Today marks the end of my first week in Cornwall, I have now been living in Truro for seven days and already feel at home. There are aspects of London that, of course, I will miss but this is offset by trips to the beach and a more chilled out life in general where things, on the whole, move a fraction slower. This I like. There are definitely gluten free hotspots that I will miss and a little cafe on Wandsworth Common called Flotsam and Jetsam is one of them. This place is extremely popular and unless you get there early on a weekend you may have a wait on your hands. Catch this place off peak though and you can grab yourself a quiet little corner and with a chilled out vibe you can relax, take it in and watch the world go by.
This is exactly what I did the day before I moved out of the capital. Whether you go for breakfast, lunch or a slice of cake in the afternoon there are always gluten free options. in fact the last weekend before I headed down the A303 I made it in there for both breakfast and cake later on in the day.
I went for a simple but very tasty and aesthetically pleasing eggs Benedict and later on in the day I managed to devour a salted chocolate brownie. Both were delicious. It is clear that the team at Flotsam and Jetsam love what they do, the attention to the detail is on point with a friendly and attentive attitude to boot. No wonder this little spot is so popular. They do healthy juices along with good coffee, interesting sweet offerings and hearty sandwiches. If the sun is shining and you are lucky enough to spot a space to sit outside then grab it. To burn off your food I would recommend a stroll around the common afterwards :-)
