The Yeo Valley Cafe in London is situated in West London, in an idyllic spot if you are looking to have a fun day out. The extensive range of organic products that Yeo Valley Cafe has on offer is wonderful for the whole family to enjoy.
Whether it’s breakfast, lunch, dinner or just for a snack and a drink, Yeo Valley Cafe has a delicious menu on offer throughout the day. One of the things that I immediately noticed and loved about the cafe is the open fridges that are full of organic and healthy products.
Usually, within cafes and coffee shops that exhibit open fridges, the products are packed full of sugary items with no healthy alternatives. Yeo Valley Cafe is full of healthy and organic products to choose from. If you missed breakfast you can grab a scrumptious pot of Yeo Valley yoghurts and a hot drink from the counter. The beautiful wicker baskets are again a lovely little touch to the cafe so that you can do a little shopping without the plastic baskets. As we all know there is far too much plastic being used in the world, most of it for unnecessary reasons. The cafe has a range of butters, milk and dairy product that are on offer, which you can buy and then take home with you. In the future, I would really like to see the cafe offer a range of cheeses. You can buy various types of yoghurts, my favourite is the natural yoghurt.
If the Yeo Valley Cafe had have been around when I was a little girl, it would have been my favourite place ever! As a child, I would often go on playdates to friends houses and whenever I was asked what I would like to drink I remember being offered a wide variety of sugary beverages which I did not like. Sugary drinks and snacks used to make me feel ill and sick. This is because I have an intolerance to sugar, which is part of a lifetime condition that I have. Instead of sugar making me feel hyperactive or full of energy, it does the opposite and I start to feel tired and drained. This is due to the insulin resistance, therefore the tissues in my body don’t respond to sugar as a normal person’s body does. Instead, my body has to produce extra insulin to compensate. As a child, I would always ask my friends and their parents if I could instead have a glass of milk, and again for snacks and treats instead of chocolates and sweeties, I would ask for cheese! I was always the odd one out, but dairy products where my treats and I absolutely loved them! Yeo Valley Farm would have been a little paradise for me.
Dairy products remain an important product in my household for myself and for my children. All three of my children love their yogourts and dairy products. As a mother, it can be quite disturbing to realise that some of the products out there that are aimed at young children are packed full of sugars. What I truly love about Yeo Valley products is that they have stayed true to themselves and too their customers and have not tried to hide several forms of sugars within their food and used words that people don’t recognise to confuse them. Sweetness is added to the Yeo Valley yoghurts with organic fruit juices. Sugar levels in products are vital for a parent, particularly when you are food shopping or eating out.
My son was diagnosed with having hypermobility syndrome when he was a baby. Dairy products which are a high source of calcium and vitamin D are essential to his body, growth and health. Although there is no cure for hypermobility, calcium, Vitamin C and Vitamin D will help with the pains that he has to endure. Luckily he is my little yoghurt monster and he loves his dairy products also! So when I told my toddlers that we were going to The Yeo Valley Cafe for breakfast, they were very excited indeed!
On our breakfast menu, we had some delightful banana bread which my baby boy loved! We also had some fruit pots with yoghurt and my favourite, which was the overnight oats with coconut, and berries. I am very fond of oats and use them a lot in my recipes, they are a fantastic healthy choice and really good for nursing mothers. Albeit, I can honestly say that I have never tried overnight oats so palatable and tasty in my entire life! The recipe was pure perfection, to the point that I had to try and reproduce the dish for myself at home. My oldest son, Troy wasn’t able to come with us to the Yeo Valley Cafe for breakfast as he had to go to school. So when I recreated the oats with the Yeo Valley natural yoghurt and give it to him to try the very next day, he wasn’t convinced that it would be nicer than porridge (his favourite breakfast). However, as soon as he tried the overnight oats he said, ‘mum this is nicer than porridge I can’t believe it, it’s the nicest thing I have ever had!’ He now keeps asking me to make it for breakfast and dessert! This new recipe has to stay in our house forever now, as Troy keeps commenting, ‘mum it is the nicest breakfast in the world!’
