This really is the best cafe in the area, they serve amazing tea/coffee and do a wonderful brunch menu. It has a great atmosphere and has really lifted the feeling in the Hither Green area. To top it off the staff are warm, friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome what more could you ask for?!
We seem to be spoilt for choice now in 'The Green' for lovely coffee shops, not that I'm complaining in the slightest, and The Cafe of Good Hope sure is one of them, located on the 'Lewisham side' of Hither Green - just a short walk from the train station. What's even better is the coffee shop is owned by the Jimmy Mizen foundation, so it's a community focused and driven organisation too so you really are making a difference.
There is always a great atmosphere in here with a lovely mix of clientele and there's even a garden and play area for children - it's very family friendly. The food and drink it delicious - I can recommend the coffee; latte; ham and cheese toasties and numerous selections of cakes - yum! The staff are really friendly; polite and welcoming too so you really cannot fault the place!
Hither Green is a fantastic, fast-growing location of young professionals and commuters - I love living here! - and The Cafe of Good Hope is a brilliant advert for it!
We're getting a bit spoilt for choice with cafes and coffee shops in "The Green", and the Cafe of Good Hope is a charming addition.
Light and spacious, yet still cosy and quaint, the cafe has a friendly vibe, and the fact that all the profits go to such a good cause - the Jimmy Mizen Foundation - is lovely.
It's worth paying a vist to support the Foundation, of-course, but you won't be disappointed by the yummy treats on offer. Soups, pastries, great coffee and - seriously - the BEST Victoria sponge I've ever eaten, with the butteriest butter icing I've ever tasted.
Can't wait to see the garden makeover!
What an excellent street cafe!
We were looking for a Sunday Breakfast that wasn't necessarily a fry-up; a place that offered good ingredients and tastes but was it possible in and around Catford?
I'm not too sure the Barista really understood how to make a Cortado but the coffee was a like a strong Latte.
I chose Bacon and Halloumi with Rocket and Chilli Jam Sandwich which I loved and haven't as yet managed to recreate.
We sat on the street which was fine.
It is a little pricier but you get waht you pay for and this seems a nice place.
I had a coffee here and i really enjoy it. The staff are very nice
and friendly, they serve quick and with smile, as it should be. The
Cafe is owned by a some foundation and while you are drinking your
coffee you fell like you are doing good. Coffee of good hope is one
of my places.
