#DiscoverDeptford - discovering a plant based Deptford!

We love Deptford, and the fact that a jaunt down the High Street is guaranteed to turn up some unexpected delights in terms of local art and creations. But it is not just local art and artists that Deptford is renowned for – the area is fast establishing itself as a destination for those more partial to a plant based diet.

If your desired protein source is more of the pulse variety then, look no further than some of these delicacies in the Deptford and New Cross area – all within short reach of our Deptford Foundry development!

The Full Nelson

Known to some as the most knock-out of wrestling moves, this hidden gem is a knock-out in its own right, providing a vegan menu guaranteed to hit the spot if you’re fancy something a bit heavier than avocado on toast. Located on the Deptford Broadway, this self-confessed vegan ‘junk food’ hotspot is tapping in to a market we didn’t even realise how much we needed! What’s more, your four-legged friends are even welcome to come along with you – who better to split a vegan cheese dipper with?!

Vinyl Deptford

You’d be (almost) forgiven for passing by this store front and not stopping – if its vegan delicacies you’re after, that is. However, Deptford’s favourite record shop is the gift that keeps on giving, with the space being utilised as a gallery, and also a vegan friendly café. Why not stop by and enjoy a sift through one of South London’s most diverse vinyl collections, and reward yourself afterwards with a vegan brownie and latte? If you ask us, that sounds like an absolutely perfect Saturday morning treat!

Dirty Apron

Located within our much-loved Deptford Market Yard, just a short walk from Deptford Foundry, Dirty Apron truly has it all. With a menu to delight both meat eaters and vegans alike, the independent café and restaurant’s seasonal menu is guaranteed to keep you on your toes, with new dishes introduced every week! We’d recommend giving their brunch menu a whirl if you’re at a loss over a weekend – because if there is one thing that a vegan menu does well, it is brunch!

LoveGift Vegan

Slightly further afield in Brockley, but equally worth a visit, LoveGift Vegan offers a comprehensive menu of plant based delights that could easily challenge that of somewhere in Soho. Inspired by the Caribbean in both its food and its mantra, the laid-back surroundings and ample workshops and events are a wholesome offering for the mind, body and spirit!

The Waiting Room

Sister café of the Full Nelson, The Waiting Room is the place to be when as a vegan you are fancying a BBQ slider…plant based slider of course! Priding itself on its ‘damn fine’ coffee offering, this humble hotspot will provide you with a soundtrack sourced from the greats whilst you sip on your coconut latte… Out of a coconut. What more could you want?
