Where do BR3 locals go?

Deli Nene

If you're looking for a tasty white hot chocolate whilst you get lost in a good book, a £5 English breakfast to cure your ills from the night before, a place to take the kids whilst you catch up with friends and loved ones, or a great daytime into nighttime date location, then Deli Nene is the place to go.

Kelsey Park

Although not the biggest park around, Kelsey Park is a peaceful, leafy spot with a large pond and a cafe. A great place to bring the kids, where they can run around the playground.

Coppers Restaurant

Coppers is a beautiful restaurant in an old police station. The food here is lovely and the afternoon tea with prosecco is a real treat!

Sapore Vero

Lovely little Italian restaurant with wood fire cooked pizzas! Also accept Tastecards in the week, which is a great bargain!

Mr Simms

Old fashioned sweets and American candy in abundance!

Love 'A' Slice

Cheesecakes, cream cakes and milkshakes - heaven for those with a sweet tooth!

Kelsey House

One of my favourite spots in Beckenham! A bar and restaurant with rustic, trendy interiors.

South Norwood Country Park

Like having the countryside on your doorstep, it is a great place for a bike ride or a dog walk.

Alexandra Nurseries

Fantastic independent café, home and garden centre.

The Shop Revolution Marketplace

The Shop Revolution Marketplace host lots of unique events like poetry and craft nights, with all the items they sell produced by independent designers and jewellery makers. This picture was taken at a Miss Victoria's Floral Emporium flower arranging workshop.

Church House Gardens

Beautiful gardens that form a magical setting for outdoor performances on the open-air stage and in the amphitheatre.

Cherry & Ice

A café serving delicious ice creams and milkshakes with the friendliest staff - they're so lovely and helpful and always make me feel welcome.

Sofa Bar & Kitchen

Lots of comfy cushions and great snacks in this Bromley restaurant.

The Gold Coast

Serving the best food from the motherland, Ghana! The jollof rice served with domedo (seasoned and spiced pork) is to die for... It reminds me of mummy's cooking!

Brown & Green Cafe

This charming cafe sells delicious cakes and fried breakfasts. It's a great spot to visit on a lazy Sunday afternoon or after a jog around Mayow Park!
