What: The Yeo Valley Cafe
In a nutshell: Organic farm canteen opens in London
Summing it all up: Organic Somerset dairy company Yeo Valley sets its sights on London opening an all day organic cafe in the new West Walk development in Queensway.
At first glance, news that Yeo Valley are opening a cafe in Queensway doesn't sound all that exciting. Yoghurt for breakfast, lunch and tea, anyone? But the cafe opening up as part of the new West Walk scheme is actually the dairy company's second restaurant.
They opened the first, The Yeo Valley Canteen in the company's Somerset HQ in Blagdon back in 2015. They use organic meat and dairy and their Somerset cafe just got a four star award for having between 75-95% organic ingredients on its menus.
There's no word yet on what the London menu will feature, but we do know it's being put together by chef Paul Collins who has worked everywhere from The Dorchester to Cliveden and used to be the private chef to Sir Anthony and Lady Carole Bamford who own Daylesford. If it's anything like the Somerset original breakfasts might feature Denhay Back Bacon Sandwiches or Warm Scotch Pancakes with Yeo Valley Greek Style Yogurts and Fruit Compote while the lunch menu might stretch to Community Farm Squash, Brussel Sprout & Sage Risotto or a bowl of St Austell Bay Mussels cooked with Garlic, White Wine, Cream and Parsley Served with Skinny Fries.
