The Brixton Vegan Walkabout--the many Vegan delights South of the River!

The Brixton Vegan Walkabout is now One Year Old! :)         Let's kick off a new year of Walkabouts as we mean to go on! Come rain or come shine, join us for great food & good people!


Welcome to The Brixton Vegan Walkabout!!

Whatever the weather, come to Brixton & explore!

Buses>>
45, 59, 109, 118, 133, 159, 250, 333

[masked]pm; We gather outside Brixton Tube Station

[masked]pm*; At Brixton Station Road for Vegan Tart, Saba's, Trina's, Taza Falafal, etc!

About 2-3pm*; wondering along to Ms Cupcake, via anywhere people fancy enroute!

3pm onwards*; Raining/cold? Off to the pub....sun shining? Brockwell Park till late... CHANGE THIS MONTH; The Dog Star are hosting the Crafty Fox market over this weekend (7th & 8th December) so it's going to be quite busy! If anyone fancies checking out the market, we can pop our heads in, but it'll be busy so I don't think we can get Vegan pizza this time, but they still have Pitfields Beer. Local pubs are a stones throw away, *The Prince Albert/The Market House*, or a 10 minute walk to Effra Social, {as recommended by Sarah Jane! :) } for something completely different!

8pm*; I'll leave around this time to go back North of the River to host Vegans Invade Intrepid Fox! ........................................................................................ 9pm*-late; I'll be hosting into the night back North of the River at Metal/Rock bar, Intrepid Fox, meeting people upstairs by the windows near the pool table or grabbing a sofa if free!

*Approximate times

So come on down to Brixton & explore!


 

<< Details >>

The Vegan Tart *BRIXTON BAKE OFF-BEST In Show & BEST Savoury 2013!!*
From Chocolate Tarts, to Lime & Thyme, from Homity Pies to Cookies or Scones, enjoy something yummy indeed inspired by the 1950's, with a dash of Twin Peaks indeed!
http://www.thevegantart.co.uk >> http://www.facebook/thevegantart

Saba's Ethiopian Stall
Enjoy the great vegan option*, of injera (pancake made with self raising flower) or rice, with lentils, mixed veg & salad!
((*non-vegan option cooked totally separately))

Ms Cupcake
With plenty of naughty cupcakes to choose from, (including lots of chocolate ganaches, with mint, coffee, hazelnut, strawberry & other flavours indeed), plus a fridge full of Vegan Ice Cream, Rice Puddings, plus savoury pastries & new Vegan sandwiches, there's lots to tempt you at Ms Cupcakes Brixton base!

Other Brixton Vegan delights....* checked/recommended-there may well be more to discover...but this is a pretty extensive list! :) *

>Trina's Delicacies, (Vegetarian & Vegan), delicate fluffy yummy Vegan brownies & cupcakes; she often has free samples to try too...well worth a try :) . ((Located near Saba's/Vegan Tart)) Web link> Trina's Delicacies

>Taza falafal (Vegan) *to the right, by the Recreation Centre Staircase*; yummy, fresh, well worth getting the large one!

>The Oracle's Organic Juice Bar; (Vegan) lovely salads & fresh juices in Brixton Village, 6th Avenue; see Sean's article here..... :) >> You can crush us | fatgayvegan

> Grande Doubles; (Under the bridge, Coldharbor Lane, off Atlantic Road, diagonally opposite The Dog Star) Smoothies and Doubles, which are a lovely bit of bread, bit like naan bread, with chickpeas, spices, with or without chilli! Here; very nice & only £2! >

>Franca Manca; (( 4 Market Row, covered market)) I've heard people rate the vegan option here- I've heard there's one vegan pizza option, then you can add toppings; little bit pricey *about £1.50 per extra topping* but a friend said she just had the plain Margareita *minus cheese indeed* with just Artichokes added, that works out a good deal & sounds nice indeed!Franco Manca - Brixton

>L'Express; (Market Row; a short walk from Ms Cupcake!) the 'greasy spoon' Express Cafe, that is 'taken over' on certain evenings, becoming a French Vegetarian & Vegan Restaurant.... nice people, yummy vegan options, well worth a look!

