Browns Of Brockley, SE4 2RW

Small cafe/coffee bar opposite Brockley Station. It opened in late 2009 on the site formerly occupied by Dandelion Blue.

Note: Browns was refurbished in early 2013 (see photo) and we've only paid a very brief visit since. They're also no longer open in the evenings, and hence we're not sure if they still serve alcohol.

Kake and Sarah visited on a Monday evening in November 2011. When we arrived shortly after 5pm there were already several people in, a fair few of them with laptops. The upstairs was mostly full but there was still some room in the basement. The resident pug was wandering around during our visit, which made Sarah rather happy. Music was playing, not too loud.

We had a few glasses of wine (served in water glasses) as well as a bread/cheese/meat platter photo and a couple of extra-large sausage rolls photo. It was all good quality, the cheese was a very generous portion, and they were happy to give us a refill on the bread. They told us that they source their cheese from a place in Peckham and their bread from Tottenham, and they make their own butter (it was indeed good butter).

Accessibility: A step to get in. Toilet not checked post-refurb (pre-refurb, it was in the basement down a flight of stairs with a handrail only partway down). Most of the ground-floor seating is on high stools.
