Farm Girl Cafe, Notting Hill

August 17, 2015

London is (thankfully) not yet done with wonderful places to have a healthy but delicious brunch.

The Australia-inspired ‘Farm Girl’ cafe opened last month on Portobello Road in Notting Hill, by couple Rosie and Ant and their adorabe French Bull dog. A prime location but even better because it is set back from the touristy market road and even has its own little courtyard terrace. So it’s quiet. Tourists don’t really know it’s there, so it’s more a local thing.  Which is how I like it.

If healthy food isn’t really your thing then you probably won’t enjoy it here. Even the croissants are wholewheat.  They offer a club sandwich with bacon which actually isn’t bacon at all. It’s smoked coconut which tastes quite a lot like bacon. It’s their signature dish and it’s doing very well.

I went for the buckwheat berry and coconut pancakes. They are exactly what I try and make on the weekend and fail miserably at. These are so deliciously moorish I’d probably have them again and again.  Their salads are huge and zesty and their chicken dishes are very popular (when we went the chicken had run out).

Drinks are in the form of various juices, most of them with superfood powders like Lucama and Maca, or with almond butter and coconut. Or all mixed together: the Power smoothie.

I love the interiors of the place – the deep green and blue shiny tiles and wooden floors adding an elegance to the place. There is a large bar filled with plates of (healthy) pastries and bites.  Baskets of fruit hang from the walls.  There’s also a newspaper stand for those keen on reading the weekend papers.  This is my kind of place, and if you like Hally’s, the Good Life Eatery and Tanya’s Cafe, it may well be your kind of place too.
