    noone here spoke to management because if

    then she'd get grief if anyone, tbh it was the way the guy first asks for id and then says no "unfortunately" that they were vexed by.....anyway lessons learnt etc :hmm:

    There is also the cake shop on CHL one corner with Gresham road. Mainly cakes to order. Its been there for a while before that row of shops opposite Barrier block got popular.

    There is also one inside the Village by the exit to Pope's Road but I'm thinking that may have recently been yuppified as I recall seeing some 'small plates' thing in roughly the same place.

    Ah yes, that's the one I'm thinking of. And yes, they're still going Best Cake Shops in Brixton, South London

    Another vote for sponge and cream! I didn't even know it was called that. Just know it as the cake shop!

    shakespearegirl just worked out taglines

    It is great they are reducing the sugar content of the icing. Mr Shakes loves them because they are vegan but I can't even get through half a cupcake as they are sooooooooo sweet they make my teeth hurt...

    I always read this sign as Brixton Coke shop. The logo doesn’t help.

    Me too! :D The logo could also be interpreted as a big mound of coke.

    Eighty fucking quid for a whole 120 minutes of a 'masterclass'. And if you have any money left you can swill down £13 cocktail and enjoy a bottle of Effra Ale for six quid.

    This has to be the most gentrified street in Brixton now.

    "All afternoon party"
    Eat, drink, theatre for £50 what else could you possibly do with your Saturday afternoon - are they aiming at the Stag and Hen do clientele?

    I went a couple of times and thought it was good, but it was never busy, generally or compared to neighbours.

    Spotted bagel world last night next to McDonald's and went in to soak up some alcohol.

    They apparently turn off the toaster after 11 because they get so busy. Result was a dry stale bagel that was near impossible to eat. Got home and scraped the fillings off, grilled it and then spread them back on. Was vaguely edible but still clearly not fresh.

    Having grown up in East London I was excited to see a late night bagel place in Brixton, but they need to copy other establishments and either buy from the Brick Lane bakery daily or at least get better, fresher bagels. Can't see them lasting even with their prime location and late night opening if people don't like the food.

    They also did various patties, jerk chicken, macaroni cheese & etc but I didn't try any of it and with Refill round the corner they've got established competition on that front.

    Anyone else had a better experience?
