Be warned- you will get carried away buying tons of tasty things to take home, Mortadella is our favourite! Terrific deli I'd highly recommend! Perfect coffee too. Haven't eaten in yet-but I'm sure it's great.
I'm a regular here for lunch and am pretty much addicted to their Chicken Ciabatta while the Gnocchi is also amazing. The coffee is also fantastic and the owner and staff are very personable and clearly love what they do. Can't recommend highly enough!!

Love to come here to pick up a sandwich to take away or eat at the tables outside. We usually end up browsing and picking up an interesting pastry or something from their shop for later. Great spot!
The food here is excellent, the variety and quality is also stellar. Deli style offerings, good breads, cafe with freshly made sandwiches etc. It is however very expensive with a real west London vibe, so quite a juxtaposition from the other places in the area. Not complaining though, nice to have the option even if your wallet will cry... But respect as they've just begun embracing vegan options.

Awesome little cafe and comestables shop , and will serve you far more than just a coffee. Their pizzas are great, the coffee is good and they're always nice and welcoming.
It looks like this place has two entries on Google, I've written an elaborate review for the other entry. :) This place is really fantastic and I've been here many, many times. It's my favourite Italian shop in London!

I love organic food! I went there for the first time in 2018 and I had a really nice meal. I always thought it was a pretty expensive place, and its if you do grocery shop there, but if you want to have lunch, a medium size meal (that looks more large than medium) will cost you no more that 7 quids. Great value for money!
I love Planet Organic, but this one especially! It’s the mecca! Great big selection of supplements, beauty, food, prepared stuff, desserts, and a smoothie bar. Spent ages in here and lots of money. I love health food stores (that sounds weird probably) and this is one of my favs

Great range of food and products. Really like this place and the staff are very helpful.
I love this store. They offer organic, local produce, allow BYO bags, have a delicious prepared food sections and lots of vegan-friendly products as well as environmentally friendly home goods (cleaners, shampoos, etc). They are very responsive to customer feedback as well and are clearly dedicated to minimizing their environmental impact with continual improvements to their practices and products. 2018 UPDATE: They have added a bulk foods section in partnership with Unpack'd and allow you to fill your own bags / containers with dry foods, nuts, etc to avoid plastic packaging and overbuying.

Very good selection of organic food, best part is the selection of ecological cleaning products that you also can buy by the litre in your own container.
For a shop that is comparatively small in size, these guys pack in quite the range of products. Broadly, if your thing is organic, or special dietary requirements, or veganism, or related fields, there is a chance you'll find what you want here. And it's not just food, either: they have a decent range of household goods, toiletries and cosmetics, and fresh fruit and veg, chilled, frozen and ambient foods. The one criticism I would make here is pricing. A lot of the products are comparatively expensive wherever you buy them, but you certainly won't be coming here for the keenness of price, compared to similar competitors. However, it's conveniently located within walking distance of our home, and as a coeliac with some other dietary constraints, I will close my eyes to the price in order to have an occasional spontaneous treat, or find a less widely available ingredient for experiments. To add, they regularly have product sampling and in store demos, so worth keeping an eye on what's going on.
