Daylesford Farmshop and Café opens its fourth London location at Brompton Cross.

Prized for its organic food and sustainable efforts, the new Daylesford Farmshop and Café promises to be as consciously minded as ever.

The Spot:

In terms of design, that means a dying oak tree has been saved and given transformed into a piece of natural art, taking centre stage throughout the three-story space. In the farm shop, most of what you see comes in from their very own award-winning farm in the Cotswolds, from baked breads to cheeses and wholesome meals packed with seasonal vegetables. These fresh offerings continue to shine through in their café, where open ovens tempt you with sourdough pizzas.

The Food:

Changing with the seasons, breakfast includes comforting bowls of porridge and fruits, free-range eggs with creamed mushrooms, and buttermilk pancakes with lemon maple syrup. Lunch and dinner bring in a line-up of salads (finished off with glazed pecans and buckwheat groats), pizzas (look for specials) and plates of spit-roasted lamb and chicken. For dessert, try their caramel crunch ice cream while you still can.

The Drinks:

Besides tea and coffee, Daylesford at Brompton Cross introduces a new juice bar with plant-based drinks and smoothies, made with greens and ginger, matcha and kale, or espresso and dates (all organic of course). There’s also a list of wines, botanical cocktails, and cider and ales.

The Damage:

Breakfast costs around £7-£13; lunch and dinner varies between £14 and £18.

In a Nutshell:

In a time where we’re becoming increasingly aware of our impact on the environment, Daylesford Farmshop and Café leads by example. Besides choosing local and seasonal ingredients, none of the food is wasted; packaging is recyclable, reusable or compostable; and straws are made from wheat stalks.
