26 Grains

This Covent Garden cafe serves up healthy food, including an extensive range of porridge. Read More


Enjoy an Instagram-worthy breakfast at this popular cafe in Neal's Yard.

The porridge on offer here isn’t of the salt and water, Oliver Twist variety. Instead it's hand-rolled, ethically-sourced and paired with almond milk and seasonal ingredients for a delicious and healthy meal. The bowls come in sweet and savoury varieties, and the portions are generous, so it’s a great spot to fuel up for the day ahead.

The vegan focus here also means you can choose from a variety of plant milks to go with your coffee or tumeric latte.

I tried the open-faced chicken salad sandwich... more

If you come here, stick with the savory dishes and avoid the sweet! I love myself sweet porridge in the morning, but they make it way too sweet here.

Hidden within Neal's Yard, this place offers the perfect farm to table dishes and highlights simple grains, avocadoes, and sprouts. In my most recent trip here, I got the savoury porridge with kale, egg, avocado, sriracha and seriously can't... more

(1) Starting with the Green Smoothie, this tastes great for something so green!

(2) My first trip here was memorable since my view of porridge changed as soon as I tasted the savoury porridge with kale, egg, avocado and... more
