Vegetarian cafés used to be austere, faintly forbidding places, but there’s nothing remotely spartan about this attractive little eaterie. A cool interior – white walls adorned with original art, stripped wooden floors and squishy leather sofas – and an imaginative and extensive menu ensure that Domali is always busy, especially at weekends, when you can expect to have to wait for a table. Mains include the likes of goat’s cheese and sweet potato pie, pan-fried salmon, or red onion and ginger dahl – and there are sandwiches for people who can’t hang around. Another big star on the menu is the ‘Deal’ veggie breakfast, which comes with vegetarian sausages and perfectly poached eggs.

I came here for brunch over the summer with the family and I loved it! We sat in the courtyard outside and enjoyed hearty portions of vegetarian breakfasts, fresh juices and iced lattes. Service was a tad slow, but no real complaints as it was a busy day. They have an amazing selection bloomer sandwiches too and the option to create your own meal essentially. They display artwork inside from local artists which is admirable. I wondered why they named the place 'Domali' and after looking on their website, found out it's simply the owners Dom and Alison put together! Perfect spot for a lazy brunch, conveniently located in Crystal Palace near the boutique shops and independent cafe's!

Child friendly, girlie catch up friendly, fresh food, great cakes and didn't even realise it was meat free for 6 months. Secret garden at the back rocks in summer for hangover brunch.

The breakfast here is so good that we come every week even though we are not Vegetarian! An absolutely fantastic restaurant.

I don't think if this is just me !!!!!??  but I didn't know if was vegetarian.... and ordered a full English, my partner was annoyed that tea was not included.. but even more annoyed when the bacon was actually .. not bacon. Its all pretty cool and its not about speedy service but relaxing. I did not see any notice which stated it was vegetarian which was a shame really. Lunch would be obvious but breakfast full English was not. Great to have a vegetarian in the area however.


Poor food, painfully slow service and an over abundance of yummy mummy types who do no active parenting puts this way down the choice of venues in the palace.


Great cafe/restaurant. Food is lovely and staff are friendly.


Great place to eat, lots of choice, from British classics to Asian style dishes, and all very tasty. Generous portions too..... fab fresh juices and great coffee if you're not eating. Highly recommended.
