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

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 ...

Senzala Creperie                                                                               New Find, care of Sean (FGV's) friend Wayne; see this blog entry> http://fatgayvegan.com/2014/01/16/senzala-in-brixton/    Located in Brixton Village Market, they have a little Vegan section on their menu featuring 3 options & they can do gluten free crepes too!  Here's a photo from Sean's blog & a note from Wayne's review;  ''...This is my crepe, with caramelised onions, mushrooms, asparagus and lots of protein-rich rocket...''          (Looks nice... :) )

((Photo by FGV's friend Wayne))

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 upstairs near DJ booth/pool table, from 7pm-late!! :)

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

      Cheers Sean! :) I did see your article the other day & thought 'oh, that looks nice...hhhmm....' :) ; the Walkabout will be meandering once again some day soon!! :) Thanks again! :) x *I'll add a note about it to the Walkabout blurb soon :) *

      Open letter, to FatGayVegan.

      Sean, I hate to say this, but I think you're becoming somewhat obsessed with this creep business. At first it was straight, single, vegan men, and now it's the inhabitants of Brixton. You're either hallucinating or becoming seriously paranoid. To tar one group of people, after another with the same brush, is getting ridiculous to say the least. In defense of the good folk of Brixton, I'd like to say that they're such a decent people, that I have come across anywhere in London! To call them creeps, is nothing short of, but outrageous! I demand that you retract your words.
      What was that? ..... what? ............... ah! I see, well I must've misread ya, or 'I might have been hallucinating'. I do apologise dear old chap, ....... you mean there's (vegan) crepes in Brixton. :-p ..... Thanks for the great tip, I'm off there, straight away!
