Linnaean – Nine Elms

You had me at pancakes and pampering 🥞💆🏼‍♀️ {ad}

Why be just an adorable veggie cafe when you can also be a hairdresser, nail salon, beauty bar *and* retail boutique?! 🛍

I popped down to @linnaeanliving to see what their vegan offering was like but kiiinda wish I’d stayed for a manicure too 💅🏽

Here’s what I ate:
🥐 Croissant w/ chocolate sauce and toasted almonds
💰 £6
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes. Flaky, soft and you can dip it in rich choc. SOLD.

🥞 Signature matcha pancakes w/ fresh fruits, homemade granola & matcha yogurt
💰 £10
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes. It’s not very often I choose a sweet dish as my fave but this was fab. The yogurt was almost like icing but not sickly -pancakes were thick & fluffy
🏆 Fave dish

🌱 Stir fry w/ orange glazed organic tempeh, fresh vegetables, pickles and toasted sesame seeds
💰 £13
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes – w/ changes. I liked the flavours and generous amount of tempeh but it was a little heavy on the soy sauce and needed some kind of grain to soak it up

🍄 Buckwheat crêpe w/ leek béchamel, sautéed wild mushrooms & fresh leaves
💰 £12
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes w/ changes. Salty, smoky, nice hits of garlic. I liked the crunch from the smoky bites. The flavours were subtle so could’ve been stronger. Good for a lunch – I’d order a side if having for dinner

🍰 Strawberry sponge cake
💰 £6
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes. Moist & tasty
