Re: A chocolate shop for Sydenham?

I am all for one or the other. The chocolate is absolutely amazing (they opened one in Brixton last year and went to a couple of events) and they also serve decent coffee, hot chocolate and cakes etc I believe so could be more then just a chocolate shop also.. The Brixton venue was toying with late ...

Aga's little cafe

Noticed a sign saying Aga's little cafe will no longer be running as a cafe :( Not clear whether will continue to run it as something slightly limited and different (see further info below!) or whether it's just the end of its tenure as a pop-up full stop. Anyways, on a slightly happier note they ha...

Re: SYDENHAM'S POCKET PARKS

Similar to a few suggestions - how about pairing up a couple of complementary traders to take the spot for a single saturday or sunday every month (and have a rotation of pairs).. examples: Van Dough (http://www.vandough.co.uk/about/4556132941) and Late Knight Brewery (http://www.lateknightsbrewery....

Accentuate the positive perhaps?!

Re: Keen cycle nuts in Sydenham ?

Andy and Stuart - All sounds excellent.and will endeavour to get involved in a couple of weeks once settled after moving in... Think would have to have a couple of practice/longer cycles before getting onboard with the longer ones although the draw of cake and ale is a good motivator :)

Re: SYDENHAM'S POCKET PARKS

Is there any reason the market couldn't be more then monthly to make use of the spaces or is it a mix of not enough demand / the other markets that operate on a sunday meaning that monthly is the way forward? Or possibly a food market and a craft market alternating every 2 weeks? (I gather the see3 ...

Re: AGAS LITTLE CAFE: KIRKDALE

I took my parents there last month to show them the circuit or Sydenham - Kirkdale - Forest Hill and had a pretty mean sandwich (choice of avocado in place of butter was a delicious treat) and excellent coffee. Spacious and nicely decorated interior so a pretty decent spot for one and all, whether i...

Re: Change of use 98 Kirkdale ( Behind the Boxes) to takeawa

Fantastic news by all accounts I believe :) - Don't think there was a single poster who felt that a benefit would be a good addition/benefit the locale. Excellent stuff.
