The Wildflower Cafe, Westbourne Grove

The Wildflower Cafe is the perfect spot for a first date.
Boys take note: if you want to appeal to her romantic side, this quirky little place will show how thoughtful and off the grid, you are.
If the lady likes to see and be seen in poshy-woshy surroundings, stop reading now.
But if she openly admits that she likes good food (as she should), make a reservation! 

As the name reveals, the Café looks more of a flower shop on the outside, with buckets full of colourful flowers covering the purple façade. I had to look twice to make sure we were at the right place before going in.
Inside it's cosy, with mis-matched furniture and little cute details; flowers in teapots and vases, pots and plates all stacked next to each other - good conversation starters.
The lights are soft and little candles give that extra glow to each table, so you'll soon find yourselves leaning in to talk to each other.
We were not on a first date off course, we were there with friends, but this place made us all feel very comfortable and relaxed on a Saturday evening.

The best feature is the new evening menu. I proclaimed that I could have absolutely everything on there, it all sounded so great, kind of what your friends would cook if they invited you around for a dinner party! And although I am not a dessert person, I was very keen to try the Wildflower meringue with passion & lime curd.
In the end I had the pan-fried sea bass with baby carrots, cauliflower pure and new potatoes. It was cooked to perfection, with lovely buttery aftertaste. Oh, and get the twice cooked fries as a side, they are really fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside, simple, yummy & effective!
My chatty husband had the saddle of lamb, stuffed with apricots and pinenuts and when he went quite for a while, we knew he was really enjoying his food!
This is not going to be a long post, because I do not have much more to say other than... the food at the Wildflower Café is fresh and delicious, with the attention to detail that you would get in a big restaurant but with no-fuss surroundings that will allow you to actually enjoy your food!

All mains are around £12-£15, which is very reasonably priced, considering the area and the actual quality of the ingredients.
So our next mission is to go try their brunch menu on a weekend, if you beat us to the punch let us know!
