When I visit London I am always looking for places to eat and have brunch. When it comes to being healthy and having a lovely meal the places in London are endless. After hearing a lot about Tanya Mather and her book The Uncook Cookbook and discovered she had a cafe called Tanya’s Cafe and new immediately it was a place I wanted to have a Sunday Brunch.
I was greeted first by the lovely fridge of goodies. There were mini Peanut bites as well as raw cheesecakes and Key Lime Pie.
The menu was full of delicious raw brunch staples as well as lasagnes. It was breakfast time so I opted for the Unbaked Gluten Free Dehydrated Onion Bread with Avocado, the Red Velvet Cheezecake and to drink I had the Alkalizer juice.
First of came the drink. My Alkaliser is juice to help balance the body. It had in it Kale, Spinach, Lemon, Apple and Cucumber. I enjoyed it but I have since discovered I am not a fan of Kale in juice as I find it quite bitter. If I go again I will probably give a try.
Next came the food and boy I was amazed. It was the first time I had eaten anything deemed completely raw and it was delicious.
The dehydrated Gluten Free bread, although small was full of flavour. As well as the Avocado with Chilli Flakes it also came with a Guacamole which was to die for. I could genuinely eat a bowl of the stuff.
When it comes to desserts Cheesecakes are my downfall. My stomach unfortunately goes haywire so I stay away but the Red Velvet Cheezecake was everything I hoped for and more. Full of chocolatey biscuit like goodness. I devoured the plate within minutes.
Even if you are not someone who eats only raw foods you will appreciate the treats and snacks portion of the menu at Tanya’s Cafe as they do not skimp on flavour.
Over all the experience was a beautiful one. The service was great, the people at the cafe were friendly and the food was delicious.
It is pricey I won’t lie to you but as it is the first eatery of its kind it is worth a treat every now and then.Based in one of the most beautiful parts of London it is in the perfect location for a relaxing Sunday afternoon.
Do you have a favourite brunch spot in London? If you do I would love some recommendations.
