A healthy, homemade flavour comes to the London enclave of Islington thanks to The Blue Legume Café, Restaurant and Juice Bar. Situated on the always busy Upper Street, The Blue Legume is an all day venue where guests enjoy everything from leisurely breakfasts accompanied by the broadsheets to quick business lunches and dinners with friends. The quirky interior of The Blue Legume suits its wholesome approach to food well somehow, the exposed brick walls, scrubbed wooden flooring and mix ‘n’ match interior design featuring mirrors mounted on the ceiling, blackboard special menus and painted wood furnishings in keeping with the home-spun food and drinks that are the venue’s real selling point. The Blue Legume sells a wide variety of healthy Mediterranean dishes ranging from burgers for meat eaters and veggies alike to hearty salads and simple main dishes featuring wholesome ingredients from quality sources.

My old brunch fave (S&M) closed, so when I found myself on a Sunday morning with no food in the flat, I panicked. Where was a girl to go to have eggs made for her? I took a chance on The Blue Legume and they certainly delivered.

I had the salmon salad and fried feta cheese app. Both were delicious. Others in my party got the grilled tuna steak (amazing), the goat cheese salad and the falafel burger. The wine selection was great as well. Very tasty, very cute. Loved it.
As many of you know, brunch is my favourite meal of the day... followed very closely by breakfast. There's something to shovelling delicious food into your mouth at the start of the day (even if the day starts in the afternoon, mind you), that's akin to a celebration of life.
So on a swelteringly sunny Saturday morning, I found myself at this particular Blue Legume to meet a friend for...more
This is the second location--the first one being in Stoke. It looks super-cute and brunchy and happened to be open for dinner so we jumped in.
The menu has burgers, salads, mains, pastas and risottos. The cafe is cute, the service was decent, but the food was just mediocre. The fishcake inside was undercooked and mushy and the tartar sauce was kind of gross. I had a grilled halloumi...more
