Hemsley & Hemsley at Selfridges, London *Closed*

Gluten free cafe at Selfridges, London

Unfortunately the cafe closed at the end of 2020.

Many people are familiar with the Hemsley sisters from their TV show and cookbooks.

Their healthy dishes are free from gluten, grains, refined sugar and hydrogenated vegetable oils which makes their cafe in Selfridges a great stop for coeliacs.

It is located on the third floor, a little oasis just off the shopping area.

The menu

The menus are available online and are divided into breakfast and afternoon tea and an all day main menu.

The menu changes seasonally, which you can find online. Breakfast items include things like granola, pancakes and a cooked breakfast The main menu is small but with interesting choices that include vegan and vegetarian options.

They also do an afternoon tea selection of scones or sandwiches which sounds a lovely break during a shopping trip.  A picture to whet your appetite is on their website here.


kombucha cocktailAs well as the standard drink offerings of coffee and tea, you can of course get more unusual items such as a Kombucha, bulletproof coffee, matcha or golden chai latte and lavender hot chocolate.

There is a small selection of alcoholic drinks. I chose the strawberry kombucha cocktail, which was delicious.


Main meal

The crispy chicken thighs comes with your choice of up to three salads. This was a very generous serve, so it was filling as well as delicious.

My friend had the pulled lamb shawarma with rice which she also loved.


We shared these beautiful orange blossom crêpes for dessert. Although they didn’t photograph very well, they were lovely and I could have eaten them both myself 🙂

The Hemsley & Hemsley cafe is a safe haven for coeliacs in central London’s main shopping street. Our meal came to £65 which included the usual UK service charge (“discretionary” but always added to the bill) and a wine not pictured here.

It is also worth checking out the Food Hall on the ground floor as they also stock some gluten free products.
