Cake and coffee heaven in the heart of Crystal Palace. We look forward to seeing you soon! Derek and the Dalhousie Team.
Cake is for sharing, for treating, for special occasions and for the every day. I use local ingredients such as Marriage’s flour, free range eggs and Wilkin’s ‘Tiptree’ jam. I never take short cuts!
At Dalhousie we believe that great cake should be married to fine coffee and outstanding tea. We’re delighted to be working with Union Roastery for our coffee. They are proud to support independent coffee growers, share our belief that quality comes first, and are passionate about every aspect of what they do. Our teas are from Jing’s, based down the road in Brixton. They live and breathe tea, scouring the world for the best planters.
Booked in advance. Our afternoon teas are prepared to order to ensure the best, freshest experience so we need to know when you are coming! Afternoon tea at Dalhousie consists of a plain scone and a fruit scone with jam and clotted cream each; a selection of savoury filled mini brioches including smoked salmon with cream cheese and dill; classic egg and cress; English smoked ham and sharp cheddar, plus a selection of Dalhousie favourite cakes. There’s unlimited Jing’s loose leaf tea of your choice. £21.50 per person, booking in advance. Or £23.50 per person with a glass of prosecco. Gluten free is available for a n extra charge of £3.00

An intensely flavoured chocolate sponge cake with chocolate cream filling/frosting. Evil – but that’s a good thing right?
Scrumptiously moist and satisfying carrot cake
