HOT: Daylesford Organic Cafe, 44B Pimlico Road, Pimlico SW1W 8LP

SW1 is the land of perfect hair, nonchalant designer handbags and prams that cost more than my monthly salary - and the cool airy marble of Daylesford Organic is the perfect venue for such a postcode. London bloomed some bright sunshine for a change, so Vanessa and I caught up on months of news over brunch at one of the coveted outdoor tables. Our food was fresh and delicious: creamy mackeral tartare and smoky fish with the salad leaves, summer berries with champagne jelly and mint, flaky croissant and a large bowl of granola with a decorative dash of fresh fruit. The service left something to be desired though - a bit slow, and they got our bill wrong twice.

Update October 2008: My local Maida Vale branch of Daylesford Organic is even better. Eleven pounds gets you the perfect weekend breakfast: lots of fresh bread and jam, granola with milk/yoghurt, fresh juice and tea/coffee, all served with a friendly smile in the soothing greenery of Clifton Nurseries.
