There’s much to like about Daylesford Organic’s field-to-fork ethos, providing Notting Hill with fresh, organic food direct from the farm. The ground-floor grocery, deli and bakery are the stuff of foodie fantasy. Upstairs, the open café kitchen puts this same beautiful produce to good use. Brunch is a straightforward but splendidly executed affair of scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and the like; come for portobello mushrooms on sourdough with Portobello’s moneyed residents and choose to detox (bircher muesli and wheat-free toast) or retox (bloody marys). But the place really comes into its own for lunch. Seasonal salads of, say, marinated courgette pasta, or raw slaw with cashews and a sticky soy and ginger dressing are substantial meals in their own right; bursting with health and spanking fresh ingredients. Our burger was also a belter – but at £13, it should have been. We understand that top-tier produce doesn’t come cheap, but paying £4 for a small freshly squeezed juice or a tenner for smoked salmon on pumpernickel seems overkill, especially when you factor in a long wait for a communal table and over-worked staff who rush around like headless chickens. Organic, free-range ones, of course.

I love Dayleford in the Cotswolds where I visit at weekends. When in London at the weekends, a brunch or late afternoon coffee or glass of wine at Daylesford Westbourne is always a lovely treat and you can pick some lovely ingredients.

I'm not going to lie...stepping into Daylesford Organic is a little intimidating. Pure, clean, white walled & wicker basketed, the blonde wood & glossy lacquered tables will undoubtedly have at least one group of Lululemoned yummy mummies sat around them while chipper, glowing with health waiters glide between tables bearing carafes of cucumber water and bowls of green leafage. Yep, it's definitely the kind of place that could make you hover fretfully across the street as you wonder if they'll actually even let you in...

...if they weren't so genuinely welcoming & friendly from the moment you tiptoe over the threshold. Arriving early afternoon, we were offered beaming smiles & seats immediately - they were even helpful enough to hold a table for us while we hungrily perused the deli area where gorgeously golden & squat homemade sausage rolls were piled alongside platters of seed sprinkled wholegrains, enormous bowls of virtuous salad and crates of beautifully fresh, crayola coloured fruit and vegetables. 

Although lunch dishes such as lemon splashed Dorset crab on toast and the always comforting corned beef hash with homemade brown sauce cooed at me from the menu, it seemed unthinkable to be in a place so organically flawless & healthy and not indulge in their offer of 3 heaping portions of salad for £11.50. The Daylesford Chicken Caesar with crispy streaky bacon, plump golden-yolked eggs, crispy seven-seed toasts & Parmesan curls was excellent & the perfect combination of indulgent and wholesome while heritage tomatoes with nuggets of Greek style cheese and a zingy lemon & mint dressing were sweet & juicy and a giant Israeli cous cous tabbouleh with pale green broad beans and feta was deliciously satisfying.  

Accompanied by a tumbler of fresh almond milk this was one of the most squeaky clean dining experiences I can remember but, unlike many 'clean eating' establishments, this one didn't leave me feeling out of pocket & hungry but rather with a inexplicable urge to take up yoga...I gave in to the restaurant, I've yet to give in to the Lycra. One step at a time people, one step at a time.

Beautiful breakfasts. Organic fresh and yum. The restaurant has a great feel and does make you feel relaxed. If it is the weekend make sure you drop in 30 minutes earlier to put your name down as there tends to be a 20-40 minute wait for tables. 


I really like the organic burger with amazing cheese!! All so simple but so nice high quality ingredients...
