I went for brunch in Notting Hill at an oat-based restaurant and tried savoury porridge for the first time. 

Just a short walk from Hyde Park past Queensway and Bayswater underground stations, you can find brunch spot Oatis. 

The restaurant in Queensway offers healthy brunch classics ranging from avocado on toast to smoothie bowls, with options for every dietary need.

The restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor seating and has a laid-back, modern vibe to it. 

Oatis is till service only, and so we sat down to read the menu before going up to place our full order.

My boyfriend ordered the Best Berry Around smoothie, which contained mixed berries, banana, and chia seeds. 

Compared to most smoothies in London, the smoothies at Oatis are generous in portion so you won't be left without a drink by the time your food arrives. 

Both were delicious and the perfect treat on a warm day.

It was my first experience of a savoury porridge and I was pleasantly surprised. 

The roasted chickpeas were the star of the show for me, adding a depth of flavour to the porridge as well as texture.

My boyfriend ordered the O.G. Stack, a stack of three pancakes topped with coconut yoghurt, agave and raspberry and chia jam. 

His pancakes were made from gluten-free oat flour and so were slightly denser than standard pancakes, but more filling as a result.

He said: "They don't look like much at first but they are delicious. The jam goes great with them."

We also shared the Avo Toast, consisting of sliced avocado, lemon, pumpkin seeds and a dressed rocket salad with kimchi.

Oatis is a great option for a brunch spot in Notting Hill with a twist.
