Daylesford Pimlico
44B Pimlico Rd., Pimlico
You can be sure that everything you eat at this café is organic and free from any nasty chemicals, because everything from the produce to the dairy to the breads and the meat here is sourced from the Daylesford farms in the Cotswolds and Staffordshire. And while there are sugary baked treats and the like to be had here, there are also cold-pressed juices, bone broths, and a great array of salads on offer for those in the market for a healthier pick-me-up. There are also locations in Marylebone and Notting Hill, each one a perfect spot if you're looking for some lunch or a cozy space to sit and catch up on some work.
The Artist Residence
52 Cambridge St., Pimlico
This townhouse turned hotel is tucked away on a singularly quiet, residential street in Pimlico—and it's as homey as it gets for a city getaway. Each of the ten rooms is decorated with quirky, colorful finds and limited-edition prints, in a slightly rustic yet perfectly comfortable and characterful manner that makes you feel like you're staying at a good friend's house (who happens to be an excellent host). The stay here has few bells and whistles (i.e., no gym, spa, or the rest) other than its excellent all-day restaurant, the Cambridge Street Cafe—a Brighton import—but is perfect for a short city break.
