3 out of 5 stars

A café focused on wholesome food and coffee in Parsons Green.

Fulham’s nattering classes have a new HQ – groups of threes and fours in baseball caps, yoga tights, lip gloss and sunglasses squeeze around small tables, air kiss, wave and generally catch up on the latest goss at this bang-on-trend café.

Turning up for lunch well past one, I was handed the brunch menu as a matter of course – you know how it is in Parsons Green. Staff are chalk and cheese, from the friendly welcome behind the counter to the gruff ‘tell me’ from a waitress once we’d indicated we were ready to order – while a request for poached eggs with a side of mushrooms was met with a face that suggested a grave social faux pas had been committed. A beef steak with roasted vegetables was fine, but came with a garlic-heavy salsa verde that lingered longer than the mother-in-law. But first and foremost this is a coffee, cake and chat kind of place. The caffeine itself won’t leave you disappointed, either – a flat white was rich and deep with a light liquorice aftertaste, and the in-house blend changes seasonally. This is a good spot for starting, or finishing, a weekend – expect to see and be seen.

I actually had my husband and his friend meet here as the menu online looked enticing. Sadly it’s inaccurate and the dinner menu is very different. I notice this constantly in London restaurants. Anyway I ordered the butternut squash, kale, ricotta cheese and mushroom salad and my husband and friend split the meat platter with Parma ham, cheese, gherkins and a lovely cranberry compote (but no sourdough as the menu states, only pita slices). The friend got the sea bass and my husband the spicy chicken. I LOVED the black rice that accompanied the chicken; it was buttery and incredibly savoury with the wilted spinach. The friend liked his fish but I thought the samphire side was too small (but very tasty). My salad was tasty enough with the ricotta but not amazing. I do give this place props though for the full serving glasses of wine. There were definitely two servings in my pour! The Syrah was smooth and my Pinot Grigio was decent. Small wine list by the glass though. The service was quite good with the two service members on staff so it’s a shame no one else came in all evening!

I had come to know of this place from a reliable vlogger's YouTube video a few months back, and by chance I was in the Parsons Green area over the weekend, We were unfortunately unable to stop for proper food but we had a coffee to take away. Their mocha carried a good, strong taste with the taste of coffee riding heavier than the chocolate syrup (which is what I prefer). We had a taste of their salted caramel brownie and it was unbelievably tasty! The friendly barista was also, so I was informed, very talented with his latte art as he said he would've done something different had he known I was going to take a photo (intriguing!). From my short visit, I would happily go again if I was around the area as the interior looks sleek, comfortable and a good place to chill~
