Healthy Food Guide: London Bridge
After 2 wonderful years on the river in South West London, by February our growing team meant that Neat's Battersea home was getting a little crowded, so it was time to relocate our HQ to the Southbank. Over the last few months we’ve been getting to know our new neighbourhood, which has been the perfect excuse to explore the best coffee shops and egg-tastic brunches in this side of town! So, here are some of our favourite healthy food hotspots near London Bridge….
Pancakes don’t sound too healthy do you say? Think again! These buttermilk pancakes might not be a salad, but with organic flours and well-sourced ingredients, they’re about as nutritious as pancakes get (except of course, if you whipped up a Neat protein pancake stack)! They’ve got veggie, vegan, meat, sweet & savoury options as well as sweet and savoury too – they’ve got a little something for everyone. We love the veggie breakfast…
Located right on London Bridge, Grind has millennial written all over it, and we can’t deny that we love it. Neon signage, Instagrammable interiors and classic Aussie style food? Check! And if you’re feeling a little wild, they make a pretty decent espresso martini too!
Coffee snobs – this one’s for you! Housed in an old metal box factory, it’s warehouse-style interiors and relaxed vibe make it the perfect spot for a breakfast meeting or a long, lazy, weekend brunch. Our recommendation? Go for the green or baked eggs, served in a skillet with a side of flatbread, and a V60 filter.
It might not be in the same league as Caravan, but for anyone in need of a quick bite, this is our mid-week lunch go-to. Build your own salad or pick up one of their tasty falafel hot pots and enjoy the simple pleasure of how they name your order after different celebrities. Who doesn’t love picking up Beyoncé’s food after all?
Getting take-out noodles after a hard day at the office just got a whole lot healthier! Indulge in oodles of noodles (home-made, freshly sourced noodles to be precise) at this spot just near Borough Market.
Borough’s best-kept secret, this hidden little spot does some cracking eggs on toast and a coffee for just £5! With such a bargain on our hands, we don’t feel bad about saying yes to extra avo. What’s more? Sit out on their charming hidden roof terrace whilst the BBQ up a couple sausages – it’s about as authentic as central London gets.
Avocado fanatics will be in pure heaven at this take on a proper taqueria. Home-made tortillas are used to create their famous tacos, an endless list of house salsas. This is as close as you’re going to get to the real deal when it comes to eating authentic Mexican in London.
The Wright Brother’s is well-established in the city, and their original branch just on the edge of Borough market won’t be a disappointment. Best known for their oysters, which are a heavy feature of the menu, you can expect a great variety of fresh seafood with a focus on great ingredients, cooked well.
