Mildreds – vegetarian in Soho

Thoroughly enjoying being a tourist (and staying in central London) while G was in town earlier this week, we were out and about in Soho and more than ready for brunch by 11.30am on Wednesday.

Mildreds seemed like an ideal place to go to (G being vegetarian, and it having been on my hit-list for a long time) although we had to do a few laps around the block (Carnaby Street, so not a problem) as it doesn’t open until 12 noon.

Waiting for Mildred’s to open – brewing up a storm


We were the first in but then it filled up very quickly (it’s quite small – probably under 50 covers) and the take-away salad bar was immensely popular too.

We both ordered a fresh juice made of carrot, apple, beetroot and ginger @ £3.75 (so good we both slurped through our straws ’til our glasses were completely dry).

Juice (no, not that kinda Juice)


For a starter we shared Thai tofu fritters with mango, coconut and chilli sauce @ £6.25 (excellent; an equal alternative to my usual choice of Thai tod mun fishcakes when ordering Thai starters).

For main course, G had a large mixed salad plate @ £7.95 (a selection of salads from the fresh salad bar) and I had a black bean burrito with red pepper and green tomatillo rice, topped with tomato salsa and cheddar with iceberg, sour cream, guacamole and pico de gallo @ £10.25 (again – excellent, and pretty spicy too).

Neither of us could finish our plates (disappointingly). The total bill for two came to £30.88, including service, which seemed very reasonable.

Mildred’s menu


The verdict: Excellent service (chipper waiting staff), really good menu choices (I was spoilt for choice and didn’t miss meat at all, even though I’m not a vegetarian) and excellent, freshly prepared food. I’ll be back. Hopefully soon.
