We visited one Saturday morning at around 10AM, the restaurant was quiet but it did start to get a little busier by the time we left. Unfortunately the coffee machine was out of order which did put a couple of customers off. This didn’t actually bother us though as they were still serving filter coffee which tasted absolutely delicious.
We also ordered a couple more drinks, Rach went for a green juice (of course) it was the easy being green Farmstand juice which was so nice and really refreshing. Annie ordered a ginger kombucha by L.A brewery that was so delicious and the ginger flavour was incredible!
Farmstand was like a little jungle, there were plants everywhere which we absolutely LOVED!
Rach ordered toasted sourdough & Avocado which cost £3.50. The smashed avocado was really tasty and served on the side so you could add as little of as much as you wanted! In fact as it was only 1 slice Rach had some left over!
Annie ordered the tomato salsa & soft boiled eggs on rye bread, which was absolutely delicious. The Rye bread was incredibly moist and they were very generous with the salsa. Hard boiled eggs are Annie’s favourite kind of egg so this was a nice treat as most places don’t have hard boiled eggs on the menu. This dish cost £3.25 which is cheaper than the Avocado on sourdough which really surprised us as we would have expected it to have been way more.
Farmstand is a great place to come for a coffee catch up, as there is lots of seating and the filter coffee that was had was delicious and strong, just how we like it!
We would love to return to try the lunch menu, where you get to pick a main and 2 sides, as it sounds yum! We also fancy trying the banana bread with compote as it looked and sounds delicious!
We went to the toilet before we left and downstairs there was a couple of people attending what looked like a knitting class! It looked so cute and would be the perfect activity if you like to knit!
The staff at Farmstand were really happy and all had smiles on their faces! Something we really appreciate when visiting restaurants.
So the next time you are in Covent Garden make sure you stop by Farmstand for a delicious meal that won’t break the bank!
