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!

At Dalhousie we believe that great cake should be married to fine coffee and outstanding tea. We're delighted to be working with Union Roastery for our coffee. They are proud to support independent coffee growers, share our belief that quality comes first, and are passionate about every aspect of what they do. Our teas are from Jing's, based down the road in Brixton. They live and breathe tea, scouring the world for the best planters.


We looked long and hard to find a bread supplier who shares our passion for quality, provenance and flavour. Finally we came across The Bread Factory, who bake bread with care and love. Like us, they use only the finest ingredients, such as Marriage's flour, in their range which includes tempting San Francisco sourdoughs and mouthwatering brioche.


We serve Gold Award Winning Digby Fine English sparkling, and Moor's 'Kings Orchard' pressed fruit juices from Kent.

Dalhousie is the perfect place to meet friends, relax, work in peace or just while away some of that precious time. Come in, take a seat and let us help you do just that.

I have popped into this place a couple of times now - always for take out though the interior looks great and the staff have alway been really friendly and chatty- so may think about sticking around next time.... The coffee is pretty good but the thing I really want to recommend is the sticky toffee pudding cake- it is phenomenal; beautifully light but with a really gorgeous flavour- I cannot recommend it highly enough.
