Please note, Peter de Wit’s Café has now closed. Time Out Food editors, September 2019.
Since the olde-worlde frontage of this cute café is just steps away from The Cutty Sark, you could be forgiven for assuming that it was engineered to pull in maximum tourists. However, Peter de Wit’s is far more interesting than that: first of all, it’s located in one of Greenwich’s oldest buildings, part of which was around when King Henry VIII was a nipper; secondly, and perhaps more importantly, it doesn’t rely on its historic credentials for custom. Instead, its menu is both timeless yet of its time, with carefully sourced local ingredients making up the delicious fried breakfasts, classic but high-quality sandwiches and daily quiches, plus Aeropress coffee from small-batch roasters, plenty of gluten-free teatime treats, and Meantime lager. The interiors, despite their age, are resolutely modern, with bright-blue chairs, white walls, and chalkboard menus – history nerds can, however, wander through to the café’s pretty courtyard to marvel at the back of the building, which dates to medieval times.
