Although not vegan myself, I was invited to the 100% vegan and not-for-profit Cafe Van Gogh in Southeast London’s Brixton by a friend (a meat eater, I might add!) to sample the weekend brunch on a sunny Saturday.
Located within the pretty grounds of Christ Church, Cafe Van Gogh is cute and quirky; charming brick walls are adorned with colourful works of art and chalkboards.
Sitting out in the charming courtyard area, I tucked into the most scrumptious vegan food I had sampled. The tasty scrambled tofu ‘eggs’ on toast and the spicy jerk plantain were definite highlights – I wholeheartedly recommend! My friend’s butternut squash mac n ‘cheese’ served with crispy onions and jalapenos also looked extremely appealing.
In the colder months, the cosy upper floor area may be a more welcome choice of seating. The ceiling, painted with swirls of cobalt blue and dotted with stars and planets, will make you feel as though you are part of one of Van Gogh’s famous paintings.
