Bodyism
222-224 Westbourne Grove, Notting Hill
To say fitness gurus James and Christiane Duigan have a cult following in London doesn't quite sum it up: People are dropping large sums of cash to join their beautiful Notting Hill gym, where circuit workouts include a mix of yoga, pilates, and ballet yielding modelesque physiques. Regardless of whether you're a member, you can enter the Duigan's "Clean and Lean" realm through the gym's own front of house deli. Here, oxygenated air pumps through the light-filled room and Açai bowls, green juices, smoothies, and the like come infused with Bodyism's own line of supplements.
Notting Hill
Daylesford
208-212 Westbourne Grove, Notting Hill
With four London locations in addition to their Gloucestershire farm, Daylesford Organic's farmshops—they're also home to small cafés—are an amazing place to get a very literal taste of the English countryside. You can pop in to buy the local, organic, and humanely raised groceries, or stick around to try their straightforward (but stellar) menu. Their Gloucestershire farm, home to the largest and most elaborate of their farmshops, is well worth the trip if you have the time (you can also spend the night). There are also locations in Marylebone and Pimlico.

Farm Girl Café
59a Portobello Rd., Notting Hill
This is one of those incredibly versatile cafés that there aren't enough of: The WiFi flows freely, the space is gorgeous, decked out in sea-green tiles and elegant line drawings, and there are matcha lattes (with every kind of milk, from almond to coconut and beyond) on tap. And then there's the actual food, which ticks every box: there are açai bowls and a fantastic vegan BLT for lunch, plus the fluffiest pancakes or the hardcore rump steak sandwich with harissa for the indulgent. Farm Girl is an all-rounder.
Notting Hill
Nama Foods
110 Talbot Rd., Notting Hill
This all-day café is kind of the center of the raw food/vegan scene, but it's also where anyone in Notting Hill who's looking for a lighter alternative might head on any given day, whether on a cleanse or just out for a snack. Matcha lattes and kombucha are available (of course), as is every nut, oat, and coconut milk imaginable, plus all the raw salad dishes and sprouted breads you'd expect. With incredible raw cakes and sweets made daily, it's also a haven for the sweet tooth—minus the guilt.
