This cafe looks quite industrial from the outside, but do not be put off by this. I urge you to visit Oddfellows and defy you not to fall in love with the haloumi open sandwich, fresh Hummingbird coffee (the cafe is adjacent to the Hummingbird Roastery where Fairtrade organic beans are roasted and shipped to cafés around the country!) and...

I have eaten here & purchased my coffee often. Great food, great atmosphere. Fantastic coffee & food to match. The lemon curd muffins are to die for. Scones delish, black board menu varied & portion sizes filling! Great for all occasions, family, solo, business. Consistent great service & food.

I'm so used to having either a good coffee OR breakfast, but this unassuming little restaurant in light industrial Sydenham is a little gold-mine. It gets very busy, so book ahead. My omelette was perfectly cooked with a side of bread, and my friends Eggs Bene with Salmon looked amazing! I'll be back.

This little cafe is located in deepest, darkest industrial Addiington back streets. It;s lovely. The food is delicious and always beautifully fresh. It's always a good brunch choice. There's courtyard or conservatory table options as well as big recycled wood communal tables in the main cafe part. Plenty of parking on the premises is a bonus and I hear tell... More

Been here for lunch a few times now. Food is always good and generally don't have to wait too long. Coffee is always top notch.

Busy lunch time on a Monday. Had to share a table, no problem, seemed to be a bit of that happening. Crispy potato cakes for two, with bacon and portobello mushrooms, superb. Coffee awesome, ordered a second. Service efficient and friendly even though it was under pressure.

I've been to Oddfellows many times, at different times of the day, and the story is always the same - too slow! When you have to wait ten minutes for someone to hand you a pre-wrapped cold sandwich to take away it's gotten beyond a joke. The food is nice enough but it's not nice enough to waste all your...

Went here on a quiet rainy Monday, the service was basic no friendly hello or anything the girl seemed annoyed she had to get up from cleaning the fridge to serve me. The hot chocolate took ages to come out but was delicious! I had the eggs Benedict with bacon - the eggs were very underdone and made the bread... More
