SquareMeal Review of Rosie's Deli Café

Rosie Lovell’s seven-year-old Brixton Market set-up is a lesson in charm & character. Located amid the blaring reggae & halal butchers of the frenetic market, her deli-café is a little oasis of calm. Behind the counter, beside pinned-up artwork from regulars’ children, the spritely young Lovell pours the coffee. Nearby, fresh produce & jars of pickles are on display. In the dining area, funky media types mix with dreadlocked rastas over a sausage sarnie at breakfast, or perhaps a pecorino, artichoke & spinach ciabatta at lunch. Quiches, tarts, sandwiches, salads & cakes change daily, with many of the recipes featuring on Lovell’s blog. The site closes in the late afternoon, but as with any self-respecting food blogger, Lovell now runs regular supper clubs as well.

Have eaten a few times now for supposed convenience and have given up. Expensive sandwiches, they don't taste of much and v slow service means it's a restaurant style wait. Avoid.

I recently lunched at Rosie's – a very quirky little place in Brixton market. I had high expectations given its reputation and was alas disappointed. The food was mediocre at best – there was almost no filling in my sandwich and the cakes were very poor despite looking great. The cupcake I had was dry, and the topping tasted of nothing but icing sugar – all in all, not very pleasant. A simple lunch of sandwich plus cake plus drink was over £10, and at that price, I expected better. Overall, a real shame given the atmosphere of the venue.
