Farm Girl in Notting Hill is a plant-based, Instagram sensation. The café regularly has queues our of their pretty courtyard.

They also have an outpost in Sweaty Betty on Carnaby Street. The inspirational founder, Rose Mann, has now opened a third branch off the Fulham Road. Last weekend I ventured to West London’s newest hot spot for Sunday Brunch.

As a huge lover of the iconic Notting Hill branch, I was keen to see if it lived up to the hype… and it did!

The setting

The Chelsea café has more of a restaurant feel than the original. You enter past a  sleek cocktail bar, lit with antique pendant lamps and go into  a leafy low-lit oasis with plush banquettes around the walls.

The decor is a mixture of bold stripes, bright green velvet and pale woods. It feels warm, upmarket and elegant. There are plenty of tables inside, plus a few outside.

The little things

The decor is beautiful! It has such a different feel to the Notting Hill branch with a real element of Luxury! And it feels bigger and it was easier to get a seat!

I felt like I’d been transported to a Parisian cafe with an endless choice of latte’s- there are so many to choose from!

The green juice test

Farm Girl’s green juice was small but mighty! A really tasty juice, which I assume was made in house – a delightful blend of lime, apple, cucumber, parsley & spinach.

What we ate

Honestly it was a really hard choice- everything on the menu sounded so delicious. We started the meal with a Butterfly Matcha and a Lavender Latte (which for some reason I assumed would be pink, but is just gently infused with lavender).

We tucked into the Oven Baked Aubergine in a tomato and chickpea sauce with mint and tahini yoghurt dressing and a poached egg on top.

Then the Blue Jack Tacos which were the real show stopper for me- a combo of BBQ pulled jackfruit, pineapple guacamole, lettuce & egg free mayonnaise wedged in two soft blue corn tortillas. Finally, we had Berry Pancakes what’s brunch without a dessert, right? – made with buckwheat and topped with amber maple syrup, berries & coconut shavings.

What else?

I was surprised to find that there wasn’t a massive queue.

We went at 11:30am and the staff were wonderfully accommodating, but by the time we left, the hoards had started to arrive, so I would recommend getting there early to avoid a wait.

The bill

Butterfly Matcha with oat milk: £4.50
Lavender Latte with brown rice milk: £4.20
Blue jack tacos: £12.00
Oven Baked Aubergine with fried egg: £10.00
Berry Pancakes: £12.00
Green juice: £4.00

What made you glow?

The blue jack tacos were insane! Made with jack fruit, they were an incredible vegan option on the menu and I would definitely go back for more!
