We popped in the new Deptford High Street cafe Deli-X on Saturday. It's where the Bear Space cafe used to be. The space has been opened up, with the delicatessen stuff at the front along with beautifully displayed fruit and veg, and the main seating area behind some book shelving, stretching out to the back doors which open onto patio garden as before.
We had tea and cakes – the tea was served in fine china with a tea pot, which seems to be all the rage these days. Teapots are a big feature at Deptford's other two new cafes: Come The Revolution on New Cross Road and Blossoming Together at the foot of Tanner's Hill (previously the Deptford Deli). We also had some very good coffee – to rival that of the presently undisputed favourite coffee meisters The Waiting Room.
