Cheap eats of the week: Brick House

Written by

Hungry but strapped for cash? We've got you covered with our cheap eats of the week.

Bricks? On a menu?

Ha ha. Brick House is named after the warehouse it's based in. It's the second sourdough place to open in the area in the last year.

Sourdough. That's an east London thing.

It's catching on all over, and south of the river is rapidly becoming Sourdough Central. Brick House has been around since 2012, as a bakery in Peckham Rye. They supply shops and top restaurants.

Are loaves the only offering?

No. There's breakfast: ripe avocado on rye, granola, Nutella on toast. And soups and sandwiches for lunch. The menu tops out at £8.

And who will be there if I go?

The scene is very East Dulwich: laidback, kidfriendly, lots of 'young professionals' rinsing the free wi-fi at leisure.

Skinny jeans and a beard not required?

Absolutely not. Brick House isn't pretentious: just a homely, friendly place to munch on hearty, freshly made grub. You won't leave this place sour-faced.

THE BOTTOM LINE: A must-dough spot for Dulwich bread-heads.

Brick House is at 1 Zenoria St, SE22 8HP. East Dulwich rail. Meal for two with drinks and service: around £20
