Cafe Florence - London Camberwell & Gourmet Burger Kitchen - London East Dulwich

One Saturday morning (in the middle of December) I decided to do a food crawl, well lunch and a dessert, or the other way around actually, a dessert then a lunch. I had seen this little cafe called Cafe Florence that just opened before I went on holiday, and I said to myself I must try it out when I come back! And I did.

It was after 11.30-ish when I got there, and it was raining too. I had seen the cakes outside before, and I really wanted to try out the cakes!!
Outside Cafe Florence
I had a seat whilst I waiting for my food and noticed that the place was owned by an Italian couple with another helper... hence the name Florence!! ^_^
Inside Cafe Florence
I ordered a strawberry tarte, a chai latte and a piece of chocolate cake! I looked so greedy, heheh. It's food. I didn't eat breakfast!! The chai latte was very good, it didn't need sugar in it. The crust on the strawberry tarte was hard to get through as it was stuck to the foil, but I did like it. And the chocolate cake was the surprise. It tasted like a jaffa cake with marmalade / orange jam layered in between the icing and the cake... Oh it was delicious!! I want more!!

All three together

A proper close up of the cake!!
Cafe Florence does serve paninis and hot food, so I definitely need to go back there to try out the hot food!!

Total price was around £6 (I forgot the total!!). But awfully cheap for all three items. I thought I was going to be charged at least for £7.50... Very good!

My geeky rating: 4.5/5

Good points:
- Friendly service
- Good cakes and my chai latte was good

Bad points:
- Unfortunately the seating is a bit squishy, so I guess go early when no one is around!
- I had the spaghetti bolognese 2 weeks later... it was so-so... Needed seasoning, but the cakes were still very good!!

Address: 116 Denmark Hill, Camberwell SE5
(I think it opens around 7 or 8 am and closes around 5pm)




Next off was to walk back into the rain, cross the road and go to East Dulwich. I had been dying for an American style burger for weeks or days. One or the other.  So I went to Gourmet Burger Kitchen. It has been a while since I have been to this place... quite a few years... Forgot to take a pic of the outside!!

I ordered for myself a Speedy Joe burger. This was ok. Not the best burger in the world. But I enjoyed it.

I had skinny fries thinking I would be less full by looking at it... I was wrong.

I needed a salad to help me digest.

And I asked for truffle mayonnaise sauce... yummy!!

Well, service was a bit too Americanized for me, but it was ok, Food on the other hand was too much after a big dessert!! Heheheh.

I forgot the total price, but it came up to around £16 or £17

My geeky rating: 4/5

Good points:
- Ok food
- Ok service
- Spacious seating layout

Bad points:
- Expensive for a burger, fries, drink and a salad. I think I can find cheaper! Maybe... ¬,¬"
