Breakfast at Farmstand, Covent Garden

Breakfast at Farmstand Covent Garden

Covent Garden is one of my most treasured spots in London. It just feels so alive. The theatres, Royal Opera House, street performances, cobbled streets, piazza. It is everything magical and nostalgic about London in one.

As well as beautiful historical loveliness there are also a bunch of new foodie spots popping up all over the place. The lovely people at Farmstand invited me over to check out their breaky last Saturday. I grabbed mi gal Fifi and headed over to CG early doors.

After taking a few snaps in the surprisingly warm morning sunshine, we wandered up to Farmstead for some grub.

The place was adorned with plants, marble table tops (always a winner) and soft teal blue seats. Breakfast was being rustled up before us as we made our choice. They also do lunch and dinner FYI which you can also have delivered, so super handy if you want something nourishing that ain’t Pret. One thing I love is that they are super friendly to the environment, everything is sustainable, which in 2017, everything really should be, ay?

I went for the banana bread with coconut yogurt and berries. The banana bread was warm, it was tasty and I am 100% on board with cake for breakfast. Fifi went for quinoa porridge and we both went for a green juice because obvs, healthy blogger cliches n all that. We had almond milk cappuccinos and it was all very lovely indeed.

They also kindly gave us a metal water bottle which saves you from spending money on £1 bottles of water erry day, which ain’t good for the world and ain’t particularly good for you, especially if like me you like to use the same water bottle a few days running. This baby has been by my side ever since! (LOL after writing that sentence, I left my bottle at my yoga class. Plonker ain’t I?)

We strolled off into the sunshine full and content.

  • I’ve been meaning to try it there because it’s right next to LSE. I have a soft spot for banana bread so it’s now at the top of my list. I also hate buying coconut yogurt because it’s so expensive so in my head paying for it at breakfast is ok (logic? nope but don’t care haha).
    Your smile is contagious babe! Keep it up xxxx
