Brixton Village restaurant Carioca
If you're after some good carb-loading on a Sunday morning and you happen to be in the Brixton area, then it's worth stopping in for Carioca's Copacabana breakfast – the chef has given his own Brazilian spin to English brunch food, serving up the likes of pulled braised beef, fried plantain and black bean stew arranged over a homemade maize muffin and topped with a poached egg.

There are plenty of veggie options on offer at Carioca as well – from the Favela da Rossa breakfast of ripe plantain slices sandwiched between slices of mozzarella, fried and topped with fresh tomato, poached eggs and hollandaise sauce to a vegetarian English breakfast, these dishes are certainly light but they're cooked with gusto and authenticity. And, if you're after something a little healthier you might be better off tucking into a trendy Brazilian superfood: açai berries served with granola, yogurt and banana.
Brazilian dishes with a British twist
If you're a traditionalist, Carioca also offer classic English brunch dishes, including a variations on everyone's favourite – Eggs Benedict. With a dearth of good brunch and breakfast spots in Brixton Village Market, this more unusual option will entertain your taste buds and make for a good refuge on a lazy Sunday morning. It's small and there aren't many tables so you might find yourself waiting a little while to be seated, but the vibrant surrounds and friendly staff make Carioca worth a stop-in.
