Burgers, sandwiches, drinks, and desserts. This place has an amalgamation of everything required for a hearty filling meal. If you’re near Covent Garden or Islington, make your way here for a satisfying meal.  

Once here, do not forget to try out the green burger with sweet potato wedges on the side.

Detox Kitchen 

Less of a restaurant and more of an upmarket deli, Detox Kitchen is the best place to be to grab a delicious lunch. All their dishes are devoid of any trace of wheat, refined sugar, and dairy. Their Soho branch goes a step further and features a downstairs fitness studio for the complete health nuts.

They have options ranging from salads, wraps to even smoothies.

Do not miss out on their banana bread with compote and COYO.

Wulf and Lamb 

With the slogan “Run with the wolves. Eat with the Lambs“, this place is situated in an unassuming corner on Sloane Square. Considered to be a cafe restaurant, it is a vegetarian’s dream. With almost the whole menu catered to be as kind to the planet as possible. 

The menu offers delicacies that range from Chilli’ Non’ Carne to the aromatic Thai curry served with sweet potato mash and finally fruit cheesecake(with the elimination of cheese).

If you’re going to try something, indulge in the Wulf Pie for a comforting and guilt-free experience.


The latest addition to the Nine Elms is the Linnaean. It is a focused health cafe, apothecary and beauty salon, all situated in one place. The inspiration behind the place is considered to be the Swedish naturalist Carl Linnaeus.

It is a beautiful space with every inch as Instagram as friendly as possible. The decor includes a flower ceiling, pastel pink bar seats, and hanging lights. 

Dishes, too, are like a work of art. Packed with superfoods and on-trend ingredients, this cafe believes in sustainability. The menu caters to every kind of diner out there vegan, gluten-free, or flexitarian. The choices are endless.

Must-try eats include Buddha bowls, Poke bowls, the super brunch, and homemade cocoa granola.


This is the health equivalent of a frozen yogurt station. A self serve format you go through vegetarian fuel-ling stations creating your own meal. This is an extremely dangerous undertaking as the items are priced by weight. Try stopping yourself from piling on the macaroni. It is more complicated than what it seems. 

 The dessert selection is also quite impressive with raw caramel flapjacks and walnut tart.

Do try everything when you’re here. Just be mindful of the weighing scale- quite literally.     

 Food is an experience, and it no longer has to be one-note or a compromise on your health. So, go explore your city, and I’m sure you can come out with a couple of surprising additions to this list.
