London, Notting HillThe Dayrooms Café, a health kick hotspot

In the heart of Notting Hill is the newly opened The Dayrooms Café. Owners Aytun Mehdiyeva and Zumrud Mammadova have created an Australian-style café with freshly made food.

It’s linked to their lifestyle fashion brand. We discovered Notting Hill mummies and tourists when we visited on a Friday morning.

The waitress told us they have queues at the weekend.

We think it makes the perfect Sunday morning health kick spot. It’s one of our top cafés to refuel before exploring Portobello market.


 

The Setting

The staff are super friendly. The windows open on to the street outside with two outdoor tables. The music is upbeat and cool.

There is free WiFi with the code “noworries” which sums up the atmosphere.

The Little Things

The Dayrooms Café is pretty with botanical prints on the wall. Fashion magazines hang off a bamboo ladder.

There are plants high above the service area. And the floor is full of pretty turquoise tiles.

The Green Juice Test

We tried their cold-pressed Lean Green made by Press Juicery. It s made of cucumber, celery, lemon, spinach, kale, romaine lettuce and ginger.

It’s bitter without the apple but really refreshing. £5.00

We also liked their killer smoothie aka the Green Smoothie – kale, spinach, lime, apple, cucumber and ginger blended.

What we ate

We started with the breakfast bowl – avocado smash, sweet potato, shredded carrots, watercress, courgette and ricotta fritters with herby creme fiche and salsa verde.

The açai bowl was a work of art and topped with chia seeds, coconut, goji berries, banana and edible flowers. The crunchy coconut bircher muesli went in a flash – muesli, lime curd, berries and mint.

We had a turmeric latte and a matcha latte to drink. Grab the turmeric if you like the sweeter option.

What else is going on?

The presentation of all the food was spot on. Edible flowers, nuts, seeds and berries and general attention to detail was brilliant.

 

The bill

£45.50 so not a cheap option but good, healthy food rarely is. We sat for over two hours and loved every minute. The most expensive item was the breakfast bowl for £12.00.

What made us glow?

The breakfast was genuinely delicious and didn’t just look pretty – it tasted awesome.

The service was also standout.

This is a classic healthy café – a cute weekend brunch or something for lunch using healthy ingredients in a community based gem – somewhere that makes everyone glow inside and out!
