Brown and Green: Crystal Palace
Updated: Oct 15, 2019
This lovely cafe was busy and clearly popular with the locals in Crystal Palace, it had a quirky but homely feel to it, the staff were friendly, and the food was so good!
The breakfast I chose is only available at the Brown and Green on 'The Triangle' in Crystal Palace, but the other locations do the other options listed below.
The vegan breakfast - vegan harissa sausages, herby tomatoes, mushrooms, pot of beans, hummus, and sourdough toast
The smart butty - slaw, mushroom, avocado, rocket and tomato
Cardamom and apricot granola - with bircher muesli, chia seeds, compote, and fresh seasonal fruit
Cacao and sea salt granola - with bircher muesli, chia seeds, compote, and fresh seasonal fruit
*Vegan on request* The masala breakfast - vegan samosa, dahl, herby tomato, mushroom, masala scrambled tofu, pickles, flatbread and coriander
*Vegan on request* Smashed avocado on sourdough - with rocket, feta, seeds, and tomato
*Vegan on request* Porridge - with yoghurt, seeds, fruit and honey (Not available weekends)
This is 'The Masala Breakfast' (vegan version) where the egg is swapped for scrambled tofu.
This was a full vegan breakfast with an Indian style twist, everything was highly flavoured, the scrambled tofu was made with herbs and spices, the flatbread was doused in herbs and garlic, and the super fresh giant homemade vegan samosa was possibly the best one I've ever had.
I would definitely recommend these cafes, they didn't cut corners with their food, they made decent sized portions and used fresh ingredients, and I really appreciated the attention to detail with the homemade samosas and flatbreads.
