A bit of a throwback today, as I have just rediscovered these shots I took at Lerryns – a great little independent cafe in Peckham – a year or so ago. Back when I lived South of the river. I actually love these shots and think they rightfully deserve their own blog post!
London is absolutely jam packed with alternative and independent shops, but Lerryns really stands out. It’s not just interesting and quirky (I remember spending the night once with a bunch of friends at a Hog dog, donut and BYOB party!). But it is totally welcoming, friendly and not arrogant in anyway.
A great little place to hang out, eat great food (think sourdough bread and smashed avocados) and enjoy a tasty coffee. (And London IS full of coffee addicts, myself included, so yeah. Coffee.)
The decor is awesome, I love these pastel shades, mismatched tiles and the shelves of cacti and climbing wall plants. The atmosphere feels chilled with a bit of an edge. The garden is small, but pretty, with makeshift flower pots decorating the walls. And Lerryn herself is lovely too!
Based in South London, in Peckham, Lerryns Cafe is pretty easy to reach – a 10 minute or so walk from Peckham Rye Station. And there are plenty of things do close by, including the incredibly cheap Peckham Plex Cinema! Since I moved North, I’ve totally forgotten how cool this area is! Time to revisit I think..
And time for me get shooting small, independent businesses again!
So, I’d love to hear about YOUR favourite, local, indie cafe in London (or further afield!) Maybe I’ll go exploring..
