The Gardens is a relatively new cafe that opened at the beginning of the year opposite Peckham rye park. Its a lovely cafe with lots of glass and has a boutique feel about it, lots of space and a room out the back that is baby/child friendly with toys etc. Because of this its full of yummy mummys from the Dulwhich/Peckham areas during the day, having coffee and cake. Today I sampled its Polenta and pear cake which was a combination I havent had before, as lovely as the space is I am not sure the same compliments can be bestowed upon its GF cake! On the plus side it was very moist but too sickly sweet for my tastes, Jools agreed.
The Gardens cafe therefore gets 6/10 for its Pear and Polenta cake
