In the nood…
If you’re a fan of the delicious and nutritious salads, sandwiches, juices and superfood smoothies at nood food in Soho, then you should definitely check out their offerings at Pure Fitness in ifc. You don’t have to be a member of Pure Fitness to enjoy nood food; simply walk into the ifc branch and snap up the products we’ve grown to know and love. And don’t forget to try their new green ‘Pina Kale-ada’ smoothie and a ‘Matcha Mint’ smoothie… yum! They’ll also be selling ‘J31S Cold Brew Coffee’ – perfect for giving you that much needed caffeine fix. With organic coffee and tea, cold-pressed grab-and-go juices and cleanses as well as raw breakfasts and snacks available, this is going to be your new one-stop shop for all things healthy. Can’t leave the desk? nood food’s ifc store also does free delivery to selected buildings in Central, including Exchange Square 1, 2 & 3, ifc 1 & 2, and ifc mall. Talk about convenient!
Britain’s Got Collabro
