SquareMeal Review of
The Brockley Mess
An art gallery, bar & café (with inexpensive breakfasts & lunches, plus a small garden out back), the Brockley Mess is what every suburban high street needs. It’s a funky, colourful little
spot, with floor-to-ceiling archive shots of nearby Lewisham College, old school furniture & polished concrete flooring. At breakfast, there’s a full English or burritos for the ravenous, &
light, fluffy French toast with proper maple syrup & fruit for a snack. Lunchtime sandwiches, salads & pies are supplemented by hot daily specials. Cakes are made on the premises, including
the Brockley Mess: a delightful mix of dark chocolate brownie, vanilla ice cream & raspberry coulis. Tea is loose leaf, & there’s a short wine list & local beers to boot. Exhibitions at
the gallery change every six weeks.
