Set up in 2011, we're a small and passionate band trying to shake up the image of salads. We sold our colourful salads at local fairs and catered events at the Lexi Cinema, Kensal, before building a trailer (harder than it looks!) and selling the salads at markets in Covent Garden amongst others in 2015. Looking for a place to lay our mandoline we rented a phonebox in beautiful Bloomsbury Square, put shelves on the inside of the door, a fridge inside and had a successful summer in 2016. It gave us the confidence to go for it in 2017, opening at Battersea Studios and St James's Park station shopping arcade that summer. We continue to do pop-ups, weddings, cater office meetings and supply other cafes and are hunting for our next permanent spot...
We want to look after ourselves (most of the time) but we want to have a good meal too, not an expensive, limp, miserly portion of leaves which leaves us hungry and disappointed.
We enjoy creating salads with complementary flavours and textures - intestinal anti-depressants (not scientifically proven!) - incorporating family tricks, recipes, secrets - our mums are the best cooks right?!
We use all the best fresh ingredients to create tasty and filling salads, with fine combinations of flavours and textures. Full of proteins, vitamins and minerals, we don't undo that hard work with unhealthy dressings, rather sensible amounts of vinegars, citrus, oils and herbs. Handy if you're trying to be good.
We make the salads locally using seasonal produce and serve into bio-degradable and recyclable packaging. So we're trying to be good too.
