This place is small, comfortable and inviting. Owner operated - it has charm because it is unique. As a new resident to Penge, I stopped to have a capuccino with homemade lemon drizzle cake (which was delicious) and was greeted warmly and since gone back a few times. Friendly service, a place where the locals drop by (all ages) to have that neighbourly chat over coffee and cake.

Thank June R

Every time I have been to Blue Belle the owner has been so warm and friendly. She makes each breakfast to order and it is delicious - I recommend the Blue Belle Hash!

When my husband died the proprietor was only too happy to set aside a space for my relatives without a deposit. Opens on Sundays. So ideal for before and after worship if not against your beliefs. Just as well because they did not use it. I thanked and apologized for the no show. And she was fine about it. We had a couple of breakfasts their at a reasonable price. The boiled eggs were down to order. The hash breakfast was my least favorite. The
bread absolutely the bet I have ever tasted. February on a wet Wednesday morning before the snow was my last visit. I would highly recommend Erica and Blue Belle. For somewhere to eat at a reasonably price without a greasy spoon.

A brunch arrangement with a friend, a booking made just a few days ago - but freshly cooked and cosy surroundings.

A friendly cafe which serves good coffee but appears to have erratic opening hours.
Haven't tried the breakfasts but the cakes are very good.
