Isla Ray is a cafe/bar situated on Deptford High Street. A simple yet delicious brunch/lunch menu is served during the day and a taco menu in the evening, along with coffee, cocktails, wine & local beer.
You can relax within the “open house” retro, tropical vibes & get lost amongst the brightly coloured plant-filled interiors.
Isla Ray is also a platform for creatives. With art exhibitions, bench space to work remotely, live music and decks for small music events. With private hire available you could also have the opportunity to use the space freely.
It’s a comfortable and casual place to hang out no matter the time or occasion.

Specialising in collage, contemporary artist Edie Baker creates new narratives from predominantly ephemeral images sourced from magazines, books or those discarded on the street.
Larger works are created by digitally printing previously treated images onto stretched canvasses which are then embellished with shapes, patterns and forms that enhance or detract from certain areas of the original.
Working with more traditional art materials… pencil, paint and inks etc to those more commonly associated with textiles…fabrics, threads and yarn, her work aims to bridge the gap between the arts and craft.
Content is often brutally cut or edited, resulting in final pieces that speak more of what is absent, rather than that which is present. This treatment leads to work that is sometimes awkward, sometimes humorous, sometimes provocative but almost always surreal.
Exploring ways in which we read, understand and respond to images, the work aims to allow room for the viewer to conjure up their own personal narrative beyond the boundaries of the visual presentation in front of them.
