SquareMeal Review of Greenberry Café

Primrose Hill was once nicknamed Greenberry Hill (a punning reference to the notorious hangings of Messrs Green, Berry and Hill back in the day) – hence the title of this eclectic, all-purpose eatery. Flexibility is the name of the game as the kitchen goes on a globe-trotting tour taking in everything from viennoiserie for breakfast to all-day ‘traiteur’ plates of Ibérico Bellota ham, salt beef sandwiches or pickled herring zakuski with beetroot, horseradish and sour cream. The full menu also stretches its legs, promising the likes of sea bream ceviche, miso-glazed aubergines or breast of Creedy Carver chicken with imam bayaldi, ahead of tarte Tatin or raw and roast pineapple with pain d’épice, coconut and kaffir lime sorbet. The food is supported by a lively list of beers and terroir-led wines that also goes walkabout in search of quality.

Primrose Hill is known for being one of London's most idyllic areas; there's the grassy mound for which it's named after - with its views across the city - towering period homes with creamy facades and yummy mummys at every turn. And, at the heart of it all, is Regent's Park Road, studded with florists, cafes and boutiques. 

Those who have enjoyed a stroll here will already know of Greenberry Cafe, a stalwart of the area since 2012. With its bright green awning and gingham table cloths, it fits the bill nicely of charming neighbourhood cafe. 

The menu caters for all-day dining, offering a large brunch selection with homemade granola, fluffy pancakes with ricotta, banana and maple syrup, and jumbo oat porridge with honey and cinnamon. Of course, no brunch menu is complete without an 'eggs however you like' section, and Greenberry Cafe has some tasty-sounding offerings along this theme. 

As well as, eggs florentine, royale and benedict, there's roast squash with cherry tomatoes, feta and pomegranate with poached eggs; shakshuka; and a full English with a vegetaraian option, too. If you still aren't satisfied, enjoy a slice of sourdough toast, decorated with the likes of fresh crab; avocados with sweet potato hummus; or smoked salmon. 

Come evening and the menu opens up once again with a breadth of dishes drawing inspiration from all corners of the world. For starters expect the likes of Scotch Angus beef tartare with Burford Brown egg yolk or tempura courgette with white truffle mayonnaise and shaved Pecorino. While large plates and mains include Cornish Hake with infused coconut cream and brown shrimps, as well as Sutton Hoo chicken Schnitzel, and soba noodles with shiitake, wakame, pak choi, tofu, tamari and sake broth.

The wine list isn't available online but has been curated by the cafe's owner who favours organic and biodynamic producers, and the team are also very capable of mixing up a mean cocktail, too should you fancy something stronger. 


What's the menu like?

Expect lots of UK produce and modern twists on British classics, alongside fresh pastas and even Japanese-inspired dishes.

The Greenberry serves some of the best breakfast and brunch for miles including fresh crab and poached eggs and all the usual favourites, as well as offering a mouthwatering, changing menu for lunch with offers such as Roast cauliflower Salad,fresh herbs, radish, dukkah & sweet potato hummus, evening menus are just as seductive and don't miss the owners homemade ice cream, but what really makes the restaurant so special is the staff guided by 'M' the amazing owner, there's a buzz, an energy and you never leave in the same mood you arrived however bleak the day.

My favourite local restaurant
The Greenberry Cafe does everything from breakfast, brunch and dinner and they do it very well. Always high quality, fresh ingredients, excellent specials and reliable menu favourites. Beware, if you turn up on a weekend for brunch without a booking, you are likely to be disappointed, it is absolutely heaving and tables are on a 1.5 hour turnaround. The atmosphere on weekday evenings is much more relaxed, happy hour cocktails and a much more leisurely affair. The staff are all great, one of the owners M is usually there running around and making sure everyone is looked after. I wish there were more places like this!
