Quite literally a hidden gem; Lu-Ma Cafe is situated off the beaten track in the Justin James Hotel in Wimbledon.
With its focus on vegetarian, gluten, dairy and refined sugar free food, Lu-Ma Café is all about real honest grub. With no hidden ingredients, it’s truly ‘what you see is what you get’ kind of food. Most importantly it is food everyone enjoys, super health conscious or not. The idea that real food doesn’t have to be restrictive, that you don’t have to compromise on taste, that you still leave feeling full, is very much the aim here.
With the perfect balance of good ol’ British classics and just the right amount of creativity to keep it interesting, clean eating need not feel inferior. To drink, there is a healthy selection of cold-pressed juices. There’s also more out-there turmeric lattes and a classic hot chocolate (sweetened only with maple syrup and vanilla).
Clean full English breakfasts, sandwiches, curries, cheesecakes – even afternoon tea with homemade gluten-free scones – all support the idea that you’re not compromising by choosing healthy options. They also have a children’s menu and a delivery service – which uses 100% compostable packaging!
But where Lu-Ma Café really sets itself apart is with its events. There are raw cake workshops, monthly supper clubs, seasonal parties and Lu-Ma late nights where you can visit until 9.30pm.
Particularly appealing are the foodie evenings where you can enjoy canapés and a three course vegan meal with organic beer or vegan prosecco! Check their events page to find out about their upcoming events.
