Organic food is trustworthy – fertiliser-free with legislated standards under European law – meaning a license is required to grow, process, and market organic products. Not only will you reap the health benefits of organic produce, but you will be part of a worldwide phenomenon heralding the organic label. Eat with a conscience and try one of London’s five best restaurants for farm to fork.

Californian inspired food with organic ingredients and ethical sourcing are what makes Hally’s the golden establishment of Parsons Green. Anna Halliday and husband Philip Beatty were inspired to bring a part of their American road trip to London. Dining at Hally’s feels like you’re in a Californian beach house where surfers would flock to the front terrace. Their dishes range from smashed avocado on sourdough toast with ricotta to Cauliflower and aged cheddar omelette with a watercress and cauliflower salad.
Daylesford at Selfridges Food Hall brings a taste of the organic farm to London’s West End. With this prime location there is no excuse to opt out of an organic meal while shopping.

The Natural Kitchen‘s originated as an organic food shop. It has since developed into one of London’s go-to healthy lunch venues. Their wholesome and healthy options leave you spoiled for choice, and their fresh meat counter should not be ignored. Whether you opt to eat at their cafe or stop by the deli, don’t pass up the opportunity to grab a delicious snack here.

The Gallery Café is a community-run project attached to St. Margaret’s House in Bethnal Green. A cosy sanctuary which prides itself on offering vegan and vegetarian dishes, it spreads the message that vegan doesn’t mean missing out on your favourite foods. Their produce comes from local suppliers; bread delivered from a local artisan baker by bicycle, coffee roasted down the street, and vegetables from nearby Old Spitalfields Market. Teapigs and organic milk are also used to make a delectable brew. In addition, their on-the-go food options use 100% recyclable packaging. As the cafe’s popularity grows, they encourage local enterprises to join their environmental ethos. After your thoroughly tasty meal, channel your inner god/goddess at a yoga class or visit the music, poetry and art exhibitions.
