SquareMeal Review of Lantana

Australian-run Lantana built a bonzer reputation for its brunches, quickly expanding into adjacent premises. More recently the expansion has been in time, rather than space, with the advent of evening dining at ‘Shindig’. Here the “cosy and rustic” café – wooden tables, a coffee counter – is given night-time appeal by tea lights and a short, serious drinks list. Customers familiar with the daytime offering of high-quality breakfasts (from muesli to slow-braised beans with egg, chorizo and spinach) and Pacific Rim lunches (duck burger with kimchi mayo, say) can now tuck into a concise surf and turf dinner menu. Our baby back ribs were succulent and sticky, and a side of ‘hush puppies’ (corncakes with chilli mayo) made an indulgent feast – though a dish of octopus, squid and chorizo with smoked corn was variable. For pud, a large slab of chocolate brownie brought us back to café culture: underlined by excellent coffee.

London Eater silver reviewer 12 October 2011

Part of me doesn't want to write this review and inform everyone of London's best kept breakfast spot!! Lantana is a regular weekend breakfast spot for me. There's always a 30min-1hour wait but the waitresses keep you informed as to how much longer you have to wait and are so friendly that time flies! The menu is amazing.! Everything has a fresh and healthy look about it – even the bacon! My favourites are scottish smoked salmon w poached eggs, smashed avocado and cress on grain sourdough and the corn fritters stacked w crispy bacon, fresh rocket, slow roast tomatoes, chilli jam and crème fraiche. Try these – they're a must! And wash it down with a flat white or 2 – possibly the best coffees in town! The friendly service, consistently good food, and central location make Lantana the best brekkie place in London!
