35 Ixworth Place
This place has been ridiculously popular, and for good reason. Not only does this raw food cafe offer seriously inventive and delicious breakfast, lunches and dinners but their raw and sugar free cocktails are my absolute favourite (they’re Europe’s first superfood cocktail bar). Finally a place where you can enjoy a cocktail without feeling too guilty. Their raw cheesecakes are the perfect addition. Check out my full blog here for more details.
398 Kings Road
Another newly opened cafe in Chelsea (towards World’s End) where health junkies will feel right at home. Their cold-pressed juices are delicious, as are their smashed avocado/mustard seeds/chilli oil on sourdough bread. I loved the decor, with comfy sofas and large windows for Kings Road people watching. Check out my full blog here for more details.
267 New Kings Road
Everyone loves Hally’s by Parson’s Green and now she’s opened a sibling cafe across the road. It’s smaller, cuter and with a Californian edge. And, while Hally’s has some healthy options, here the emphasis is purely on health foods. They offer a huge range of juices and smoothies (regular for £3.90) and superfood shots (wheatgrass/spirulina/chia/lucama) for £0.50. I love all their healthy snack bars too. And their chia pots look amazing. Not much seating space though. More detailed blog up soon.
115 Westbourne Grove, Notting Hill
The Paleo Diet (aka the Cave Man Diet) seems to be the most popular diet of January 2015 so far, and Pure Taste is the first London restaurant offering a paleo-friendly (and gluten free) dining experience. I have not been yet, but my sister has. While she said the food was good (it’s especially great for meat lovers), the service wasn’t great and the prices are high for small portions. Still, it’s super healthy, so it might be something for you.
110 Talbot Road, Notting Hill
It’s been on my list since it opened last year, and I still have not been. This raw food restaurant in Notting Hill is the place to head to for breakfasts and lunch. Apparently their dairy/sugar/gluten free porridge is to die for.
59 Sloane Avenue, South Kensington
My favourite South Kensington brunch place, the Good Life Eatery was one of the first healthy eateries in London. Offering a mix of gluten/dairy/sugar-free breakfast/brunch/lunch options, as well as gluten free pastries and snacks – this has quickly become the Grand Dame of healthy eateries in London. While it’s pretty expensive, you could easily spend a chilled day here, reading the papers and sipping cold pressed beetroot juice, with a gluten/sugar free scone on the side. What’s not to like?

Soho and Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge
The name says it all. This cute little Deli (the main branch is in Soho, but they’re also part of the food court in Harvey Nichols) serves everything and anything healthy. Great salads (also for take away), roasted veggies and tarts make it is perfect lunch place. They also make the best banana bread (sugar free, of course). For more info check out my full blog here.
A chain, I know, and not really an eatery as such as this is more a take away place (though some branches do offer seating areas). But since they’re dotted all around London (new ones have opened on High Street Ken and in Notting Hill) they are super accessible. And seriously good value. They offer a huge range of juices, and their freshly pressed juices are no more than £4 for a regular. In January they are offering a free shot of wheatgrass or spirulina with each juice you buy. Their spinach/salmon/seed pots are perfect for a mid-morning snack, and their salads are ideal for lunch.
