Hello Sunday is a delightful cafe set in one of Sydenhams oldest two buildings. It has been lovingly restored by owners Jonathan Spark, Yasmeen Clark and Chris Penny. Drawing from its previous incarnations as an old Post Office then Sunday School to the old wooden church that it sits beside. We are a cafe serving restaurant quality fresh food, we proudly have the Conscious Consumers badge of approval and take real pride in caring for our staff and for our customers. We have 5 seating areas indoor and outdoor all with their own atmosphere. Night dinning is a shared affair with a wonderful Tapas menu, yummy cocktail list and quality wines and Craft beers. Hello Sunday, where you get to feel a little of the old style, relaxed Sunday everyday.
