Haven't been to Mildred's for ages cos there's often a queue, but it's good scran, and I think they're good for wheat/gluten-free options, too.
If you're not looking for anything fancy, Vitao at 74 Wardour Street is good. It's a buffet - you can go for an all-you-can-eat option (might be at lunchtime only, not sure), or a cheaper one-plateful option. The chickpea stew has been ace the 4 times I had it.
There's also Tibits on Heddon Street (off Regent Street) - it's another buffet, and a lot more expensive than Vitao, but most of the food is amazing, and there's lots of space. You weigh your plate at the counter. They do fancy smoothies, teas etc. Last time I was there, someone from the/a French vegetarian society was there, taking photos, and getting VERY excited about what he was eating.
If you fancy trekking further out of town, the Bonnington Cafe in Vauxhall is often amazing. And Panda Panda in Deptford does a brilliant tofu and coriander baguette (but it's not an all-veggy place, and isn't open at night - it just needed mentioning cos of its brilliance).
Thanks for all these. I love the mix and match at Vitao. That's my favourite thing to do for lunch/linner - just have a big dish/bowl/box of STUFF.
Had never heard of Tibits so will check it out next time I'm in that area.
What's the deal with the Bonnington Cafe? There is no menu and they list their chefs like they're locals strolling in to cook for the night! I can't tell if you need to book in advance? I like the twee kitten icon on the website
- it looks like Doraemon!
Today at Brockley Market was Panda Panda's debut of having a stall there. I asked the guys working about this tofu and coriander baguette and they confirmed they have it at their shop though can't have it at the market due to set-up and space. I want to try it now, the way they described it. Mmmm.
