Sideways Deli Cafe, Dulwich Hill

Good food, great choc-hazelnut cake, lovely service, all you want in a local cafe

This was an unexpected delight for many reasons. I sat down to a table with an old friend I was catching up with, and was greeted by the waitress - who was a girl I went to high school with! This girl and her sister own this excellent local cafe - I'd be very happy to call this my local if I lived in Dulwich Hill.

Second delight was the food. I got to try my friend's Corn Fritters with Haloumi, which was a fantastic combination with a tomato relish (I love tomato relish). I ordered the Lamb Moussaka (coz I was starving), a warm, hearty dish with a satisfyingly, creamy bechamel. I'm not usually a big fan of thyme, but in this moussaka, it was actually really good!

The highlight of the meal was the Chocolate Hazelnut Cake. I closed my eyes in delight when I took the first bite. I think I'll be back.
