Enjoy a lean shake at the new Protein Haus flagship in St. Pauls
Protein Haus is the ultimate spot to grab a post workout shake or juice. The fitness food brand offers a wide range of fuelling shakes and juices made with wholesome and delicious ingredients. The flagship Protein Haus has just launched at St.Paul’s on Watling Street offering hot food and seats for customers! Steak, sweet potato and asparagus and Tofu brown rice avocado are some of the protein packed meals on the menu. The flagship exclusively serves breakfast from 7.45am to 11.30pm, perfect for some pre or post workout fuel, they offer egg whites and broccoli, zoats, protein oats and whole eggs and broccoli. We recommend the Bruce Lean shake that is packed with veggies or the Snickers if you’re a chocolate lover who needs to cure a craving! If you live or work locally to a Protein Haus, check out their meal prep service, you can order meals for 5 days tailored to your fitness goals and nutritional needs and collect them daily, perfect if you lead a busy lifestyle and want to ensure you eat well!
Indulge in New Bottomless Brunch at Hally’s
Hally’s is a Californian-inspired hangout in Fulham and is the ultimate brunch spot! Hally’s uses organic and ethical ingredients to create delicious breakfast and lunch as well as cakes and deserts. They have just introduced a bottomless brunch which includes a Monmouth coffee or a loose leaf tea, your choice of a main course, a pastry or cookie (it’s the weekend after all!) and the best part…Unlimited Prosecco and Blood Orange Mimosa! As part of the launch of the bottomless brunch, there is an introductory offer of only £25, this offer is seriously not to be missed! We recommend the warming stew of mixed beans, chorizo & spinach with a poached egg and sourdough toast but whatever you go for, your sure to be impressed.
