As you could see from my Insta Stories (if we’re not following each other on Instagram click here, I’d love to connect with you!) of last weekend… Yassmine and I are finally back with our Ordinary London series! This time we went around Hampstead, also known as Hampsted Village and this definition perfectly fits the style of this area since (as you can see from the pics) while wandering around this area you’ll kind of forget to be in London!
Indeed, as soon as you’ll step out of the tube (or the bus 😉 ) you’ll have this “village” feeling, both due to the style of the houses/building but mostly because of the nearly absence of traffic.
When we arrived it was lunch time our first concern was food! Since it wasn’t my first time there and I had already in mind a healthy-spot we headed immediately there! This amazing place is called LLS cafè-deli and it’s not only a lovely place itself where to work/read but it also serves delicious home made food.
On their menu there are mainly organic, vegan and vegetarian (with gluten-free options) food and drinks plus they also have a vast choice of raw & vegan pastry! So you’ll definitely need a moment to read and choose!
Yassmine and I opted for a green soup with coconut milk and a zucchini spaghetti salad with poached eggs and seeds!
While last time I was there, it was around tea time and my friend and I tried our first matcha latte (with almond milk!), a (gluten free & vegan) coconut flour with chocolate chips cookie and a piece of raw, vegan and gluten free spirulina cheesecake (which yes it sounds weird but it was very good actually!)!
The interior design of the cafè is also to cite since it’s full of accurate and lovely details which give you a kind of warm and magical feeling.
After being satisfied with our lunch, the “wandering around” part started. I discovered that Hampsted it’s definitely the perfect place where to go cute-door hunting!
Especially during this blossom season, all the houses and gardens give their best and you just can’t stop yourself from taking loads of pictures!
If instead of walking you prefer to chill at the park then at the opposite side of Hampstead “center” there’s the famous Hampstead Heath, a large park covering 320 hectares!
So if you’re looking for a place where to disconnect for a while from the busy-city life, this lovely area positioned in the north-west of London is the perfect solution!
