A damn fine proper greasy spoon with great value breakfasty goodness including very good vegetable-based sausages (as opposed to Quorn etc) and the nicest omelettes - giant fluffy things! It's very down to earth and unpretentious, which I love, and when I lived on Lordship Lane I was a very regular customer here particularly after a heavy night of drinking.
There are a lot of good breakfast places in the area, but if you'd rather not pay £7.50 for breakfast or £2.90 for a glass of OJ the Dulwich Cafe is by far the best place to come, with prices around the £3.50-£4 mark for a good portion.
I don't know what the meaty dishes are like but for veggies it's the best non-greasy greasy spoon around, though do mind out - the tables and chairs are attached somehow and possibly bolted to the floor, which doesn't help with the whole hungover and trying not to fall over thing.
Dulwich cafe does a range of fry-ups and sandwiches along with tea, coffee, OJ, hot chocolate etc. Perfect for Saturday and Sunday mornings, the food will leave you full until dinner (especially if you go for the fullest breakfast options). It has been around now for a long time and seems to be standing up well to the trend of older places being replaced by the new and pretentious. This is a what-you-see-is-what-you-get place, and what you get is pretty good.
