Melrose & Morgan
A kind of one-stop shop for all things local, Melrose and Morgan is both a grocery shop and a kitchen. Sixty percent of food is made by their in-house team of chefs. The shop itself is really satisfying in terms of its presentation. Try not to buy everything.

St Helen's Cafe & Deli
***Closed. Liam. 02/18*** This small and cosy local spot is well known by those in the loop that is London, W10. Every neighbourhood has a St Helen's: that go-to for cured meats, cheeses and chutneys; that place that remains under the radar no matter how good the goodies and goods. Whether you're looking to stock up your own kitchen or you fancy a cheeky dabble in the cafe - salads, homemade cakes and hot bakes to be had here - it's worth swinging by St Helen's if you're in the area. If the sun's shinin' then be sure to grab a seat out front.
The Detox Kitchen
Your mum always said eating your greens would make you strong. Think how proud she’d be of your trip to Detox Kitchen. It has the answers to all your healthy breakfast, brunch or lunch needs, serving up fresh, nutritious dishes plus some seriously colourful juices. We enjoyed the 'pure goodness' - with apple, celery, cucumber, mint, spinach and lemon. Who says you need wheat, dairy and refined sugar to have fun?
***Permanently Closed*** After the runaway success of her (now closed) deli in Brixton Market and two cookery books, Rosie Lovell has amassed quite the following. Her fans were no doubt delighted when the plucky cook set up shop on Peckham Rye with the imaginatively named Rosie's - an indie cafe partially funded through crowdsourcing. Homely and inviting, this charming little spot sees locals pile in for breakfast, brunch, or an afternoon coffee. A chorizo ciabatta with a fried egg and green mayo should kick start your day nicely, whilst a mouthwatering grilled cheese and kimchi sandwich will certainly do for lunch. If all that proves too rich, why don't you go for a nice, cleansing smoothie - followed by one of her famous scotch eggs, of course.
This inviting little deli is a Brockley classic, and it's no secret why: the posh produce, scrummy baked goods, and airy space combo is a winning one. Their stock of quality wines, cheese, jams, etc. is perfect if you're looking for a gift to bring to a dinner party (wow, you're so grown up), or if you want to feel extra fancy yourself. You can also pop in for a coffee, croissant, and leisurely read over the paper.
