Restaurants in SE5: Best Places To Eat In Camberwell


An update post on where to eat in Camberwell is long due! And as part of my ‘support your locals’ I’ve been trying out more and more places located between Loughborough Junction and St Giles’ Church.

Today I’m sharing some of my favourite places to eat, drink and feast in Camberwell!

Best Places For Coffee & Lunch/Brunch in Camberwell 

Lumberjack Camberwell

The folks at Lumberjack do make a mean latte and their lunch offer (quiches, sandwiches and salads) are pretty brilliant too.

Get your well-earned caffeine kick at Irene Bakery & Cafe and you’ll find it impossible to turn down one of their must-have cakes and a loaf of their bread.

Momotu is the new kid on the block: bringing delicious build-your-own poke bowls to Camberwell.

Whether it’s a quick coffee or juice alongside delicious breakfast or lunch goodies, Lovewalk is the place to go.

If Lovewalk is busy, head down to Brunchies, who serve some of the best breakfasts in Camberwell and have an outdoor back garden.

gladwell's camberwell

Gladwell’s is a deli, grocery store and a wine vault all located in a beautiful former Grade II listed bank building. If you’re looking for lunch to-go, try their moreish smoked salmon and cream cheese or egg salad bagels.

Another deli in Camberwell is Grove Lane Deli – located in the former The Hill Bakery and offers a wide range of pastries and cakes made in-house, as well as coffee and a little deli section for you to stock up on organic essentials.

Grove House Tavern hosts Mondo Sando, which does the best sub sandwiches in London and has quickly become a local favourite in Camberwell. The ever-changing menu varies but is inspired by flavours of the world and always includes a top-notch vegetarian option too. If you like your subs light and crispy, filled to bursting with mouthwatering ingredients, and all wrapped up so you don’t spill too much, then this is the place for you.

Heading towards Brixton, you’ve got the slick coffee experts at Four Boroughs, the cosy workspace and pastries of Caya and superb food/coffee offerings of Annapurna.

Sunday Roast in Camberwell

On Sundays Grove House Tavern serves up delicious Sunday Roasts with a Mondo Twist – including crispy fennel seed roasties, miso hispi cabbage and their signature gravy. You can’t go wrong with any of the mains here, but the winner for me has to be the pecorino spiked sage and onion stuffing balls … or is it the local sourdough with the house umami butter that you’ll want the recipe for immediately?
