New shops on Kirkdale

Two new shops open/opening that I thought I’d flag up in case people don’t commonly head that way: - Icy Cakes 🧁 is open as of today and specialises in cupcakes, traybakes, cakes and also have a small selection other things on the menu (eg: patties, sandwiches). Only a small place so more takeaway t...

Re: New shop opening?

Apologies - somehow missed that in the thread - I guess there may be the possibility that the whole area is “number 56” and the shop may still stand as a shop (being as you have not seen a change in use and the residence may just be the area behind the shop)

Re: New shop opening?

Great! Thanks for letting us know-sometimes old shop signs are only revealed for a matter of hours before being covered up again/replaced,so I popped down this morning to have a look and take some photos.Yes, it's 'Treble Clef' (formerly 'The Record Forum') Sydenham's premier record shop of the 197...

Re: New shop opening?

No idea but would be good/nice to know! A small restaurant I think would work perfectly on the high street - wishful thinking but a small Thai, Tapas, Mexican or other would be amazing. The corner St Christopher’s and the large double unit opposite Pure Gym both have change of license applications (...

Re: Sydenham Estate agents

We used property world twice - to initially buy into Sydenham and then to sell our old place and to get a larger place. In the end they were very honest with us and the place we wanted to buy which they had on the market didn’t work out because the person (after a while) they said wasn’t mentally re...

Re: Kirkdale Costcutters

I was under the impression it was a mix of not knowing how a bra is meant to fit/sit/support the body in the best way as well as different makes have different sizes even for the same fit - something which does happen across male and female clothes but to a far far larger extent for women from what ...

It’s the place in FH that has moved (presumably to expand and/or take advantage of cheaper rent per square foot)

Re: Dog friendly cafes in Sydenham or Forest Hill

Archie Parker in FH definitely is (and does pretty banging coffee and daily deals) as is (bit our way for you) Kent House coffee and flower shop I’m almost* sure which does great great cake, has a nice quiet upstairs room and is run by a really friendly guy. Definitely also seen dogs in the moustach...

New small coffee shop inside Dragonfly Yoga

Opening Saturday just inside Dragonfly - supplied by Roar Snack Company - my guess would be coffee alongside fresh juices and healthy snacks (imagine may include protein balls and vegan things amongst the usual?) but just guessing! Quite a big calm space so may be a good spot for a cheeky quiet bit ...

Re: Library closed / under new management

Library has re-opened under V22 management and already have a new twitter account and presumably are going to try and promote the library and it’s resources/classes more whilst perhaps patching it up or adding new things. The twitter account for anyone interested is @LibrarySe26

Re: What’s going on at x?

Unfortunately I also think maybe it’s done - 5 weeks or so since it was last open and no responses when I’ve emailed/tweeted them. Always really enjoyed William’s chat, the cakes and they did some of the best coffee in sydenham in my opinion. Real shame if it is finished as the inside looked a lot b...

Library closed / under new management

Have taken the liberty of copying and pasting this from another forum just in case anyone is planning to go to library and are not aware: After this Saturday, Sydenham Library will be closed for 2 weeks for a long–overdue assessment of the interior, to plan solutions to longstanding issues of leakin...

Re: What’s going on at x?

And now some new windows/works being done inside the former Calabash of culture... hopefully some of these places have someone actively moving in?! (Rather than the landlord just doing it up a bit to make it a more attractive but nothing doing - which would still be some nice forward progress)

What’s going on at x?

Just being a bit of a nosey parker to be honest but noticed 3 different places having some renovations of sorts and wondered if anyone knew what was happening. Guess could just be the owner jazzing it up to try and rent out rather than someone actively taking over a unit... 1. Next to Zigghys Cafe 2...
