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!

http://www.mscupcake.co.uk                                          

>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!! :)

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 usually leave Brixton by bus around 5.30pm, but this time it may be more like 8, I think! We meet people at 7pm under the Freddy Mercury Statue, Dominion Theatre, Tottenham Court Road & wonder off to Govinda's & Maoz if anyone's hungry indeed, then head to Intrepid Fox for 9-late!

Here's the page :) Vegans Invade Intrepid Fox!

All the best, Bye for now, Jess :)

    Was my first Brixton walkabout and thoroughly enjoyed it! Great warm crowd, will definitely come again, it was a pleasure talking to new people, making new friends and dancing away at the Dog Star. Not to mention visiting the vibrant market, loved the variety of veg available and their colours. Many thanks to all!
