The list of cafes and restaurants I want to visit in London is endless. But as I’m debating where to go for brunch this fine Saturday morning, I thought I’d share a few places which I’ve ticked off my list recently.
Best brunch spots (according to me!)
Located in the heart of Notting Hill, Farm Girl is a holistic and healthy eatery, influenced by Australian café culture. FG values fresh, nutritional ingredients and delivers them in a warm and welcoming environment.
The décor is gorgeous inside but I couldn’t resist sitting outside at this distressed pastel pink table. I could have eaten EVERYTHING on the menu but unfortunately, I was pushed for time and went for the yoghurt bowl, which tasted as incredible as it looked.
I highly recommend the rose latte too and cannot wait to go back for a lavender one!
If you like beautiful interiors, look no further than the Tom Dixon-designed restaurant, Bronte. It overlooks the bustling Trafalgar Square and is open from breakfast to dinner. The menu is extensive, detailed and serves clean, modern European & Asian inspired dishes.
I chose the buttermilk pancakes, which were thick, sweet and super filling. I’d love to try the banana French toast next time! I also had the chilli melon juice, which was a delight. So refreshing!
I loved the understated colour scheme and lighting.
No 197 Chiswick Fire Station
An old fire station which has been repurposed as an independent neighbourhood bar and restaurant. With its contemporary interior and laid-back vibe, 197 Chiswick Fire Station is the perfect place for relaxed eating and drinking.
Unfortunately, I didn’t manage to get a decent picture of my meal because I was too busy drooling over the interiors but all the food is fresh and cooked from scratch with a focus on well-sourced ingredients.
The champagne Bellini’s are also pretty special!
Based in Notting Hill, Farmacy enables clean indulgence, inspired by dishes from around the globe. It supports both a vegan and vegetarian diet, free from dairy, refined sugars, additives and chemicals.
I’m neither vegan nor vegetarian but I’m a huge fan of the clean eating concept and absolutely loved this place. In fact, I loved it so much that I ordered three different drinks at once because I couldn’t settle on just the one!
I went for the house pancakes made with buckwheat flour served with fresh fruit, coconut ‘yoghurt’, chia berry jam and maple syrup. As for drinks, I ordered the Golden Milk (turmeric, black pepper, cardamom & coconut milk), beetroot and cinnamon tea and the Melt Away shot.
