The Good Life Eatery

An omnivorous café near Sloane Square

FSA food hygiene rating (2013-09-04): ★★★★☆ (good)

  • Good coffee
  • Nice atmosphere
  • Vegan cakes
  • Gets busy at weekends and doesn’t have a lot of seating
  • Expensive, especially with unspecified ‘service charge’ added to prices for eat in

The Good Life Eatery is a small café in Kensington, a short walk from the museums and a shorter walk off the King’s Road. It was rammed when I dropped by; there isn’t a lot of seating, and we were lucky to get some bar stools to perch on.

They have a lot of cakes in the window, with several vegan choices, and a variety of hot drinks including some unusual ones like a matcha tea latte. They also do cold-pressed smoothies, but if you’re willing to pay £6.55 for 500ml of smoothie you’re far more Kensington than I am. The smoothie fridge also features homemade vegan peanut butter cups, so if you’ve got a sweet tooth you’ll be well catered-for.

They have a variety of veggie-friendly food options, and although the staff didn’t know immediately what was vegan they did find out. I had a nice “The Veggiest of Them All” club sandwich, which was tasty… but also around £7, and around 10 inches long. No side salad, no chips. Just a £7 sandwich, eaten perched on a bar stool. I ate it with a (very nice) £3.55 café latte served in a small cup.

It is a nice place and the vegan cakes are a welcome sight, but I think it’s too expensive to visit regularly, especially when you may not get a seat.

About Nopudding London

Nopudding London was built entirely by Alex Pounds. It's designed as a more geography-centric guide of places to eat. Most veggie listings start with a table of text, but I'm normally trying to answer the question "Where can I get a good meal near _____?". Textual listings aren't very good at that.

I am available for hire, and you should follow me on Twitter.

Why only London?

I'm only adding places I've visited, as I'm more interested in making personal recommendations than being comprehensive. There are some other places elsewhere in the world, too, if you go looking for them...