To go with my yummy oats, I had a latte. Could I please just say this wasn’t any latte, it was a Yeo Valley latte and it was exquisite. The coffee beans used are from a Bristol-based coffee roaster, Extract Coffee. Yeo Valley partnered with a local company which shares similar values when it comes to fair pay, communities, working environments for farmers and employees. Extract coffee employ farms that use the best practices. Their mission statement is, ‘ Make coffee as good as it can possibly be.’ Honestly, the coffee was beautiful, I haven’t tasted a latte in London as flawless as this one in a very long time! As my loyal Instagram and social media followers know, I taste coffee everywhere I go, all over the country and around the world. Yeo Valley whole milk also added to the quality and the flavour of the latte. Yeo Valley Cafe you have captured my heart with this beverage.
The Yeo Valley Cafe is a short walk from Hyde Park and Princess Diana’s playground. It took us approximately 4 minutes to walk to Hyde Park. In the future whenever we are visiting Hyde Park or meeting relatives, we will be stopping off and visiting The Yeo Valley cafe for healthy snacks and cups of coffee. I also recommend for any parent and family to do the same. I can guarantee you, that you will not be disappointed with the quality of the food and drink. Yeo Valley cafe has a beautiful atmosphere, no matter the weather outside, you instantly feel at home.
The quirky interior designs are delightful, elegant and fun. The background story to The Yeo Valley Cafe could be movie gold! I would love to write a script about the legendary history. It all started in 1972 when Roger and Mary Mead opened up their first little tearoom on the farm that they purchased when they got married. Over the years, the little tearoom grew and grew with success. Yeo Valley wanted to share some of this success with London and invested in this stunning cafe. The only problem I have is that we now need a Yeo Valley Cafe to open in Kingston Upon Thames, and at least one in the north of England, preferably Sheffield.
The time and effort, and detail that has gone into the Yeo Valley cafe is absolutely outstanding. The bathroom is one of the cutest toilets in London! Immaculately clean, changing your baby in the London themed restroom is actually quite pleasant. Mothers all over the world know the horrors that we face when it comes to changing your child in a public toilet. Yeo Valley Cafe has made the experience fun with the London underground decor and speakers. Could I also just say, it is really ‘Instagramable!’ If you are visiting London, this is a good place to come and take pictures, as well as experiencing some amazing organic produce.
As you may already know, the kids and I go on many an adventure across London. So what brought us to the Yeo Valley Cafe for breakfast? The launch of the Little Yeos Yogurt pots! All of my kids are little yoghurt monsters and I instantly knew that they would love the product and breakfast in the Yeo Valley cafe. It turns out, I was absolutely right! My son could not get enough of them, and he wanted to open all of the Yogurt pots! What I think is fabulous about these pots of Little Yeos is the fact that they are using 1/3 less plastic for the packaging than they do with the 6 pot packs. I have just signed a petition with Greenpeace to have supermarkets use fewer plastics for unnecessary packaging. At the end of each day, I am quite horrified when I see how much plastic there is leftover in the home to recycle. Therefore, I am really happy to see big brands such as Yeo Valley consider the environment. In addition to this, the kids and I love the recycling ideas that are printed on the insides of the cardboard labels. There are lots of fun and fabulous tips on how you can reuse the plastic pots, my children personally love making moving robots out of the recycling. I like the bigger pots of yoghurt because I have three children, so I can buy one of these pots and control how much each of my children will eat from them. My eldest son eats a lot more than his baby sister does, so I can adjust the portion sizes to suit each of the children.
Of course, we took home lots of lovely yoghurts with us! As Troy was unable to attend the breakfast at Yeo Valley Cafe, I brought home plenty of yoghurts for him to enjoy for breakfast and dessert. The kids are very happy indeed. I have also promised to take him to The Yeo Valley Cafe in London soon so that he can experience the beautiful food and cafe for himself. We are all very excited to go back! I can’t wait to order another latte, I may do a little bit of shopping in there too!
Overall, I am very impressed with The Yeo Valley Cafe. The children can’t wait to take their grandparents there when they next visit London. The Little Yeos are very scrumptious! As expected they didn’t last very long in my house as the kids have enjoyed eating them with oats and fruit. Together, we rate Little Yeos an organic five out of five stars! Well done Yeo Valley Farm for considering the environment whilst providing us with delicious produce. We are definitely loyal customers of yours!
