So one of my best buds (the lovely Simon Taggart) now resides in San Francisco with his lovely lady CJ. What with him being there and me being here, catch ups are few and far between. So when he messaged to say there were stopping over in London for a few days as part of a month long European adventure, I immediately booked some time off work, and him in the diary!


Si had booked a cute little crash pad in Brixton on Airbnb and once we’d dumped the bags we headed out in the glorious sunshine to Camden where we drank gin in the sunshine and ate arepas from an amazing little stall… we then browsed the famous Camden market stalls.

That evening we headed to the Windmill Pub in Clapham for dinner whilst the boys watched the footy then moseyed ‘home’.

The next day,we started our day with a rather scrumptious breakfast at Gail’s bakery

With full bellies we headed to The British Museum for a bit of culture.

Then it was time for a bit of a leisurely stroll through soho and St James Park and a cute little house in the middle of the park!

The following morning once we’d packed up the house, had some breakfast and said farewell to our lovely friends we headed to Brixton Village.

I’d never been before and absolutely loved it. So much colour and vibrancy and things I wanted to buy!

We had a beer and some goyza in Pop Brixton and then went off exploring…

We ended our Brixton adventure back in the village for an amazing late lunch in French & Grace. F&G are an integral part of the Brixton Village food community. Their teeny tiny little restaurant – a unique, homely and intimate nook in the beating heart of the Brixton Village neighbourhood serving up a mash up of British and Middle Eastern cuisine in the most scrumptious wraps imaginable!

Serious yum! I’ll definitely be returning again soon!
