Anyway having visited the house I met up with Josie, who's also moving to this area, and we headed into Parsons Green to soak up the sun and enjoy a late lunch at Hally's. I've been dying to go here for months now but for various reasons I haven't been around to grab the opportunity. But today I was back. And boy was it worth it!
I'm fairly certain these yellow chairs are going to become a feature in my house. Such a great pop of colour.
The café is a Californian inspired eatery with deliciously fresh salads, naughty cakes and hearty soups. If I could, I would have chosen everything on the menu. But instead I opted for a fresh lentil and butternut squash salad with deliciously salty fried haloumi. Perfection.
"What did the cheese say when he looked in the mirror? Halou-mi!"
Josie went all out and got the burger. I got jealous.
Still, the salad was great and just what I needed.
Hally's just oozes cool. With its big open front, those yellow chairs and some seriously beautiful people sitting out in the sun at the front, I think this might be one of my favourite new places to sit and gossip at. Plus the interior is pretty great too.
I think I'll go for the beet and ginger juice next time I'm in.
Josie and I left feeling satisfied and perhaps slightly deluded about living effortlessly cool lives in Fulham. I blame the sun.
I want this place to become my new playground. I might need to sell a kidney though to turn this into a reality...
Go at once and visit them!!
p.s if any of you know of a little place going spare in (south)west London, please do tell! I'm a clean kinda gal and I'll cook up a storm in the kitchen if you'll have me. I promise I don't bite. Mostly.
