source foods, highgate

We were viewing an apartment in Highgate this afternoon, and took the opportunity to drop in to Source Foods for lunch. I've heard a fair bit about Source Foods, it being a cafe that tries to fit into the organic/sustainable kind of idea, and also being owned by the same person who owns the Sandcastle Organic (which, sadly, no longer does vegan meals). Anyway, we were both quite excited to finally have the opportunity to try Source Foods out.

The interior is tiny, and it was full when we headed past on the way to the viewing, but by the time we had returned forty-five minutes later, it was almost empty and we got a table inside by the window. We could have watched the cars go by but I will be honest, we were more interested in the paper and discussing the properties we've got to view during the upcoming week.

Though there was a bit of a wait after we ordered, about half an hour, it was worth it. I ordered the "vegan heaven" breakfast, the tempeh was smoky and the hummus on the toast was fantastic. D's burger was allegedly excellent. The menu also features some tasty sounding gluten-free options, including nachoes, and they do a cashew rice noodle that I hope can be veganised. I look forward to finding out.
