Described as a ‘multi-sensory’ dining experience, Nama is a beautifully decorated raw food café located in the charming area of Notting Hill. Here, the menu is full of interesting, tasty dishes including falafel wraps, Thai coconut curry and an incredible sushi platter made from Kohlrabi ‘rice’ with ‘roasted’ Asian mushrooms. The fermented blueberry cheesecake and chocolate ganache tart are also heavenly.

Wild Food Cafe is a vibrant raw-centric cafe and juice bar located in Covent Garden in Central London. This sunshine filled cafe is famous for its raw veggie burger made with a magic mix of super healthy ingredients including olives, shiitake mushrooms, dulse and butternut squash. The Ayurvedic super salad is another specialty that is jam packed with superfood ingredients including leafy greens, activated seeds, pesto, courgetti and seaweed.
Inspiral Lounge is an eccentric earthy cafe located in the heart of Camden. The cafe has a festive vibe with electro music softly pumping as diners sip avocado green smoothies and devour vegan nut roasts, pancakes, superfood salads and cheesecakes. One of the coolest things about Inspiral Lounge is the free kale chips and dessert samples they have out each day. You could easily fill up on these alone! The lounge also doubles as a venue for music, performance art and health and wellness events.
Organic Cafe Triyoga is actually a bit of a secret! Located inside the amazing TriYoga Studios on Kings Road, Chelsea, this small cafe is really only know to the yogis who attend classes. It is however, one of the most creative, delicious and affordable raw food cafes around and the ladies who run it are truly lovely. Here, you can enjoy a variety of salads, raw mini pizzas, avocado tacos, delicious coconut carrot cake slices and chocolate brownies. There is also a cafe at TriYoga’s Primrose Hill location.
Juice Baby is located just a few doors away from the TriYoga Studio on Kings Road. This is the perfect place to grab a cashew milk coffee or one of their incredible superfood juices for a quick energy burst. Everything on the menu is made on site and is available takeaway. The kale salad with sesame dressing and avocado is one of their signature dishes and definitely a must-try. For a sweet treats, there are so options but our pick would have to be the raw lemon blueberry cheesecake made with cashews, dates, coconut and vanilla. Yum!
