The Blue Legume, N1

A great atmosphere and generous portions help this café come restaurant stand out from the rest

The Blue Legume is a local favourite, with 3 locations all serving up healthy Mediterranean dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day of the week. It’s one of my favourite places for breakfast or brunch. I haven’t been in the evening but I’ve walked past several times and it looks like it’s a great venue for a relaxing dinner.

Once you’re inside you instantly feel relaxed, there’s a lovely atmosphere in The Blue Legume and the staff will quickly get you seated. The decor is interesting, with exposed brickwork in the front section of the restaurant and the ceiling almost completely covered in mirrors. As you head to the back of the restaurant past the delicious looking specials and dessert counters there’s a much lighter, white walled section.

The portions are generous here, making it great value for money and the food’s of a high standard. If there’s two of, sharing the Mediterranean breakfast, which consists of grilled Halloumi, spicy sausage, feta, fresh tomato, poached egg, olives and jam with brown toast and the Hash Brown or Cumberland breakfast is a good idea so you get a bit of everything. The fresh combination juices are also excellent and will help set you up for the day.

The Blue Legume ticks a lot of boxes and lends itself to a lot of situations, coffee and cake, fresh Mediterranean salads, British fry ups and so on. It’s popular with the locals and rightly so, long may it continue.
