A few years ago ‘free from’ wasn’t really part of our everyday vocabulary, if you had an allergy or intolerance you just didn’t eat that food – dairy bring you out in a rash? No ice cream for you. Gluten has you swelling up like bread rising? You’re not going to be having sandwiches then, are you?
However, luckily, times are changing and one new café at the forefront of the movement is Yorica! London’s first free from café has set up shop in Soho. Serving up shakes, fro-yo and ice cream, everything will be free from the 14 major allergens including dairy, lactose, gluten, nuts, wheat, GMO artificial sweeteners, eggs and everything is completely vegan, too!
You’ll find Matcha green tea fro-yo alongside free from chocolate shakes, peanut butter ice cream without a hint of nuts and beetroot ice cream all of which can be topped with coconut shavings, vegan marshmallows and fresh fruit.
The psychedelic décor features hanging chairs, a 1960’s counter culture soundtrack, an iPad area to keep children entertained and a selfie wall where you can snap your ‘Your-ica!’ moment… see what they did there?
No one should be denied ice cream.
