Where do North Dulwich locals go?


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...

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!

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.


Great pizzas, pasta and fresh fish!


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

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 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.

The Lido Cafe

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

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.

Brixton Village Grill

A cheap and cheerful breakfast in trendy Brixton Village. This restaurant also serves lunch and dinner.
