London, Mill HillBrewed+Pressed - a super-food café created by dentists

Brewed+Pressed began in Dallas, Texas with a juice bar launched by Sohail Dar and Mike Heffelfinger, two dentists and friends who share a career and a purpose.

They want to empower you to feel better from the inside out.

For the two friends, healthy was not about boring but about nutritious everyday food packed with flavour. Or as they say it is a about “the art of nourishment”.


The setting

The cafe is bright, modern and inviting. Think modern pine walls, floors and tables with marble accents and cactus plants. As you walk in, you’re greeted with an array of raw cakes on the bar, chocolate, mocha or berry – they all scream ‘eat me’.

And there are homemade gluten-free cakes.

The indulgent red velvet layer cake smothered in a smooth white creamy icing grabbed my attention the most although as it was breakfast I sadly gave it a miss.

The little things

I loved that Brewed +Press also sell freshly-made soaps packed with natural ingredients and look delicious enough to eat!

They offer free wifi and has a welcoming working environment so you can sit and work at your laptop whilst drinking your matcha latte.

I also found the staff were friendly and really helpful in helping me decide what to have!!

The green juice test

The green juice comes in a bottle, so if you don’t finish it, you can take it away! It was light in flavour making it easy to sip across the morning – not too sweet and the addition of the lemon gave it a slightly sharp edge which I’m a fan of.

What we ate

There are plenty of of raw breakfast options including raw granola, matcha chia pudding and the classics such as avo on toast and a great bowl of oats topped with banana, sliced, almonds, cranberries and cinnamon.

We tucked into a warming shakshuka and a trusty smashed avo on sourdough with poached eggs.

The shakshuka was the perfect order for a frosty morning. It was warming, loaded with spice and packed a punch with the extra peppers.

The smashed avo was served on a chunky slice of sourdough which provided the perfect crunch and I particularly loved the addition of the mixed seeds and chilli flakes to give it an extra kick.

The eggs were cooked to perfection in both dishes!

We also enjoyed a matcha tea and a lemon, ginger, cayenne and turmeric shot. It wasn’t too hot which meant it went down much easier than some of the ones I’ve had in the past!

What else?

The choice of snacks on the counter was so good that I was tempted to fuel up for the day. They offer homemade buckwheat granola that you can take home along with some of my favourite on-the-go snacks including a whole selection of the Ombar collection!

What made us glow

I loved the brightness and calmness, it has a very soothing vibe to it which left me uplifted and excited about the day ahead! I’ll be back!
