Vegetarian Brunch Spot in Notting Hill
Farmacy is my favourite brunch spot right now. Hands down they do the best avocado toast in town.
Smooth avocado sits atop a toasted multigrain muffin, garnished with pea shoots, bean sprouts and a recurring favourite of mine, smoked paprika; culminating into avocado toast perfection.
It’s a light meal unless you order some poached eggs with it, leaving room to indulge in one of their starters or desserts. Desserts are on a separate menu, so don’t forget to ask for it after you finish your main.
On another occassion, I tried the English Breakfast and shared a cinnamon roll and crumble for dessert. It was delicious and light enough that it didn’t leave me with the lethargic feeling that follows a meaty English Breakfast.
To drink I had the Fire Starter syringe shot. Underestimating how spicy cayenne is, I chased it with their Lemon-aid. My friend went for an Iced Matcha and almond milk latte. Does it get any healthier than this place?
On my next trip, I’m going to try the Mexican Earth Bowl, having watched with envy as numerous orders were brought out from the kitchen. It looks seriously good. I’m not vegetarian but honestly I didn’t miss having meat at this place not one bit.
Note: Farmacy are walk-ins only, but getting a table is easy before noon and probably a 20-30 minute wait during the 1-2 pm busy hour.
