The Archie Parker coffee shop and sandwich bar was, as these things often are, a dream turned into reality. We looked long and hard for just the right location for a sandwich bar that also served great coffee, and when this beaten up old property on Dartmouth Road in Forest Hill came up, we jumped on it. The renovations took four months of blood, sweat, tears and coffee, and it couldn’t have been done without the aid of friends and family alike.
What we wanted to do was to provide a great range of sandwiches, served on a variety of breads – something for everyone and a price for all budgets. We tried several local suppliers of breads and cakes before settling for two great local companies based in south East London providing top quality produce.
