Pipoca Vegan Creperie
Recently, Team Keep spent a thoroughly enjoyable evening at the vegan restaurant come zero-waste store topping up our jars with British quinoa and having a small feast of sweet and savoury dishes. A right knee's up, really.
We devoured wholemeal galettes stuffed with charred artichoke, pulled BBQ jackfruit, artisanal dairy-free cheese and sun-dried tomatoes. There is only the best local and organic produce served here- the sister restaurant to Senzala our beloved Brixton Village neighbour. The dishes are inspired by multiple nationalities/local specialities mixing French, Brazilian, Caribbean, British, South American cuisines.
The wholesome nature of the place really resonates with the gratifyingly generous portion sizes which is a real bonus.
The menu boasts seemingly endless combinations of such and none (we can report) leave you stuffed with carb-guilt.

A special shout out to their house chilli sauce which we unanimously agreed works with all servings!
Delightfully, we share a very similar ethos and mission. To inspire and invite people to live a more sustainable lifestyle and make it accessible, which at the end of the day, is key for inclusivity and a community driven movement that impacts positive change. But what adds a special zest to the already buzzing atmosphere are the warm and welcoming staff.
The zero-waste store attached is a fantastic limb to the thriving restaurant and is filled to the brim with ambient pulses, grains, nuts, seeds, pastas, lentils and other dry baking ingredients. There is a beauty section with low-impact essentials like safety razors, unpackaged soaps & shampoo bars, menstrual cups, toothbrushes and the like. This is conveniently combined with household refillable detergents for washing and surface cleaning. Additionally, there is even a refrigerated section for some fresh produce.
We could not rave about it more. In fact we can, because there is 25% off your food bill throughout the month of August! We'll no doubt see you there soon. Visit their main page here.
