Les Filles is the third restaurant in the LLS chain created by the inspirational plant-based restauranteurs, sisters Sonia and Hayet Zaame. Their other branches include LLS Hampstead and LLS Waterloo. Les Filles is an Australian inspired café and turns fresh, healthy ingredients into beautifully presented sumptuous dishes avoiding chemicals. The menu focuses on vegan-friendly food, but offers something for everyone, whether or not you’re vegetarian.

The setting

Les Filles is a short walk from Lancaster Gate station, between Bayswater and Paddington. It’s close to Hyde Park for an after walk latte.

The space

The street is quiet and the ambience is relaxing inside. Pick a wooden table with blue velvet stools to perch on, or curl up in the cosy cushioned spot by the window.

The wallpaper showcases artwork and quotes, reflecting the restaurant’s mission which is “everyone leaves feeling that little bit better”.

There’s an impressive selection of vegan and gluten-free desserts, such as carrot cake and banana bread on display. The table service was excellent too- fast, friendly and incredibly helpful when it came to allergies!

The crowd

The café is popular among customers of all ages and attracts many vegans for a vast selection of plant-based food, although it does also cater for meat-eaters too. When I visited for my review, it wasn’t too busy which made it easy to get a table. Dogs are also welcome!

The fresh juice test

We chose a freshly made Mean Green Juice – a nutrient-dense concoction of apple, cucumber, celery, kale and ginger.

In addition, we ordered a matcha latte with almond mylk and a beetroot latte with oat mylk, which came with a gorgeous sprinkle of dried rose petals.

What we ate

The menu places an emphasis on vegan and vegetarian food, yet they offer everything from poached eggs to chicken sandwiches. We shared two breakfasts. The porridge infused with earl grey tea was cooked in coconut mylk to creamy perfection and decorated with a variety of fresh fruit and an edible flower adding an elegant touch. We also had the stack of buckwheat pancakes served with mixed berries, sliced banana, a dollop of coconut cream and lashings of sweet date syrup.

The pancakes were flawlessly fluffy and the earl grey porridge had a truly unique flavour.

What we’d go back for…

The buckwheat pancakes and the colourful lattes plus the wonderful service!
