Foodie Friday: The Bach, Raw Press, Palm Vaults

Hello everyone! Here we are with the brand new Foodie Friday where I’m going to tell you about three most amazing places for breakfast, lunch or naughty cake I’ve had a great pleasure to visit lately. Hope you enjoy!!!

The Bach

Foodie Friday: The Bach

Location: Broadway Market, E8 4QJ

Average price: £35/ lunch for 2

Type of menu: cafe food made from locally sourced ingredients

Interior: Very simple, raw, minimalist, New Zeland- inspired. Tons of wood in light colours give you that Scandinavian feeling.

Recommendations: Toasted banana bread is a must! OMG, they have the best flippin’ banana bread on this planet!!! Seriously! You can order it with yogurt and honey but for me plain one (served with butter) is just perfect. Really, you have to try it!!! If you’re up for lunch be prepared for generous portions of simple, fresh food. I really enjoyed vegetarian mezze plate with grilled veggies as well as corn fritters- both dishes come with home-made chilli jam which is -ah!- simply epic!

What I love about the place: The food is absolutely fantastic (did I mention banana bread?!) but another thing that I like about The Batch is them being all about East London, sourcing ingredients locally which I think is great. Another good news: their coffee comes from Allpress!

Downsides: I don’t really think there are any!

Raw Press

Raw Press

Location: Belgravia, SW1X 9AL

Average price: £30/ breakfast for 2, a bit more for lunch

Type of menu: vegetarian, raw food, healthy

Raw Press

Interior: Simple and fresh with green plants and pastel details

Raw Press

Recommendations: Treat yourself to the acai bowl from the all day breakfast menu, it’s lush! They also have a great lunch buffet and a generous selection of healthy treats so you can always try something new!

Raw Press

What I love about the place: Super friendly staff and tons of different options when you’re trying to loose weight or simply eat healthily. Raw Press is definitely worth checking out if you’re in the area.

Raw Press

Downsides: In my opinion the cafe is quite pricey for what you get but then again, when you’re in Belgravia that’s sort of taken for granted, isn’t it.

Palm Vaults

Palm Vaults

Location: Hackney, E8 1HY

Palm Vaults

Average price: No idea! I’m sorry, it sort of sucks but when you get your eyes on their paradise interior and food presentation out of this world, prices will be the last thing to think about! I guess the price range must be something quite typical for the area, not the cheapest one but oh-so flipping’ worth the hype!

Palm Vaults

Type of menu: cafe menu with insanely looking cakes and smoothies. And yes, these are Crosstown doughnuts!

Palm Vaults

Palm Vaults

Interior: O. My. Gosh. Can I move in please?! Bricks, pink and dozens of plants everywhere give this place that lovely Cali vibe with never-ending summer which, being in London you’ll soon realise, is twice as precious!

Palm Vaults

Palm Vaults

Recommendations: Whatever you go for, you’ll love it. Smoothie bowls are insane here, so are drinks and cakes. My perfect breakfast would be the the pink yoghurt bowl, Unleash The Dragon smoothie and tons of coffee of course! My only advice is: arrive early. As early as possible or you’ll spend half a day in the queue!

Palm Vaults

Palm Vaults

What I love about the place: Every bloody thing! Lush food, breathtaking presentation, cool interior, friendly staff, nice books and relaxed atmosphere. Oh, I’m also a huge fan of ‘no laptop at weekend’ policy! And one of the prettiest regular takeaway cups I’ve ever seen!

Palm Vaults

Downsides: There are two. First of all it’s such a shame Palm Vaults can’t sort get rid off all the neighbours and make the place three times as big. Or perhaps four. Another one is the food is sooooooooo pretty that it almost makes you feel guilty to eat it! Yet for the same reason you’re not able to resist which gets flipping Antigone out of you!

Palm Vaults

What is your favourite spot for a lazy Saturday breakfast- can you beat mine? 😉 x

  • Yup. Now I sure am hungry irrespective of the fact I just ate my breakfast like an hour ago. Haha! I would love to visit there and try out some of those yummy smoothies or pastries! 🙂

  • Omg! That all looks so amazing! 🙂 Love all the colors and different options. And I love a place that uses local ingredients, it’s such a good way to support your community.

  • The Palm Vault looks ever so fancy, I love the look of the smoothie. But the first two veggie breakfasts look amazing, we need to go at some point when we are less broke aha. Beautiful photos as well x x

    My husband and I always go out for Sunday brunch .. so it’s fun to see what other places serve. I sure wish we lived closer. I couldn’t help but smile at the no laptop policy (yay!) and the pretty pink to-go cups. Everything is better in a pretty container!

    • What a lovely habit of yours! And I agree, pretty containers just add to the whole experience, don’t they! 🙂 x

  • Wowsers that looks all pretty delicious!! Are that yellow toasters on the tables?! Never saw anything like that before!
    Think when we visit London, we wouldn’t see any of the city but only go coffee shop hopping 😉
    And a no laptop in the weekend is a pretty good policy ( although i break all the rules on that one 😉

    • Haha, there’s so much to see here but a coffee (and pastry!) stop is definitely a must! And I can understand the laptop situation, when you don’t work regular hours there’s really no such thing as weekend! 😉 Xx

  • Cassidy Slockett

    Oh my goodness this place looks absolutely amazing! I especially loved the selection of sweets! Plus, I’m a huge coffee fan, especially when it looks so pretty!

  • Marysia

    Wow! The food looks amazing 🙂 <3

  • Oh my gosh! I am so hungry now! This all looks amazing! I love that smoothie with the flowers in it – it looks too pretty to eat.

  • Melanie Edjourian
