The other week Evan had an afternoon meeting in London, and so we went a bit early and headed to Notting Hill. Made famous, at least in my life, but the movie, it’s known as quintessential London with beautiful row houses (which I didn’t take a single picture – ugh!) and quaint little antique shops. We went on a Thursday, so it was unnaturally quiet and perfect.
We had lunch at a cute little cafe called Gail’s Artisan Bakery (the name even sounds posh!) and it was incredible! We opted to eat our lunch on a street curb as it is significantly more expensive to eat in than to carry out. We had the pre-made “sandwiches”; a falafel with lemon yogurt, avocado and tomato, and I think Evan had ham. The avocado and tomato was a little bland, but the falafel with lemon yogurt was incredible! Their bread was to die for, and it only cost about 10 pounds for the whole meal, which is a steal no matter where you are in London! The cafe even has their own baking cook book, which is now on my Christmas list, simply because their food was so good.
So, if you are ever in London, check it out. You won’t be disappointed!