L'Express Cafe - London, United Kingdom - Vegetarian & Vegan ...

And Local shopping;

Holland & Barratt (Brixton Road)

Brixton Wholefoods (Atlantic Road)

Seating options >> there is some seating that may be available in the market, there is also a seating area upstairs outside the Recreation Centre, to the left; at Ms Cupcake, there is some out door seating available; also option of drinks, at the next door cafe!

After enjoying some Vegan delights, then.....

The Dog Star! *Or other local pub*....it's off to a pub around 2.30 or 3ish (it may be earlier if the weather is a bit much! Haha!!) for drinks *& after the success of the One year party, there might be Vegan Pizza; TBC* & good conversation!! :)

OR *weather permitting!*

Brockwell Park

At 3ish, if you fancy a trip to Brockwell Park, I'll head off with a little group for a couple of hours *say till about 5ish; could vary!* & meet whoever's still in the pub later on! I rather like the Walled Garden :)(Brockwell Park - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia>> At the end of Coldharbor Lane, with the main part of Brixton Road to your right, turn left passing by the Ritzy Cinema, & go up the main road, which is where Brixton Road becomes Effra Road; there are buses but it's not a long walk, roughly 10/15 minutes. Keep your eyes peeled at the road names to your left; when you see a street called Brixton Water Lane, turn left & after a short walk, the park entrance is on your right)

Intrepid Fox; Post Walkabout metal/rock bar back North of the River!

I'll leave Brixton by bus to get there for 9pm, & hang out till late! :)

So, after the success of past trips, I look forward to more trips!!
All the best, Bye for now, Jess :)

    Hello Walkabouters,
    The Dog Star is hosting the Crafty Fox Market this weekend (7th & 8th December) so it's going to be busy in there, so we'll be going to a different local pub; we can of course check out the Crafty Fox market if anyone fancies it, but for a sit down and a chat, we can go to The Prince Albert, The Market House, or, 10 minute walk to Effra Social, as recommended by Sarah Jane!! See you all soon! All the best, Jess :)

    Hi Walkabouters; It might just be my old browser or some old echoed' memory from the Meet Up dusty archives, but I saw an older 'copy' of this event appear in the main home page listings *not calendar view* that listed just me' as attending! :P I thought, where the hell has this up to date, 29 RSVP'er, disappeared to?? Phew its still here, somewhere!! *At least when I clicked on in the calendar to December!* If anyone else saw this 'ghost' of a 'copy' I deleted ages ages, ignore it....I think this one, the one I'm writing on now, still exists (!!) & I hope people see this comment post!??!! Anyway.... see you in Brixton!!! Bye for now, Jess :)

  • Margarida

    Hi, I am Margarida, I am not 100% vegan as, occasionally, I eat honey
    . I live in Streatham but I have never been to those amazing places, so I am looking forward to explore new places and meet you all.

    November 17, 2013

  • Jenn

    This looks awesome! I will be in London soon, and I'll be sure to visit all these fantastic places while there, even if it is on my own and not part of the meetup since I will be back home in the US by 07 Dec...

    November 14, 2013

    • Jessica Stella F.

      Hi Jenn, :) Thanks for your message; to catch most of the usual delights of the BVW, when you get here, check out Brixton Market on a Saturday & you'll meet Saba, Trina & others; Ms Cupcake will be open & so will the pub! The Vegan Tart only do Brixton once a month but if you can make either of the events listed on their page, check them out! http://www.theveganta...­ > Also, if you arrive pretty soon, do join us at Vegan Drinks next Thursday; http://www.meetup.com...­ :) Have a safe trip & maybe we'll meet while you're here! And do email me if you'd like to go with a bunch of Vegans to Intrepid Fox *if you fancy a metal/rock bar with a sign for the toilets to the basement that reads, 'Enter at your Own Risk' or words to that effect!!* :) All the best, Jess :)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
