The farm girl of the title is owner Rose Mann, whose rural Aussie childhood is a natural fit for modern ideas about healthy eating. Tucked away at the smart end of Portobello Road, this cute little café draws health-conscious locals and tourists familiar with fruit bowls, granola and acai bowls. The food that comes out of the tiny open kitchen is impressive – think generous portions of steak and chips, crab cakes and lentil and fennel salad. Also check out the trendy coconut 'bacon' (tamari, maple syrup and coconut flakes) slipped into gluten-free (and vegan) BLTs. Drinks include cold-brew coffee, green tea, hot chocolate and high-powered smoothies. A frieze of mythical farm creatures dominates the tiled room, while huge windows overlook a sheltered outdoor courtyard.
I had met Patricia, the extremely talented blogger who writes Passagem Gastronomica (http://passagemgastronomica.com.br/en/) at the Luiz Hara Nikkei supper club. Even though we chatted for a bit, we did not realize that we were already following each other on Instagram and we finally ended up connecting thought it. We scheduled a lunch to share our passion for food and tales of two Brazilians who ended up in London and who have serious day jobs, but yet are truly passionate about food.

Stalking the fantastic Fashion Me Now blog, I found a few of Lucy’s favourite London hunts. Farm Girl Caf& came up as one of the places, and peeking at their website I also found out it was dog-friendly. A catch up with the girls were due and since one of them had a dog I mentioned to go to Farm Girl Caf& on a lovely Sunday (I also really wanted to meet the resident French Bulldog Bronte). A short walk from Notting Hill Gate station we passed cute pastel painted houses and big mansions hidden in a courtyard.
