Buckinghamshire, AmershamThe Green Grocer at 91

I made a special trip to The Green Grocer in Amersham as rumour was it was worth the visit.

This charming café-meets-deli was created by Marcello Cinelli

and there are now three branches  (another in Amersham, and one in nearby Gerrard’s Cross).

I chose to visit The Green Grocer (91 Amersham High Street) as this branch is entirely vegetarian with plenty of delicious plant-based and gluten-free options – and it definitely surpassed my expectations!

The setting

A welcome addition to the old town of Amersham, The Green Grocer is the coolest place on the High Street. It features exposed brick walls, white kitchen tiles, plant pots with dangling leaves and a long wooden sharing table in the middle of the room.

There’s additional seating indoors and a small table outdoors on the cobbled street.

The eye-catching display of desserts will draw you in as soon as you step foot inside, with a stunning assortment of sweet treats (including vegan options) such as the pistachio and olive oil cake.

The little things

The café also sells a great selection of artisan products.

The shelves are stacked with jams, chutneys and wines.

I also really liked the chilled playlist of tunes in the background and the fact that the café is dog-friendly.


The fresh juice test

I chose the “Jack” juice – a mix of celery, cucumber, apple, lime and mint, which was wonderfully refreshing.

There are lots of other juice options, such as mixed berries, apple and lime, as well as hot drinks with non-dairy milks upon request.

What we ate

We shared two mains and two desserts. I was excited to see avocado, fried eggs and za’atar on the menu, which I ordered with GF toast, as za’atar is my favourite Middle-Eastern spice blend!

We also got the Ceres Bowl which was aubergine, garlic and rosemary roasted peppers, courgette, grilled fennel, butternut squash, hummus and sun dried tomatoes. This was followed by a peanut butter blondie and an exceptional ginger-caramel bar dipped in dark chocolate, which hit the spot perfectly!

What else?

The whole team of staff are warm and lively, and contribute to the buzzing vibe.

 

The bill

Avocado, fried eggs, toast – £8.95
Ceres Bowl – £11.95
Fresh juice – £4.50
Peanut butter blondie – £3.00
Caramel chocolate bar – £2.95


What we’d go back for…

The breakfast options – from toasted banana bread with nut butter, to wheat-free granola with coconut yoghurt, blueberries and pomegranate.

Certainly worth a return visit!
