The Covent Garden Restaurant Dedicated To All Things Avocado • Avobar

We’re not ‘avving you on – there’s actually an Avobar for avocado-loving Londoners.

This buzz-chasing avo-centric café had a successful run as a pop-up, but it now has a permanent site in Covent Garden. Can I avo’ woop woop! 🙌 (Header image: @jadesarkhel)

Serving up all things green and photogenic, Avobar’s menu features the likes of sourdough or sweet potato ‘toast’ with smashed avocado, topped with tasty things like beetroot hummus and feta. And, of course, the infamous (or should I say Insta-famous) avocado bun. The menu changes quite regularly as the staff experiment with fresh new recipes, but there’ll always be brunch dishes and burgers, and Californian-style sharing plates in the evening.

The sharing plates are great if you want to try loads of little bits, though don’t expect to ever stray from the avocado theme. While I recommend the Prawn Ceviche and the Pulled Beef Tacos, my sister, the token vegetarian, raves about the Vegan Tacos and the Thai-style Corn Fritters. (I nicked a few mouthfuls, and can confirm that they were pretty damn tasty.) All of these dishes should almost definitely be paired with cocktails, of which there are plenty…

Try the Botanical Fizz — one of their signature cocktails — if you like things fresh and ginny, or a classic Bellini if you’re feeling basic (they’re brilliant, we’re not judging). There’s also an Avo Colada which, admittedly, we didn’t try, but I guess you’ll just have to do that for us…

And that’s not all, because the interiors are just as ‘grammable as the food. Inspired by cool, Californian vibes, this venue is quite literally the epitome of millennial dreams. You’ll even be able to purchase lovely avocado-based beauty products from their in-house mini-store.
