Enjoy healthy salads, homemade cakes and much, much more at this laidback cafe...
Having first opened in February 2011 on Soho’s busy Wardour Street, L’ETO’s cafés and restaurants have become renowned for delicious, hand-made cakes and savoury delicacies, served in a laidback atmosphere.
With six London-based locations under its belt, tastiness isn't far away. L'ET'O serves breakfast, lunch and dinner in its Belgravia, King’s Road and Brompton branches. Resident chefs prepare everything on site from coffee and cakes to salads, artisan sandwiches and main courses, with dishes available to eat in or to order as deliveries.
Enjoy a wealth of healthy lunch options...
My friend and I visited on a weekday to enjoy a lunchtime pre-Christmas catch up.
Upon our arrival, it quickly became apparent that L'ETO is a true feast for the eyes, with a wealth of freshly made dishes and desserts on offer. With so many delicious options to choose from, the most difficult task is deciding what to order!
The display lunch menu provided a variety of options including fresh salads and hot meats (see below). The salad options were amazing and included everything from couscous to aubergine and everything in between. The meat options included turkey, teriyaki salmon and fish cakes. All items in the display lunch menu are seasonal, so the options are continually evolving throughout the year.
As we couldn't decide whether to order off the ala carte lunch menu or the lunch display set menu (£14.90 for 2 salads + 1 main course or £16.90 for 3 salads +1 main course), I ordered a main and my friend ordered from the lunch display set menu, so we could enjoy the best of both worlds!
Mains options include pastas, salads and risotto. For my main, I ordered the Beef Fillet tagliatea di manzo style (£28.96), which consisted of chunks of beef filet served iwth rocket, fresh tomatoes and parmesan. Although it was seriously tasty and the beef was lovely and tender, it's a bit pricey at nearly £30, so I personally feel that the lunch display menu is the best option as it's more reasonably priced and provides so many options to choose from.
L'ETO's desserts are fantastic, so ensure you leave room to enjoy one of their delectable delights. Options include everything from honey cake to spinach cake (which sounds gross, but it's very moreish) to various tarts and cakes, all of which looked incredible. For those of you who don't live near a L'ETO, they also provide the option to order cakes, pastries, muffins and other treats online.
We found that L'ETO is a great place to catch up with friends while enjoying scrumptious, freshly made cuisine in stylish surroundings.
