“Another good place for a coffee and a cake. It's also a restaurant although I've not had a meal here.”
  • 7 locals recommend
Cocktail Bar
$$
“The Exhibition Rooms continues to offer a winning combination bang in the heart of the Crystal Palace triangle. It’s a venue that can satisfy a number of criteria depending on when you go. For lunch, this leafy brasserie with lime green walls and light streaming in through sash windows is a relaxed choice for a smart yet unpretentious meal. In the evening, with large glittering chandeliers and soft lighting, it takes on a cosy, intimate feel. The downstairs bar, all leather and velvet in reds and purples, has a DJ at the weekends and a decked beer garden. On our lunchtime visit, the food was as reliable as ever, with a menu offering smart brasserie dishes alongside gastro favourites. Tender duck with a rich jus and crisp rösti was skilfully prepared and well presented. No less effort was given to the ‘signature’ burger, a satisfying stack laden with quality beef and accompanied by a tangy onion chutney. ”

Flea Market
“If like me you love all things vintage, you will love browsing around the many antique shops. Where you may find that special treasure you didn't really need. The market is set in the rooms of a quaint, old, rickety house full of glass and ceramics ornaments, collectables, jewellery, clothes, furniture and more. Happy hunting! Situated in trendy Crystal Palace where you can stop off for a coffee or bit to eat at the many eateries. Opening: Fri, Sat 10.30 am- 5 pm & Sun 11.00 am - 5 pm. Directions : Bus 322 or 10 mins walk Food Market - Haynes Lane: Sat 10-3 pm Offering a range of health, organic and specialist food produce. ”
