London is nailing healthy food (for my top choices check out this blog, though a new favourite is Who loves you). But Tiny Leaf is trying to take it one step further, offering healthy, organic and delicious food, which is zero waste. So what does zero waste mean? In this case it means they turn surplus food generously donated from local food suppliers into beautiful dishes. Win win.
Tiny Leaf has settled into the Bumpkin restaurant on the Northern edge of Notting Hill. It’s the perfect place for brunch, offering the ‘usuals’ (poached eggs/avocado on toast), but also a delightful Breakfast Taco and the most moorish Buckwheat pancakes. We ended up sharing the pancakes as a second course as were still hungry after our Taco (note: it’s healthy, but not overly filling). To drink they offer kombucha (fermented green tea, I love it), a range of cold-pressed green juices and various mylk coffees.
But it’s not just a brunch venue. Open all day, you can come here for a late lunch, a cocktail (they have two cocktail bars) or dinner. It’s vegetarian, but their dinner dishes are inventive.
It’s a beautiful restaurant, very green and light. The staff are friendly and it has a nice vibe to it. I’m not sure how long they are going to be around for, so I suggest you go soon.
