In London for a few days. We were staying in Notting Hill, where it turns out the Jamie Oliver juggernaut continues -with a new venture that has opened near Notting Hill Gate tube station.
Part cafe/cooking school there also a retail section offering pre-made meals, takeaway and larder.
Recipease brings Jamie’s philosophies about cooking to life. There are cooking classes for kids and adults.
There is delicious pre-made meals you can take away and cook at home. There is tip notch breads and condiments made on site and a whole host of Jamie branded products.
The coffee was excellent 🙂 We shared a non gluten-free bacon and egg roll – which was ok, but nothing outstanding. Maybe we chose wrong. The next visit we had spicy Guacamole on toast (which was delish) along with creamy mushrooms on toast, which was lovely. Both of these serves were huge and offered good value.
Unfortunately gluten-free options were very limited – ie nothing.
The atmosphere though was great, and we enjoyed our experience. I wouldn’t suggest you traipse across the city just to come here but if you are fan of Jamie Oliver (and frankly who isn’t) and desperate for a great coffee then I recommend.
Coffee – 5 out of 5
Atmosphere – 5:5
