Ah… April in London. Nothing like it. Oh, actually, yes there is – winter. Snowstorms and dread. Spring really hasn’t lived up to its potential so far. Started off like a Tim Burton-esque winter nightmare, with frost, flus and terrifying rumours of a new ice age.
So we’ve been a bit confused about what to deliver here at Tom’s. We just don’t know what we want to eat right now, let alone predicting what y’all want to be fed. But today, as the sun reluctantly shows its weary face, we have decided that if Spring won’t come to us, we will bring Spring to you! Does that make sense? Stay with me.
We have started serving some lovely crisp salads in the café, and introduced a new line of crazy refreshing apple juices in the deli.
Watermelon – sweet, feta – salty, tomatoes – earthy. Put a sprig of mint on that and you’ve got sunshine in a bowl. Shut your eyes and you’re on a Greek isle (sorry, you’re not imagining the bouzouki, we’ve got the ‘World’ playlist on, hrm).
Love cheese, think goats are cool? Try the grilled goat’s cheese salad with a variety of super crisp veg. Warm and cold, soft and crunchy.
I am Juice. Yes you ARE. The juiciest juice in town. Straight up apple, Apple & Elderflower (would make a great cocktail), Apple & Ginger and Apple, Raspberry and Rose (like drinking a garden. In a good way). And they’re our neighbours, based on Portobello Rd, so they’re good people.
Duskin juices are your basic essence of single variety apples, and all round crowd pleasing thirst quencher.
We’ll be updating the wine selection very soon too. I can’t wait for my first sip of rose in the sun, such an iconic moment every year.
So don’t worry, whatever the weather, we’ve decided that the sun shall shine at Tom’s!
