26 GrainsThe brainchild of Alex Hely-Hutchinson, 26 Grains in Neal's Yard is an open-fronted, rustic cafť that specialises in a seasonally changing menu of hearty, colourful dishes. Taking inspiration from Scandinavian cooking, the restaurant specialises in porridge but also offers an evening set-menu of regularly changing, simple dishes that centre on seasonality. Looking beyond golden syrup, the porridge dishes bring together vibrant, nutritious ingredients that transform it from a boring midweek breakfast to an exciting guilt-free treat. Grains such as quinoa, buckwheat, barley, millet, flaxseed and, of course, oats are combined with cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and star anise while toppings range from nuts and fresh fruits to homemade compotes and granolas. Add pretty flowers to that and you've got some seriously Instagram worthy food. The evening menu, meanwhile, features comforting dishes such as tagliatelle with mushroom and walnuts; arrabbiata; pork and fennel ragu; and broccoli and chilli.
