Billing itself as a "luxury hair, beauty and lifestyle destination in the heart of London's Embassy Gardens", Linnaean sure does the beauty part well even when it comes to the decor. With a mirror wall on one end increasing the spaciousness of the otherwise cosy space, wicker patio furniture, light wood tones and bunches of colourful flowers everywhere, the garden setting provides respite from the urban noise outside.
As a completely vegan establishment that showcases sustainability, seasonal ingredients, a zero-waste policy and nutritional principles at every stage, the plant-rich menu offers a perhaps unexpected variety of choices, whatever your dietary preferences. You might find anything from a vegan English Breakfast to falafel and matcha pancakes on the seasonally changing menu, and they also do their own afternoon tea and bottomless brunch. Everything is supposedly designed with health and exploring man's connection to nature in mind, contributing to the stated lifestyle mission in its own way.
The theme carries on through the additional on-site facilities, which include a hair salon and beauty and wellness treatments such as manicures, massages, waxing and more. The total package for boosting one's wellbeing is rounded off with the eatery's proximity to the iconic Battersea Power Station and the Thames, perfect for an afternoon stroll.
