If you love the idea of comfort food with a conscience, Wulf and Lamb provides it by the bucketful!
Tucked away on a quiet lane behind Sloane Square, the café has a take away counter downstairs with table seating. Upstairs the main dining area is quieter and larger with a loft-like feel. The decor is a calming green with red accents. There are a few outside tables on Pavilion Rd and on the small balcony upstairs. The vibe is modern with marble and wood tables and fresh roses. The staff are super friendly and helpful.
Their nutritious “junk food” hit the spot and the plant based desserts are to die for.
We went for the Wulf seitan burger, which sounded incredible. It’s layered with tomato, baby gem, pickle, red onion and cashew aioli. And all packed in a chunky brioche bun. It was huge, fab and filling. It came with mustard sauerkraut and a large portion of roast veg wedges with rosemary and thyme. For sides we got a game changer: vegan mac n cheese made with cashew cream, turmeric, mustard and spices with huge savoury flavour and plenty of good crisp brown bits to greedily scrape from the pot. The char-grilled broccoli with (vegan) porcini and garlic breadcrumbs was full on delicious too and a dish good enough to crave making at home.
They have a huge variety of dessert and pudding, all of which looked absolutely amazing. From peanut butter and chocolate cake, to rose and pistachio cupcakes and even vegan croissants! So far I’ve happened to try their rose and pistachio cupcake which had a soft consistency and not too overly sweet; the pistachio giving it a subtle nutty note. Their brownie and carrot cake were also spectacular, heaven in a mouthful!
Calling this ‘fiercely kind food’ is perfectly reasonable as a brand notion!
