poached eggs

The Good Life Eatery, Chelsea

High-end hippie food done very well. I absolutely love The Good Life Eatery. The post-gym bunny queue is usually quite long but the coffee, smoothies and delicious food is definitely worth the wait.

From almond milk flat whites to matcha lattes, smoothies and cold-pressed juices, The Good Life can quench any thirst. And if you’re not hungry when you get there, you will be when you see everything they have to offer on the menu!

We shared an avocado, quinoa, kale and roasted sweet potato salad with poached eggs and smoked salmon on gluten-free bread. I felt positively virtuous afterwards.

We didn’t want to give up our table but we soon finished our coffees.

So we ordered another round! Why not?

And then couldn’t help but be tempted by all the gluten-free goodies on the way out. Brownies and even croissants on offer here. I’d never seen a gluten-free croissant before!

Although we felt sad leaving the hum of The Good Life and our lovely little table, I know I’ll be back very soon!

The Modern Pantry

If you like your juices freshly blended, your flat whites strong yet foamy, your bread gluten-free and your eggs perfectly poached, head to Clerkenwell for breakfast at The Modern Pantry. This place does a seriously good brunch.

We sat in the late Autumn sun outside and read the extensive menu, trying to decide which option we could leave out. Halloumi? Chorizo? Wilted spinach? In the end we just ordered them all!

Before the food came we ordered more coffees and a Matcha almond milk latte – basically superfood! Energised enough for our feast, we tucked into the breakfasts in all their glory.

This is now a firm favourite on my list, and very friendly to the gluten-free peeps. I’m already planning my next visit!
