Cafe Forty One | La Suite West

Café Forty One – London’s only authentic vegan French pâtisserie – offers a truly unique vegan dining experience. It breaks the stereotype of plant based food and instead provides stunning delicate dishes which are packed full of flavour and beautifully displayed.

Whether you’re looking for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea or a cheeky dessert, Head Chef Clarisse Flon’s new vegan menu is inspired and will quite simply knock your socks off. What’s more the seating arrangements are shabby chic, with wooden tables outside under a canopy of trees with fairy lights woven through. A stunning environment for dining al fresco. You can hardly believe that you’re in London.

What we ate at Café Forty One

On my recent visit to Café Forty One we had intended to have afternoon tea, but after looking at the menu we opted for a main and a dessert each. It was so nice to be able to choose absolutely anything on the menu. We felt utterly spoilt for choice.

Mains at Café Forty One

The chickpea frittata was thick and wholesome with a garlic yogurt dressing that added a bit of moisture to the dish. I’ve only just discovered frittatas and I thoroughly enjoyed this one.

Potato and chickpea frittata, red pepper, spinach, spring onion, topped with garlic yogurt and roasted cherry tomatoes £9.60


The mushroom pie and mash was an absolute surprise. I didn’t expect it to be anywhere near as delicious as it was. The combination of flavours was just sensational. If you’re a pie and mash fan then you’ll love this.

 Individual pot pie with mushroom bourguignon in puff pastry served with mashed potatoes and gravy £10.60


The quiche was unusual as it was crustless, but it had ribbons of courgette cooked around the edge to keep it in place. Very clever. As expected it tasted delicious and it wasn’t eggy in flavour at all which I was pleased about.

Individual crustless quiche with Mediterranean vegetable ribbons served with mixed leaves £8.50


Desserts at Café Forty One

As we sat eating our mains we’d seen a number of desserts float on past us and had one thing on the brain, the decadent millefeuille. The millefeuille was a little piece of heaven. Creamy, crispy, chocolatey, it had it all. Such stunning presentation as well. A 5 star dessert.

Layers of caramelised puff pastry with chocolate and praliné crème pâtissière £4.50


If you’re a chocolate fiend then the salted caramel, hazelnut and chocolate mousse dome is the dessert for you. I would say that it is less mousse and more ganache but it was simply sensational. Dark decadence on a plate. Loved it.

Chocolate mousse dome, hazelnut biscuit and salted caramel £5.00


If you prefer something a bit more fruity than the raspberry, matcha and apricot entremet may be for you. It was unlike anything that I had tried before. The only way that I can think of to describe it is a more solid and potent form of jelly. In any case, very tasty and so nice to see something completely different on the menu.

Almond and matcha genoise, grilled apricot mousse and raspberry gelee £5.20


Café Forty One at La Suite West has certainly made it into my top 5 vegan eateries in London amongst Lele’s and Manna’s. We had a truly fabulous meal. For London it’s incredible value for money, especially considering the effort put into plating the dishes. I cannot wait to visit again.

    Omg this place sounds like a dream come true! Looks like a beautiful place to sit and dine, and the food looks gorgeous too! I love the sound of the chickpea frittata – I love anything which has onions and garlic! I’ve never tried one before but it looks lush. The chocolate mousse is also another option I’d definitely love to try. I love how each dish is really unique and are so beautifully presented. I need to visit London ASAP! Haha!
