Lordship Lane is curiously short of independent cafés where you can enjoy proper coffee & a slice of cake, or linger over a freshly prepared lunch – which makes Luca’s all the more welcome.
Nearly all the food is made on site, or sourced from high-quality local suppliers. Eggs royale includes own-made hollandaise, muffins from Luca’s West Dulwich bakery, & smoked salmon from
Moxon’s the fishmonger’s a few doors down; the excellent sausage rolls are also made here. Table service can be slow, especially in the small back garden, so it’s tempting to visit the counter to
get someone’s attention – & gaze at the day’s cakes. The cinnamon buns are what elevenses were made for. Dunk them in a flat white, made with coffee roasted at West Norwood’s Volcano Coffee

DO NOT GO HERE! I used to go to Luca's with my boyfriend on a regular basis for brunch however, my last visit was awful. I ordered the Harissa lamb with pickled pineapple cabble with cous cous for lunch and it was missing half of the ingrediants. They clearly microwaved it as the cous cous was served in huge lumps and was rock hard. There was about half a teaspoon of the cabbage! My friend ordered the buddha bowl artichoke salad which was served with... wait for it......... half an artichoke in the whole dish!!!!!! When I gave Luca this feedback at the till, he shrugged his shoulders and said "whatever, that's just your opinion" I challenged him whilst paying the full amount to ask if he was going to feed this back to the chef, his reply "no, I don't care what you say, food is fine" Very arrogant response and unfriendly. NO apologies. No compensation. Nothing. He genuinly didn't care. Very disappointed with their food, service and overall attitide, I won't be going back.
