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! ....it's off to pub around 2.30 or 3ish (it may be earlier if the weather is a bit much! Haha!!) for drinks & good conversation!! :) Plus Vegan pizza may be available again! :) 

Or; at Colharbour lane > The Prince Albert, The Market House > at Effra Road, near Brixton Water Lane, Effra Social OR at Tulse Hill, Railway Tavern *post Brockwell Park; a Spring/Summer option! :) *

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 around 6.00pm; we'll meet people under Freddy at the Dominion Theatre, for 7pm, getting to Intrepid Fox for 8.30-late!! :)

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

    Thanks Sarah Jane. I'm all the way over in West London now so I won't be able to join you today. Epic fail! I'll try to do better in Feb! Have a great day!

      Thanks Jessica. Sounds like you had a good day and mine wasn't too bad either. It was a chance to drop in at Ms Cupcake at least. I was at a walkabout with you in December so you might recognise me if you spot me again

      January 5, 2014

    • Jessica Stella F.

      Cheers; ah, December, that was a quiet/smaller one too, yeah, I may well recognize you, there was only a few of us! Although looking at my photos from the last one, they're no help, as they're mostly of Cake! :) I've also met people briefly before now & they remember me but I can't quite recall; I often say how I think my brain slightly imploded when I met 50 plus people at February 2013's Walkabout, the biggest one yet! It was great, just verging on Vegan Drinks size, a mini version, what with about 30 people hanging out at the Dog Star afterwards!! :) See you at another meet up sometime! All the best, Jess :)

  • Maddie

    Hey! Brixton station is quite busy isnt it, will you be in a particular spot/recognisable in some way?

    January 1, 2014

    • Jessica Stella F.

      You can't miss us, Dave; you know what I look like! If you arrive late, go directly to the market, & ask Saba at the Ethiopian Stall...we'll be near by...then if you're later, go directly to Ms Cupcake; we'll be there between 2ish & 3pm! After that, Dog Star! See you there!

    By the underground exit?

  • Jessica Stella F.

    Hi Walkabouters!
    Little change of plan; I'll be leaving Brixton at about 6pm, as I've brought Intrepid Fox forward to 7pm, back to the old time slot, as there's some bands on a few people have mentioned they want to check out... nothing else to add! I'm looking forward to another lovely Walkabout; wrap up, maybe bring a brolly, & see you there! All the best, Jess :)

    I am bringing a friend but can't seem to add her onto the RSVP.

    January 1, 2014

    • Jessica Stella F.

      Hi Rachel, :) ; no worries, RSVP not needed (if your computer thing is messed up or something :) ) , the more the merrier; she's not a Meet Up member right? Just click where it's green where you RSVP'd, click 'change' & add a plus 1! :) See you in Brixton! :)

    Hi Walkabouters!
    I'm planning to check soon about the Dog Star Veganizing their pizzas for anyone who fancies one in the pub! Also, they currently still have lovely Pitfield's Organic Beer in bottles available, well worth checking out! Looking forward to a new year of delights; I'll also be keeping you up to date about new delights to be discovered!!
    All the best, Jess :)
