REVIEW: Organic Gossip

Took a run with Al (Mr CityHippy to you) down to the Organic Café 'Gossip' today just off the King's Road near where we work (at the start of Sydney Street) in London's fashionable Chelsea.

Gotta say was impressed by the setup (we sat in the conservatory) and by the extensive (sorry did I say expensive?) menu! The prices might be Chelsea but the food is definitely 'of the land'.

Gossip boasts a superb range from breakfast porridge to light bites and full on winter warmers & desserts. Al & I had a gorgeous organic hot chocolate as a starter and we shared (well Al had the lion's share but if you know Al that will make sense) a bread basket of gorgeous breads with
fantastic organic oil and balsamic vinegar. We followed that up with the tastiest BLT I have ever had whilst Al had the Lamb with something potatoey. His vegetarianism is sporadic. Both came with an excellent side of organic greens garnishing the plate.

The whole thing was organic including the WholeEarth Cola drink Al had.

Unfortunately they do not have a website (how quaint?) so you will just have to take my word for it and pop down if you are nearby. Worth an outing although if your budgets are like ours then special occasions only. We spent £30 (!!!) on lunch. Sheesh! Nice lunch though.

If you like the food they serve then after a meal you can stroll along to the nearby Organic Shop owned by the same folks where you can buy pretty much every edible product I could think of buying! As well as the finest quality supplements as well!

Green hugs
