Half Cup: California in London?

Half Cup, London

Apparently you can get a slice of Los Angeles in London – just head over to Half Cup, a cute cafe near King’s Cross Station where we encountered salmon and avocado on seeded toast, iced chai lattes, vegan and gluten-free blondies, and beetroot lattes (that were bright pink!). It was a tiny artsy cafe that shows the widespread influence of the health-food craze taking the US (especially California, according to my Californian companions) – and I guess elsewhere as well – by storm. As one of my friends said, as he stared at his latte, toast, and blondie, “Did I even leave L.A.?”
