The Evening Standard of March 10 gave a round up of delights along the East London line now that it’s been extended as far as Highbury & Inlington. Sydenham is hailed as a fully paid-up member of the cafe society.
Though mainly residential, Sydenham’s café scene is on the up. The recently opened, Norwegian-run Blue Mountain Cafe (121 Sydenham Road, SE26) is a stylish deli-type stop-off selling organic lemonade and doorstep sandwiches, while Kente Coffee House (16 Sydenham Road) is the place to go to for a round of smoked salmon and cucumber sandwiches and a ginger beer in the café’s back garden. If it’s culture you want, head to one of The Dolphin pub’s garden parties (121 Sydenham Road, thedolphinsydenham.com) and tuck into a lemon posset.
