If you’re not familiar with David Bez’s gorgeous salad bowls I suggest you head over to Instagram – pronto. These little works of art all came about after Bez got fed up of the lack of options available out there and started making lunch at his desk. From humble beginnings, David now has two books out and a café in the glorious location of Neal’s Yard. So far, so impressive.
The menu includes all day breakfast options (although, not as you know it), smoothies, juices, sweet treats and of course, salad bowls.
On a warm day the glass front is thrown open to the elements, letting a little bit of Covent Garden in, making it the perfect place for a spot of people watching.
Just across the courtyard from the wild food café, although both have a similar ethos when it comes to food, Salad Pride manages to feel more contemporary – hitting the nail on the head when it comes to understanding how we want to eat nowadays. You don’t need to be a vegan warrior to appreciate the pretty plates of gluten free, sugar free food.
We opted for a filling bowl of courgetti with roasted red peppers, broccoli, chickpeas, seeds, micro greens and a tasty paprika dressing.
If breakfast is more your thing you can get your hands on avocado on toast all day long or the sweet tooth’s amongst us will appreciate the coconut bowl with quinoa, banana, goji berries, cocoa powder, date syrup, coconut flakes and coconut yoghurt. YUM.
Wash it all down with a fresh raw juice or up the protein with a creamy tahini super smoothie.
Come rain or shine, let Salad Pride brighten up lunchtime.
