On Monday last week I visited Brixton Village in London for a foodie birthday day trip.
Highlights of the day were great coffees and salted caramel chocolate brownie in Federation Coffee, and burgers with rosemary-salt chips and beetroot & apple coleslaw in Honest Burger. The burgers were absolutely amazing, and the staff there were so sweet; even when Joe threw chips all over the floor!
Just to offset the eating parts of the day slightly, we took a walk past Brockwell Lido and up the hill through Brockwell Park. The view over central London was a pleasant surprise when we reached the top; even though it was a little hazy we could see The Gherkin and The Shard.
I liked the feel of Brixton. I was worried it might have been spoiled slightly by the recent-ish regeneration and following influx of hipsters. Especially on a Monday, the place had a good, chilled out atmosphere; people shopping at the markets and sitting outside with their coffees. I’ll definitely have to go back for more snacking and wandering soon.
