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 visited Daylesford Organic for the second time this weekend for lunch and had a great experience. Relaxed, cheery atmosphere with a fresh food counter and a restaurant behind. Lovely fresh food and juices, friendly service and don't miss the daily specials! We had the salad trios with potato wedges and finished the meal with the daily special dessert: Eton mess with rhubarb purée. So good!
I really like the organic burger with amazing cheese!! All so simple but so nice high quality ingredients...
