‘Flavourful, healthy and nutritious’

That’s how the owners of City Road’s new eatery would describe their salads, which are now available for the Old Street crowds

Superb news if you work close to Old Street, or if you just like good food and artisanal coffee generally. Found on City Road, atis is the area’s new all-day eatery where you can get your fix of made-to-order salads, warm bowls, coffees, alcohol-free beers and cold-pressed juices. Created by husband-and-wife team Phil Honer and Eleanor Warder, a “plant-forward but flexible lifestyle” is central to atis, so you’ll find vegan, vegetarian and meat-based options available. atis announced their arrival by dishing out 100 salad bowls for £1 last week and now they’re in full flow serving breakfast on-the-go, salads in your lunch break and hearty dishes at dinner-time. There’s also an in-house barista specialist called Maurizio. Warder, a former sommelier at Holborn’s Noble Rot, says: “We have strived to create a modern and stylish space where people can come for a break outside of their working day and know that they can get a bowl of food that will be full of flavour, healthy and nutritious. “The idea came from wanting to fill a need for a grab-and-go in London where the food, the space and the experience are all in line with each other – premium, modern and refreshing.” atis opens from 7.30am every weekday (and 8.30am on Saturday) with sample dishes including Avo smash on sourdough bread, tamari seeds and coriander; Mushrooms on sourdough toast, parsley yoghurt, a sprinkling of dukkah; and seasonal Kale Ploughman’s. Their Dahl-ing bowl, meanwhile, features a tasty-sounding and health-conscious blend of lentils, spinach, cherry tomatoes, and some other tasty greens – topped with a mint and curry yoghurt dressing. To drink, atis is also your place for “specialist drinks, including Kombucha on tap” for those who need perking up after a dreary day at their desk.
