Great ambience, fun vintage-style decor. Excellent choices on and the brunch menu. Great food, delicious. Efficient service. Prices for some items a bit high e.g. £9.50 for pancakes! They were delicious but I couldn't see why they were priced so high.

Will definitely return!

Built by the public as an artistic project, Canvas & Cream is a charming community hub in Forest Hill. Combining a café, restaurant, therapy room and art gallery, this quirky, vintage-style hideaway is alive with creativity.

Options such as roasted rabbit loin with blackberry jus, forest mushroom, potato cake and shredded savoy comprise the Canvas & Cream menu, which changes seasonally. Passion fruit daiquiri panna cotta is just one of the tempting puddings, and sinful aperitifs include the gin-based Roseberry Ruin. For lunch, lighter options such as squid with sesame teriyaki and leeks are on offer.

Canvas & Cream in South London boasts a laidback café, serving delights like gluten-free banana bread, and an array of English and American breakfast goods. Wander the art gallery, or treat yourself to a therapy session.

A community-based restaurant complete with garden for summertime dining, Canvas & Cream is just a 1-minute walk from Forest Hill Station.

    Cute place with quirky furnishings and a local, relaxed atmosphere - the service was friendly and our brunch was absolutely delicious.

    Lovely quirky restaurant, the service was a bit slow, but luckily we were not in a rush....The burgers were amazing, and I will definitely be back to sample some cocktails! It's a pity that it doesn't stay open later in the evenings....

    Really enjoyed atmosphere and food good. Service was a bit slow but restaurant was really busy.

    We came at 11am on Saturday for brunch. The food was excellent - we had kedgeree and halloumi with avocado and egg. Perfectly poached eggs and nice sourdough toast. The flat white was also great. Lovely ambience to the room and liked the quirky decor. I would definitely come again, and hopefully sample one of the very enticing cakes next time.
