Silo by Joost – A Healthy but Delicious Green Option


Silo by Joost is small newly opened cafe in Hardware lane by passionate eco-entrepreneur and sustainable design champion, Joost Bakker. His cafe is created by using “the stuff other people throw out” – and it works. Silo is fitted out with entirely recycled or recyclable material – from the communal dining table to the crates that line the ceiling. The result is a funky and cosy little cafe – where you can watch as the chefs prepare your food as the kitchen and the dining area are pretty much as one.

The food is healthy and tastes spectacular. Pictured above is the Quinoa mix as well as the Mushroom Risotto which is out of this world. Its the type that is cooked perfectly and makes you want to keep eating it and trust me you will be wanting more even after its gone (even though you will be really full!). The taste is creamy and buttery all at the same time. The dishes that they are served in adds to the green theme that this cafe follows.

This new concept for cafes of being green is one to look for in times to come – what better way than to enjoy delicious healthy food and help out the environment! Will def be going out to try out their Breakfast menu!
