I was early for an appointment nearby so just popped in without any expectations.... only to find I'd hit up a tranquil haven of deliciousness. I shopped for vegan goodies, enjoyed lovely soya hot chocolate with delicious choc & chilli cake, and then found they do interesting wines by the glass..... I was a bit late for my appointment.


The staff here are extremely friendly and accommodating. We popped in for a quick cake and realised that, not only do they serve sit down meals, but among these were all-day breakfasts! We quickly decided to come again when we were feeling hungrier. I had the famous malteser cake. It is one of the few cakes I've had in London(/England!) which has the perfect balance of taste/moistness. It's not too dry and not *too* rich (though the slice they serve is more like a brick, so leftovers are definitely likely - but the staff are more than willing to wrap it up for you to take home) and the icing is lovely too. My friend had a gluten-free almond, courgette and stem ginger cake. This was, quite frankly, divine. I was informed that it was the customer 'favorite' - I can definitely see why. I imagine a lot of people would be put off by the 'gluten free'-ness of it and the fact that it sounds unusual (courgette?). But really, it is utterly delicious. You can't taste the courgette, it's not rich, the sweetness it balanced by the stem ginger (actual chunks!) and the almonds give it a lovely aftertaste and texture. I had a pot of loose leaf earl grey tea (there are several other loose leaf's, like chai, and a berry one) which was nice (and with free hot water top ups). My friend informs me that the coffee was pretty nice too! I'd definitely come back, and, indeed, am looking forward to my breakfast!


The portions were well sized. Menu is varied and super tasty with fresh, different and inspiring ingredients. Also prices are good value. Their juices are also interesting and tasty! Definitely a place to stop by for food on St John's Hill ! They have a couple of tables outside in the front but also have seats at the back of the store. They also sell lots of exciting ingredients and foodie things in the shop.
