Here’s a quick run down of some of the latest businesses to accept the B£. As well as paying in B£s you can also ask for them in change, a quick and easy way to get hold of B£s without visiting an exchange point.
1. Phillip’s Fruit + Veg, Brixton Village [previously Granville Arcade]
Phillip has been running this greengrocers in Brixton Village for almost seven years. He sells a huge variety of fruit and veg, including Brixton staples like yams, green bananas and coconuts.
2. Take 2wo, Brixton Village/Coldharbour Lane
Take 2wo is a friendly café/restaurant serving great value Caribbean food. It’s often open late and on Saturdays there’s a BBQ just outside where you can take your pick from jerked meats and roasted fish.
3. The Agile Rabbit, Brixton Village
The Agile Rabbit [note the bunny on the unicycle] is a very recent addition to Brixton Village, having only been open for five weeks. Run by Victor, they serve up excellent quality pizza to takeaway or linger over in their sun-trap of a restaurant. Look out for their bicycle-powered delivery service launching this Summer.
4. Etta’s Seafood Kitchen
In her charmingly decorated kitchen Etta cooks up a wide range of delicious fish dishes like crab fritters, steamed mussels and seafood linguine. Prices are incredibly reasonable and there’s an (even cheaper) children’s menu too.
