After living in London for over two years now, I'm always surprised when I get to visit parts of the city which I still haven't seen. Yesterday my sister and I had a day out as we hadn't seen each other since Christmas when we were both home. After meeting at Ladbroke Grove, we headed over to Notting Hill to go for brunch at Daylesford, a lovely little farm run cafe.
Daylesford have a few locations around London, including a counter in the food hall in Selfridges which can be handy. Inside the Notting Hill branch there's both a cafe and food & homeware shop, where I could have easily purchased numerous things. Having tried only their juices beforehand (delicious but a little expensive), I was excited to try their food. I tend to go for the same thing whenever I go for brunch, as I rarely keep eggs in my flat and like to treat myself to them. So I went for the scrambled eggs and bacon on rye bread, as I've been trying to keep wheat out of my diet as much as possible recently. Kayleigh went for blue cheese, courgette and leafy greens quiche which was on the specials board, with a side of the raw slaw and kale salads. After trying the quiche, I was very jealous as it was delicious and not your typical M&S quiche.
After brunch, we walked along the canal towards Kings Cross where we came across a few locations we hadn't been to before, such as Little Venice and the canal inside London Zoo and Regents Park. Little Venice was so beautiful and definitely worth a visit, however I believe there isn't actually much to do there. The walk along the canal is something I would suggest, even walking further along from where we stopped in the summer would be a great idea as it will bring you out at East London.
On Friday afternoon, I made the Sweet Potato Brownies from Deliciously Ella's blog. They were both delicious and a disaster, but I will be eating them all week as a snack as I have so many. They're not a replacement for a brownie, there are better options out there, or just have a brownie if you want one. They're very strange in texture and taste, however I like them but my sister didn't, which is weird as it's usually the other way round with food for us two.
What have you done this week?
