barbecoa in New Change http://wp.me/p5fONJ-2X
