Dining out: Mildred's
Supporting small businesses
Mildred's would be right up your street if you like supporting independent businesses, and appreciate good vegan food.
Mildred's is a vegetarian restaurant that has lots of delicious vegan options. They have one restaurant and they put their heart and soul into serving the many customers who come through their doors.
Booking a table at Mildred's
Mildred's have a no-booking policy but I see this as a positive thing! On nearly every occasion I've been to Mildred's, I've had to wait for a table. The time I've waited has ranged from 5 minutes to half an hour, but it's been worth it! They are super popular and you may get an inkling about why this is when you look through the photos below.
Why you should go to Mildred's
I think it's worth eating at Mildred's for a few reasons.
- the venue is cosy and friendly
- the staff have a relaxing way about them even though the restaurant is so busy
- the staff and they know their stuff about what they're serving
- the food is delicious
- they have lots of vegan options
- if you're not super hungry but fancy a dessert, I'd recommend just popping in for the chocolate and peanut butter brownie
Mildred's is growing! They had one restaurant, which is 45 Lexington Street, Soho, London,
I've not been to their newer branch, which is in Camden but I hear good things about it! Their second restaurant is at 9 Jamestown Road, Camden, London, NW1 7BW.
Update August 2016
I've now been to the branch in Camden and their third branch in Kings Cross too. All of them are easy to get to, the service is great, the food is consistent and word's got out, so they're often busy. Mildred's booking policy.
Here are the photos from my most recent visits.
A bit of myth busting
So is it a myth or is it a fact? Is finding somewhere that serves vegan options difficult when you're out and about?
