CT Coffee & Coconuts | Amsterdam

CT Coffee and coconuts - Amsterdam - lunch
Now that I’m spending some time in Amsterdam as part of my maternity leave I finally have time to check out what’s new and fun in one of my favourite cities. CT’s is situated in an old twenties style cinema building so think extreme high ceilings, various floors and open plan everything.. A unique space. They did a really good job in making it feel relaxed with a natural look while still keeping it buzzing. Love the black & white photographs on the walls. Probably one of the reasons why it feels good is because it’s almost always busy – be prepared to wait in line for a table on the weekends. On the menu are fresh juices, smoothies, herbal teas, granola, coconut pancakes ( made from almond flour), different salads, a selection of bites and they do dinner too, all very delicious.

Nama Raw Food London Notting Hill
A little raw food place that just opened in Notting Hill. I’m not usually a massive raw food lover but I like to eat healthy and try new things. This restaurant offers an all day breakfast, lunch and dinner menu, as well as super food juices and healthy snacks. We had the almond pancakes and the falafel wrap which were really good. The good thing is you don’t feel bloated when you leave, I even felt more energised. They serve pizzas & pastas for dinner, the raw way. No wheat, gluten, dairy, meat nor fish. All vegan, raw and with a great taste. 2 notes: I wouldn’t recommend coming here for a hungover brunch, and I think I’d leave my boyfriend home too 😉 Open late on Thursdays & Fridays. 110 Talbot Road | Tube: Westbourne Park | Tel: +44 (0)  207 313 4638 | Website | ££
