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.facebook/thevegantart

Dumisani & Andy, the 'tarts' :)















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))

A fine example of what to expect....... :)

(Photo I took of my plate in October 2012)






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!

Ms Cupcake (AKA 'Melissa') with a very naughty tray of her creations!













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

>See Trina's Delicacies, (Vegetarian & Vegan), for her Vegan brownies & cupcakes; she often has free samples to try too...well worth a try :) . I've had 2 cupcakes; nice delicate, fluffy, yum! ((Located near Saba's/Vegan Tart))

Trina's Delicacies

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

>The Oracle's Organic Juice Bar; lovely salads & fresh juices in Brixton Village, 6th Avenue; see Sean's article here..... :)

You can crush us | fatgayvegan

>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!'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!! :)

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)

So, latecomers, get yourselves down Brixton Station Road; if you don't see a group of vegans queuing by Saba or loitering at The Vegan Tart stand---

1) Look around the market for a seated area or generally explore the area! You are very likely to bump into someone you know!

2) Pop up those stairs to the Recreation Centre & look to your left

3) Pop by Ms Cupcake...

4) Gone 3pm? Just get down to The Dog Star!! OR head up to Brockwell Park! :)

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

    Hi, I'd like to come but I'm on a night shift tonight; would it be alright to join you at The Dog Star?

    May 31, 2013

    • Jessica Stella F.

      Hi Paul; Sorry I didn't reply earlier... did you make it to the Dog Star? As I've written above...bit of a slower, smaller laid back vibe to yesterday... I was feeling a bit groggy so it suited my mood too! All the best, Jess

      June 3, 2013

  • Jessica Stella F.

    Hello! It was lovely to meet a number of new faces this month; it was a slower, smaller & very laid back laid back even though I was hanging out with under 10 people to begin with, I lost about 4 people in the market!! Hope you were alright Patrick, Jeaney, & 2 more whose names escape me right now! :) It was lovely to see the latecomers, or 'Badgers', at Ms Cupcake & the Dog Star!! I missed saying goodbye to several people; I hope everyone got home alright later! I'll pop the photos up soon! All the best, Jess :)

  • Steven OG S.

    June 1, 2013

  • India L.

    Hi, I may go to the march first and come along later. does anyone have mobile they don't mind giving out so i can find out where you are? thanks! :)

    May 31, 2013

    • Jessica Stella F.

      Hi India-Leigh; I don't add my number here, but a simple guide to the day is,[masked]pm, at tube, waiting for latecomers then walking to Brixton Station Road;[masked]; In the market, look out for Saba's & The Vegan Tart *you can't miss 2 boys in chef's hats with a heart & Tart on them!* They should know if we're around, if you've just missed us, etc... ; 2-3, usually we move on to Ms Cupcake, via a wonder through the streets, sometimes taking in the covered markets too...e,g, some may get coffee, some might get salad, etc! > 3pm; as of last month, it's 'Pub OR Park' time... simple...relax at the Dog Star or Walk 10 minutes + to Brockwell Park. It's lovely...I'm a fan of the walled garden! After a couple of hours, we may head back to the Dog Star... I also know of a pub we can wonder off to that's just out of the other end of Brockwell Park, at Tulse Hill... The Railway Tavern. It has a huge lovely Beer garden... ideal for a nice day!! :) All the best, see you down Sarrf! :)

      India, I think quite a few of us are planning to do the Badger march and then go to Brixton. Here's the London Vegan Meetup event for the Badger March:­

      June 1, 2013

  • Robb

    Hoping to pop in after the badger march...

    May 31, 2013

  • Guy

    I might be late. If so I'll come and find you.

    May 31, 2013

  • Victoria

    I'll try to come along to this but will depend what time the cable company decides to drop by my house. Hopefully they will come over first thing in the morning and leave me plenty of time to come join you at the tube station.

    May 31, 2013

  • Jeaney

    I don't know anyone, so if I am late, how would I know who's part of the group?

    May 9, 2013

    • Jeaney

      Just wondering what time does it usually end? Cos I need to work at 6pm and it's about an hour and a half hike back home!

      May 28, 2013

    • Jessica Stella F.

      Hi Jeaney; it's an all dayer...the end is when the last people go to the tube, etc, & I get my bus home!! :) So see you down sarrff for however long you can stay :)

      May 31, 2013

    Hello Walkabouters!
    This month's Walkabout is on the same day as the big march against the Badger cull; I know many people will want to show their support, so here are the details if you plan to attend & then join us later in Brixton >> >> I'm thinking of still meeting people as usual at Brixton Tube at 12.30pm, but I'm there in spirit of course! I think, anyone who doesn't fancy the crowds of such a huge march, this walkabout, in the spirit of the protest we should all turn up in Black & White. I don't have a badger mask...but I've got another sort of mask.... I may well wear it! Do let me know who fancies marching & who'll be meeting me as usual in Brixton! All the best, Jess :) x

      Hi Lewis, apologies if you read my post in that way. We put that we are also going to be at W Norwood for anyone that is in the area on that day or can't make this event. We definitely aren't about money making. The joys of this group is that some people just come by to have a chat. We don't feel the need that everyone who comes need to buy a product from us or any of the other stall holders and always appreciate having a hi. I belong to other vegan meet up groups which has given me the opportunity to meet many new friends and I feel that this group is perfect for that. Dumisani

    May 20, 2013

    • Helen

      a few of us are marching first and then joining the walkabouters in Brixton afterwards.
