THE GOOD LIFE EATERY

Lunch can make or break your day, especially when you are ravenous. Last weekend, when I needed something powerful to knock the effects of Friday night on the head, I found a special little place – The Good Life Eatery.

Every part of my body was shouting fry up however when walking on Sloane avenue we passed the newly opened Good Life Eatery, clearly very popular given the queue outside in the unrelenting rain! Typically British, we saw a queue and had to join it. Waited patiently in the rain, we were encouraged by other diners leaving informing us it was worth the wait.

The slickly managed operation meant that within minutes our orders were being taken, and we were sent to find a table with a numbered wooden spoon. The GLE is a health-nuts mecca, all the buzz words were up on the menu – raw, vegan, macha, spirulina, cold pressed, shots, dairy and gluten free, you name it.

Regardless of whether these things float your boat, the menus have dishes to please the most serious vegans through to a protein hungry rugger bugger.

We ordered most of the things on the menu since the wait had increased our appetites. I would have liked to have said that all of the dishes were a resounding success had it not been for the matcha latte, which met me with a taste that I am not sure I can describe – algae infused pond water comes close.

EGG WHITE FRITTATA Kale, Yellow Courgette, Butternut Squash, Basil, Red Onion, Omega Seeds with Basil Almond Pesto GF DF £7.50

The café has a cramped feel to it, you’ll be hurriedly sat at reclaimed wooden table (what else). While you eat your meal you’re being watched by an auditorium of prospective diners eyeing up your spot and guestimating how long it will take for you to finish your egg white frittata. You just need to put your blinkers on and enjoy the dishes because their efforts to make seriously healthy food taste good are not bad!

All of the food was superb, fresh and seemed to have medicinal properties since my hangover vanished…
