A review of The Electric Elephant

186a Crampton Street, Camberwell, London, SE17 3AE

There are times in life when emergency cake is called for and The Electric Elephant was there for my sister and I on one such occasion recently.  Although they usually close around 5pm, the weather was nice and they still had a few customers so obliged us by staying open an extra hour.

My sister works in Elephant and Castle and had come across the place with her colleagues. Knowing I'm always on the prowl for new material (and rarely manage to branch out from east London), it was the perfect recommendation for after-work, pre-dinner, tea and brownies.

The cakes are homemade (there was also a rustic looking bread pudding), there's pastries, and a full lunch menu including soup, sarnies and paninis in the day time.

The cafe backs onto a really pretty little yard and there's some outside seating if you want to catch a few rays. What a little gem.

The Electric Elephant has a website.
