HEMLSEY + HEMSLEY OPEN FIRST CAFE AT SELFRIDGES
Hemsley + Hemsley at Selfridges, an all-day healthy eating cafe, is the latest offering from healthy home cooks Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley
The south London-based sisters, who have taken the health and wellness industry by storm since launching their family-run healthy food business in 2010 (their debut cookbook, The Art of Eating Well, is an international bestseller), have now launched their first ever all day café, serving those who want to eat well.
The Hemsley sisters are now bringing their food philosophy to life with a 30 seater café serving a day-to-night menu from 9am-9pm, located in Selfridges’ brand new BodyStudio. The Bodystudio, with a brand new salon by Daniel Galvin and a large internal garden, showcases the latest in activewear, lingerie and sleepwear. It’s the perfect destination for all things healthy.
‘We’re absolutely thrilled to be bringing our food and philosophy to Selfridges,’ said Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley. ‘Now everyone can experience the Hemsley way of eating at any time, in beautiful surroundings, where they can relax, meet with friends and enjoy great food.’

The emphasis is on provenance, organic and naturally grown or reared produce. Much-loved recipes from the Hemsley Sisters’ international bestselling cookbook, The Art of Eating Well, and highly anticipated follow up, Good + Simple, are at the heart of what is on offer. From their nourishing and restorative bone broth to spiralized dishes, each recipe is thoughtfully curated, offering customers home-cooked, wholesome food that is naturally free from gluten, grains and refined sugars.

For lunch, think hearty soups, sumptuous stews, mouthwatering salads, comfort food favourites and freshly baked breads from The Art of Eating Well, plus new recipes from their forthcoming book Good + Simple and exclusives created just for the café.
Take a break from shopping with an energising Power Smoothie or a warming Chicory Latte and enjoy enticing treats and snacks such as Blueberry Muffins made with coconut flour, almond-based Chocolate Chip Cookies and one of their most popular sweets, deliciously decadent Paradise Bars.
Come evening, chill out with a refreshing Blueberry, Lime and Lavender Cocktail or a glass of biodynamic wine alongside enticing canapés like Jasmine and Melissa’s party favourite, Cucumber Maki Crab Rolls.
The sisters will also be revealing never before shared Hemsley recipes favoured by their private clients, such as their popular sponge cakes made from cannellini beans with avocado icing. For those who are in a rush or wanting to pop in for a quick bite, a takeaway option is also available.
