All In London Review

Sweet cafe and store full of Persian goodness,

Review Image
A space dedicated to all things Persian in Peckham? It must be Persepolis, the shop-cum-restaurant that feels like the kind of place your friend at school’s parents might own. Trading on a community vibe, not to mention all that sweet Iranian goodness, Persepolis is a place to come to stock your cupboards and then pack your tummy when the shopping hunger strikes.

Defined by its bright yellow exterior, the shop takes over most of the premises with stacks of teas, herbs, exotic and not so exotic products piled side-by-side. If there’s nobody to be found behind the till, chances are they’ll be in the café area next door, a space where cramped tables and a DIY aesthetic only seem to inspire more people to attempt to fit in. Serving wraps with fillings that change daily, meze platters, hotpot and soups, the emphasis is on no frills, home cooking - Persian style. Inexpensive and as inviting as it sounds (have I made it sound inviting?), Persepolis is the ideal place to take any friend who attempts to imply that this South London enclave is in any way inferior to rival neighbourhoods north of the river.

And there you have it, next time you need some dried sour plums, you know where to come. And don’t leave without sampling a Persian tea.
