6-8 Blandford St., Marylebone
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 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's also a location in Notting Hill and Pimlico.
Hemsley + Hemsley at Selfridges
Having published two bestselling cookbooks, and made the spiralizer a household tool, it was only natural that sisters Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley would set their sites on opening up a café. Of course, it's not just any café: They're opening up in Selfridges in April in the department store's brand new Body Studio—a major part of the shop dedicated to wellness—and serving up their grain-, gluten-, and refined sugar-free food from morning till night. Expect flaxseed muffins and green juices, bone broths, chicory lattes, colorful, spiralized salads, and many other hits.
2-6 Moxon St., Marylebone
Not only are you sure to find some of the most gorgeous fruits, vegetables, and specialty foods here, but you're also bound to fall in love with their cheese room. Separated by a glass sliding door, the deliciously stinky room is full of cheeses from all over Europe. The designated cheese mongers are incredibly knowledgeable and kind, so don't hold back with the questions.

Pâtisserie des Rêves (Closed)
43 Marylebone High St., Marylebone
Philippe Contini’s modern chain of patisseries has just arrived in London from Paris and Japan, and packs some serious heat: These pretty little confections are some of the best treats in the city. At the Marylebone HQ, each individual pastry is presented in its own refrigerated glass cloche—sleek, modern, and fanciful all at once. Kids will go nuts in here and so will anyone with a serious sugar addiction. The 'Paris Brest' is insane.
The Good Life Eatery
69 Marylebone Ln., Marylebone
There's a regular line out the door at this soon-to-expand cafe thanks to its seriously delicious raw foods, protein-packed offerings, and juices. Recently, they've teamed up in a big way with London's top delivery service, Deliveroo, so there's actually no need to wait as you can ostensibly order an entire day's worth of food to your home or office every morning. Make sure that order includes one of their meatball wraps—both the chicken and vegan versions are delicious and won't make you feel like you're making any sacrifices. There's also a location in Chelsea and Belgravia.
The Mae Deli
21 Seymour Pl., Marylebone
Among the major power players on the wellness scene is Ella Woodward (aka Deliciously Ella), whose blog and cookbooks have become immensely popular in the past couple of years, so much so, that her all-day café is constantly packed with ardent fans and disciples. Of course, the reason they keep coming back is because the wheat-, dairy-, and sugar-free food and treats served here are verifiably great. Plus, the whole place is ever so welcoming—a light-filled upstairs, plush couch-lined downstairs—making it ever so hard to leave.
The Natural Kitchen
77/78 Marylebone High St., Marylebone
When you're window shopping in Marylebone and in need of a healthy lunch or snack, The Natural Kitchen is the perfect stop on the High Street. Take a seat at one of their communal wooden tables and dig into a smoothie and salad (we're also hooked on their butcher's chicken sausages). The concept is expanding fast with locations in the City and Tower Hill—there are surely more to come.
