Raw Press Cafe with Pearl and Groove

As I mentioned in my last post, on Sunday I was lucky enough to be invited to a bloggers brunch at Raw Press Cafe, courtesy of London Health Week, where I was able to try out lots of tasty treats!

Raw Press Cafe

Raw Press is located just below Wolf and Badger  (one of my favourite stores to browse upcoming new fashion designers) on Dover Street. Founded by cousins Jack and Toby Graham, they are all about raw, organic and cold-pressed juices, served up in a relaxed and cosy cafe.

Cold Pressed Juice - their speciality!
As I entered, I was welcomed with a lovely freshly made skinny cappuccino and after a bit of meeting and greeting, I chose to went to explore the delicious drinks they had on offer. With everything from 'Super Greens' (Millie MacIntosh's favourite) to cold pressed 'Coffee & Mylk' (Professor Green's drink of choice) it was a tough decision, but eventually I decided on the delicious 'Uprooted' - a blend of carrot and other root veg.

My selection
After choosing my juice, we tucked into a healthy brunch with amazing goodies supplied by Pearl and Groove.....


Starting out as a bakery on Chiswick High Street, West London, Pearl and Groove have now launched a pop up by Old Street tube station, and also deliver tasty cakes throughout the city. The founder, Serena Whitfield, was absolutely lovely, and gave us a quick low-down on the healthy treats she'd provided us with...






What was really lovely to hear was  the personal story behind her two ranges. The Pearl line, which is sugar, gluten and diary free, was inspired by her Mum - a glamorous, active, health enthusiast, who gained the nickname of 'pearlie' with her gem like characteristics!  Her Dad, on the other hand, is nicknamed Groove, due to his 'cool dude' persona. A chocolatier and master confectioner, the Groove range is therefore a little bit more virtuous - still gluten free, but with a slightly naughtier hint of sugar and diary fat!



All in all, a very tasty yet nutritious brunch, perfect for kicking off London Health Week! Visit www.londonhealthweek.co.uk to get your wristbands, giving you access to events around the city, and pop into Raw Press and Pearl and Groove to refuel in between!
