Although I’m 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. The charming brick walls are bright 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. My friend’s butternut squash mac n ‘cheese’ served with crispy onions and jalapenos also looked appealing.
During the colder months, the cosy upper floor area may be a more welcome area of seating. The ceiling is painted with swirls of cobalt blue and stars and planets. It will make you feel as though you are part of one of Van Gogh’s famous paintings.
