Where do Dulwich Village locals go?

Yama Momo

Situated in the heart of East Dulwich on Lordship Lane, if you like Japanese food, you have to try Yama Momo. Great atmosphere, food and drinks!


Arguably the best kebab on Lordship Lane! It's hard to break the habit of going every day for lunch...

Le Chardon

Proper French food, an interesting 1880s Grade II listed interior and a piece of local history, as it used to be a David Greig shop. Put your handbag on the marble shelves and try the lobster, bouillabaisse or coq au vin and wash it down with a fabulous wine choice. I always have a good meal here.


Delicious Italian food in delightful Dulwich Village - the linguine comes highly recommended!

East Dulwich Picturehouse and Café

This small cinema serves everything from cakes to meals, cocktails to coffee and screens small independent films alongside Hollywood blockbusters. There are even reclining seats and 'love seats' if that's what you'd prefer...

The Bishop

A superb way to spend your evening, this newly refurbished pub in the heart of East Dulwich is the perfect place for celebrating with a cheeky champagne or two.

Off the Cuff

A wine bar with cheese, live music and cheap drinks. They also sell furniture...

Herne Hill Market

A buzzing Sunday market, right near Herne Hill Station.

The Lido Cafe

A modern British restaurant overlooking Brockwell Lido. Great for breakfast - plus lunch and dinner for that matter!

La Gastronomia

A taste of the Mediterranean, this Italian deli also has a patio garden, where you can sit and enjoy their delicious dishes.

Horniman Museum and Gardens

A quirky, free, family-friendly museum and gardens.

Brockwell Park

A great place for an early morning run, where you feel like you aren't even in London - yet you are only 10 minutes from central London on the Victoria line. There are tennis courts, a gym and a Lido too if running isn't your thing.

The Melange

A handmade chocolate shop and café that serves fantastic hot chocolate!

The Begging Bowl

Thai street food with a tapas approach - a relaxed and friendly buzz, especially on the weekend.


A lovely family-friendly café just off Bellenden Road that serves tasty homemade food.

Local resident

"For breakfast, its got to be either Toasted on Lordship Lane for great coffee and the best toast and jam or Gail's in Dulwich Village for a breakfast meeting over smoked salmon and chive pancakes."

"I recommend heading for a long walk with a coffee in Dulwich Park, then admiring the art at the Dulwich Picture Gallery before indulging in a cupcake at Le Chandelier"
