❤ Welcome to dalhousie ❤

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!

Chic and stylish venue and incredible cakes

I love this recently opened cafe and visit it frequently. The decor is brilliant and the updtairs section is so cozy and stylish, a real treat on a lazy day, with good reading material nearby and very comfy and trendy furniture. I LOVE the cakes, the maker is often in the cafe and his cakes are really brilliant.
