Looking for a place to meet some mates, and then realised that I am incredibly ignorant of greasy spoons in the area (what, BD ignorant? I hear the readers ask). Would be interested in your faves.

You will also fing this of interest although as no search facilities could not tract down old pics of SE23:

the westbourne cafe on the corner of Westbourne Drive and the south circ is always very well attended. They do roast dinners as well as the usual greasy spoon menu.

As I live just down the road from the same (Westbourne) I can heartily recommend it. Nice people, clean and generous portions.

We also had some builders in for a while and they preferred 2T's (now just simply T's I think) across the road next to the Coop. I think the preference had something to do with the football team one/other supported, but it too seemed to be well regarded.

The Westbourne Cafe is excellent value for money, the breakfasts are huge!

There is also one just past Question Bar which has a green front (cant remember the name) which also does excellent hangover food, or just a nice cheap meal.

Thanks guys. What about Honor Oak Park and onto Crofton Park?

The one down from the Co-op next to Crofton Pk does a reasonable bacon sandwich. I've never stopped for the full English. As for Honor Oak, I would recommend the smart place with the black awnings on Brockley Rise. It's not a greasy spoon but does a good breakfast at a reasonable price and they use better ingredients, eg sausages with actual meat in.
