Kin was created by father and son, Peter and Charlie Meadows. It’s tucked away behind Oxford Street. This vegetarian café takes pride in prime ingredients which are environmentally and socially sustainable. They also support other small start-ups and suppliers.

The space

The interior is simple and minimalist. It’s light grey and cream throughout. There are two wooden tables outside, so dog-owners or sun-seekers can indulge. Inside is a choice of several table sizes. Overall, this is a prime location to grab a juice and set up camp with your laptop. They also do take-away.

The fresh juice test

 

Kin offers organic and cold-pressed juices with a choice of Green Machine, Immune Booster and Unbeetable.

The Green Machine combo of spinach, lime, cucumber and pineapple was what I went for and it was a good choice. It didn’t taste too green, as the sweetness of the pineapple balanced out the spinach. They also offer freshly brewed Kombucha and booster ginger and turmeric shots to keep away the winter colds.

What we ate

The menu at Kin Café changes daily. The breakfast includes superfood porridge, layered chia puddings, Mexican style eggs or tofu and fresh sourdough toast. As an avocado addict, I had to go for their avocado on toast. Two thickly sliced pieces of sourdough piled high with creamy smashed avocado, chilli flakes and whole hemp seeds. It was simple but delicious. We also tried the pesto tofu toasted sandwich which was packed full of flavour.

Next we sampled the peanut butter chocolate chip blondie -vegan and gluten free studded with chocolate chips and with a light vanilla flavour.

The chocolate ganache raw brownie was decorated with pink rose petals and drizzled in dark chocolate.

It’s hard to believe this brownie was raw, as it was so fudgy and gooey. It wasn’t too sweet, either, offering a healthy indulgent chocolate treat. Finally, the protein millionaire slice – raw and gluten free again. The biscuit base was topped with crunchy peanut caramel and finished with a layer of chocolate.
They’re serious about their coffee at Kin, so to round the meal off, I had a delicious oat mylk flat white (they do charge extra for non-dairy milk). We also enjoyed their lemon and mint infused water and their retail Love Raw Cacao and Cardamom mylk.

What we’d go back for…

The fresh, vibrant and colourful ingredients! Plus, I was seriously impressed by the amount of avocado piled onto the toast!
