Dulwich Picture Gallery Cafe

Squaremeal Review of Dulwich Picture Gallery Cafe ?

From the beautifully minimalist Gallery Café, housed in Rick Mather’s modern glass extension, diners can gaze across at Sir John Soane’s 1817 masterpiece. On bright days, the airy space is flooded with light making this a lovely spot for breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea, all served at table. From noon, the café – managed by Digby Trout, which also runs the Orangery at Kensington Palace – offers a concise menu of Mediterranean-influenced seasonal dishes: perhaps mixed mezze, niçoise salad, or pollack roasted with cherry tomatoes. A breakfast menu is served from 9am (10am at weekends), encompassing cooked options such as omelettes or a full English, as well as toast & pastries. Afternoon tea is particularly popular & includes Konditor & Cook cakes, as well as the usual finger sandwiches & scones.

Pleasant Lunch

We had a lovely lazy lunch at the DPG Cafe - staff were very friendly and we did not have to wait too long to be seated and served despite the cafe and the gallery being very busy. The food was delicious and beautifully presented and we left as two very happy customers

Its such a shame that the management at this cafe have no idea of customer service or satisfaction. It has a lovely setting and would be convenient if visiting the gallery, but one of the staff was rude and arrogant. I visited with 2 friends and enjoyed a satisfactory lunch, main courses were adequate but nothing special, quinoa overcooked, salmon portion very small, mackerel bagel perhaps the best choice on the day. When it came to dessert I had a dispute over the substitution of clotted cream with...

Lovely setting but resolutely average food. A fish pie looked promising but turned out to be microwaved. Ice cream was tasteless. Service was patchy, we had to grab the staff's attention to get more drinks, dessert, the bill. The menu looks good on paper but what you get is average at best and thus very overpriced for what it is. Very disappointing. Won't be making a return visit.
