My boyfriend introduced me to this little place in Kensington and I was surprised to find out it was Vegan! He is a total carnivore (as am I) but I definitely understand what the hype is about. They make a variety of interesting spreads, bake their breads fresh in house and offer vegan fare in a delicious and outstanding way. Be wary during busy hours, which can offer very slow and nonchalant service but the food is worth it. Other items that I have yet to try are the morrocan stew and the sweet potato date muffins.

Sesame Tempeh Sandwich
Scrumptiously delicious and perhaps the best thing on the menu. Tempeh is a type of soy protein, like tofu but I find the texture firmer and the taste is evidently different. The tempeh is savoury and meaty and is topped with alfalfa sprouts, marinated tomatoes (similar to a bruschetta), greens and a creamy lemon tahini. The bread here is fresh, fluffly and grilled lightly with olive oil = carb goodness.
Anyone who is a fan of avocados will enjoy this sandwich thoroughly. I thought it was a touch bland considering how flavourful the tempeh sandwich was but overall pretty tasty. (I would recommend hot sauce and extra lemon tahini).
