“Lovely for a breakfast or lunch snack, and with good bread etc to buy to take home” – Lady Bamford’s faux-rustic organic cafés can make a good choice for a posh brunch, despite toppish prices and historically variable service. In October 2018, the brand arrives in its spiritual London home, with a large new ‘Farmshop and Café’ near chichi Brompton Cross.
“Great healthy brunches” help draw a busy crowd to Lady Bamford’s rus-in-urbis organic cafés. Service can be variable and even “sniffy” however, and high prices are a recurring concern: “the food is nice, but it is SO expensive that I always feel a little bit ripped off!”
“You feel like the food’s doing you good (although it probably isn’t!)”, at Lady Bamford’s “bright” (but “crowded” and slightly “chaotic”) organic-branded cafés, hailed by fans for their “fresh and healthy” dishes, including “lovely breakfasts served in quirky metal pans”.
Lady Bamford’s painstakingly stylish organic cafés – now also in Marylebone – are most often tipped for brunch; more generally they are “decent enough but too expensive for what they are”, and service “lacks focus”.
