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.

(((** 19 February 2018 by Maud Thompson from London
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.

Very enjoyable Sunday brunch on a snowy day to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Food was good. Only query was from a vegetarian in our party who was not sure that avocado and baked beans went together too well. Otherwise very pleasant.

Great tapas menu. The food was good and all the staff very friendly. The dishes appeared in ones or twos, instead of all together usually happens, but that allowed us to savour each as it came. We waited a while at the end for the pork stew, which then failed to materialise. However, after apologies, we were offered free coffees. The offer at the moment is 6 tapas plus 2 drinks for 2 for £40-well worth it!
