Square Meal Review of The Lido Café ?

‘Halcyon blue water, fresh air and genuinely good food’ are some of the reasons why families make a beeline for this beautifully restored art-deco lido on the edge of Brockwell Park. Drop in for a restorative brunch (smoked salmon with scrambled eggs and a glass of mimosa, say) or pick from the lunchtime menu of burgers, charcuterie boards, salads, smoked haddock fishcakes and suchlike. The café also opens for supper three evenings a week, when flashier dishes such as sea trout with sorrel, Jerusalem artichoke purée and char-grilled spring onions make an appearance. Otherwise, discover the ‘sweet sanctuary’ of the refurbished bar and terrace by the oh-so-inviting pool, where you can enjoy craft beers, wines and nibbles, as well as voguish cocktails including Aperol spritz or elderflower sherbet. It’s only minutes away from Brixton’s gritty bustle but, with a Moscow mule in hand, you could be lounging at your private Seychelles villa.
