About us

Brick House is an award-winning sourdough bakery and café with branches in East Dulwich and Peckham. Our menus are seasonal and have a breakfast, brunch and lunch focus, and we work with only the best seasonal ingredients from suppliers including Neal’s Yard Dairy, Swaledale and Natoora. Alongside our excellent bread and pastries that the on-site bakery produces, the kitchen makes as much as possible from scratch including stocks, jams, pickles, chutneys and charcuterie.
