Bird’s Eye Review : Wild Food Cafe

wild-food-cafeI have no idea why it has taken me so long to check this place out. Perhaps, it is the rather large queues that seem to pour out of the restaurant every time I try to visit but I now know why.  I loved this place.  My friends and I did have to wait over half an hour for a table but it was definitely worth the wait.

The cafe, situated in the heart of Neal’s Yard in Covent Garden, can be reached from a narrow set of stairs in the courtyard.  Wild Food Cafe is a raw-centric food restaurant.  As much as possible, they source their ingredients from independent suppliers and organic producers.

The seating is communal but that did not bother me as everyone was just checking out each others food and being inspired to order next door’s yummy dish when it arrived in all it’s impressive glory.

I did get a bite of the falafel too which was beyond delicious.  And then it was time for coffee and dessert. It wasn’t a difficult choice with raw peanut butter cake on the menu.  This was decadent, creamy, rich and fantastic.  I could actually dedicate a whole blog post to this cake alone, but I won’t.  Suffice to say, it was definitely the best raw dessert I’ve ever tried and I’m going to try to emulate this at home. (good luck me).  It has to be said the coffee with coconut milk was also rather wondrous.

I would love to know if you have been to Wild Food cafe and if you have any menu recommendations. I can’t wait to go back. http://wildfoodcafe.com
