The Lido Café
Dulwich Road, London SE24 0PA
This light and airy café is part of the beautiful 1930s South London Open Air Lido swimming pool setting.
The Lido Café is open for breakfast, brunch, lunch & dinner. With its relaxed and chilled atmospheres, floor to ceiling windows overlooking the refreshing pool and its gorgeous pool-side outdoor terrace, you wouldn’t be blamed for thinking you’re on holiday in the South of France (on a warm sunny day of course!)
The interiors are sleek and simple (stylish wooden benches and white designer chairs) lots of potted palms and some lovely differently sized and brightly coloured pompoms dangling from the ceiling.
The menu rotates on a monthly basis offering seasonal British produce from the classic breakfast menu, such as eggs benedict/Royal and various fry-up options etc. light lunches (Soups or sandwiches) and delicious dinner options such as charcuterie platters, grilled fish or duck options, amongst others.
If you don’t want to eat you can just pop in for a coffee and a piece of cake and if you don’t want to do any of that, there always a swim!
The lido offers a little slice of the continent right on the doorstep and is a lovely place to relax, maybe read a paper and let the world ‘swim’ by!
