London's best park cafés
The edible pleasures of the London park
The art deco Lido Cafe within Brockwell Park is a total joy and even more so since Lily Ferguson-Maher took over the kitchen. The sourcing of ingredients is impeccable and the menu offers plenty of creative ideas, breakfast through lunch. How delicious does banana bread French toast with cinnamon butter and maple syrup sound for brunch? Or heritage tomatoes with labneh or sobresada and egg on toast ? Other menu options might include cardamom confit duck and harissa mackerel, plus scrumptious Gelupo ices. Post-swim in the lido, there are plenty of super-healthy options too including a sensational grains, salad and seed bowls.
Check for supper club details and 'Lido Later' when Lily offers a street food menu plus there's lounging in a deckchair over cocktails, wood-fired aromatherapy sauna, specially curated soundtracks and a swim.
