Right on Petersham Park, sunny, nice service with good fare. Just need to get over the bland music selection that pumps like an 80s drag disco all day long. Unless you live for the top pop 1000, you'd find better audio ambiance elsewhere. Hey managers,...More

This had been recommended as a good spot for lunch while in Lewisham. It’s right opposite Petersham Park with no other shops nearby. We were lucky to get a table. The salads we had were fresh and flavoursome. Saw other meals which looked delicious and...More

Been a while since I’ve been here and thought I’d go back. Used to be a really great place for a meal and they also did nighttime monthly events. Anyway this time seemed unusually quiet for a Saturday morning. Sat down and waited. And waited....More
