Wood is good. Making stuff is good too and London Reclaimed celebrates this by teaching young people joinery skills. Little Lumberjack is full of their work: all those tables and chairs, and the shelves too. In fact, Lumberjack likes all things crafty – you can buy the hand-printed tea towels the staff use and the ceramic mugs, which are all made locally. No wonder the place has been such a hit with students from the local art college. Mums and freelancers like the calming atmosphere, too.

The craft ethos extends to the coffee, from Peckham’s Old Spike Roastery, which makes a mean flat white. Teas are from Good & Proper, with fancy cakes from Cat Food London. The brief list of eats also includes soup, sandwiches and toast made with The Bread Factory bakes. We love it here, although we do end up humming Monty Python’s Lumberjack Song every time we visit.

I am normally not that excited about those hipster, bright coffee shops growing like mushrooms all around South East London. Having said that I have to admit I do like Lumberjack, which belongs to this category. 

Firstly, because of the really good coffee and tasty cakes, and secondly, as it is peaceful enough that I can work there on the weekends. They could stay open a little bit longer which the only con in my opinion. 

I love it! It's quiet therefore perfect to have a cup of coffee alone while reading a book or doing something on your laptop. The white walls along with the wooden furniture make the place so peaceful and relaxing. Serves good coffee and tasty pastry.
