Soph and I heard a whisper that Chiswick had a new little hotspot so we took a stroll round the river [along with my favourite golden retriever Amy] and headed for No. 197 Chiswick Fire Station for a bite of lunch.
We settled in to soak up the rays, sipping a few of their house lemonades. Be sure to try the berry and the grapefruit. I can't decide which I liked best.
After a rather wine-y Friday evening the night before, we were ready to dig into the food. We had the crostini selection which was a nice way to start. Just the right nibble size - i.e., one mouthful, one go.
The coconut poached chicken, which was to die for. So light and healthy with a zingy, Asian-influenced salad.
The breakfast bruschetta was next, with oozy cooked tomatoes and plenty of avo. Wasn't the hugest fan of the thick bacon but it's still worth a try.
Lastly a giant dish of mussels with crusty bread. Mmm mmm. The sauce was perfect to mop up. I even caught Amy giving me some very wishful eyes, looks like she fancied it too.
If you're out west then be sure to stop on by for coffee, a bite or even a cocktail. With its cool modern minimalist theme and quirky accents, I'm sure you'll feel right at home. And for any freelancers, there's even a little corner for you!
