Built by the public as an artistic project, Canvas & Cream is a charming community hub in Forest Hill. Combining a café, restaurant, events space, therapy room and home to C&C Gallery, this quirky, vintage-style hideaway is alive with creativity.
Proper cooked breakfasts from Full English through to vegan share the menu with favourites such as thick maple syrup pancakes, smoked haddock kedgeree, and eggs Benedict or Florentine. Brunch is served all day but popular lunch choices include homemade spiced chickpea burgers with sweet pickled red cabbage, crunchy spiced teriyaki squid, fresh falafel wrap or The Canvas & Cream beef burger. The meat is supplied by The Artisan Butchers in Peckham, fish responsibly sourced by Southbank Fresh Fish and fresh vegetables by Greens of New Convent Garden.
Canvas & Cream in South London boasts a laidback café, serving delights from Japanese Cherry Flower Green Tea & Fresh Ground Monmouth Coffee to Meantime Pale Ale & excellent made to order cocktails. 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.

Easy online booking. Pleasant interior, art gallery on the back. Very busy on weekends with local families. There is a adequate brunch menu, a limited (light) lunch menu and basic kids bruch menu. Overall plenty of choices. Food was quite good, chai was really nice, I expected the same with the cakes but I felt all three of them I tried were slightly dry/overbaked and a bit boring-couldn't really taste the flavour of the main ingredient. I suspect it was one of those unlucky days as I have been there before and cakes were much better. Prices were reasonable. We will certainly fine it another go when we're back at the Horniman.

We had such a pleasant time at Canvas and Cream. Really nice location - and the garden is beautiful. We had burgers, only cheese was missing.

A great place for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. Nice atmosphere, dog friendly. And good for vegetarians.

Lovely atmosphere. Staff are pleasant, helpful and friendly. Sunday lunch was perfect except my guests would have liked vegetarian gravy with their veggie roast lunch. Very reasonably priced. This is a local restaurant I will return to.

The atmosphere, the décor and the food are excellent at this restaurant. However, the service was very slow.

Been several times before and it's usually good but this was the worst so far. It was Saturday at 11am and so it was quite busy but the welcome was far from warm. After 15 minutes of being seated I had to ask for menus. It was well over half an hour before we got drinks and over an hour before we got food. Will think twice about going here again at this time.
