Restaurant review: Lantana Cafe

Just off Oxford street, this cute little brunch place is perfect for some pre-shopping brunch fuel and gets really busy.   

One of my good friends from work had found this cafe online. It had great reviews and you could see why! We went early, at around 10:30 on a Saturday morning, but by 11 there was a long queue outside the door. 

The staff here are really friendly, and make you welcome as soon as you arrive. I love this kind of cafe; it’s chilled out and homely, and you can relax with some healthy comfort food. 

We had mimosas to start (why not!) whilst we had a look at the menu. I landed on crushed avocado on sourdough toast, with a courgette and coriander salad. It was so tasty – I love avocado on toast and thought it was a nice healthy start to the day. I also had the ‘green machine’ smoothie made using celery, spinach and apple, cucumber and lemon. It was a new flavour experience for me and probably an acquired taste! 

I was going out for lunch that day, so wanted to save some room and didn’t get round to their selection of cakes, which looked delicious. Overall, the Levatana was really good and I’d recommend it for a brunch in central London. 

I spotted a gluten free bakery opposite the Lantana Cafe. I’ll be going back one day to check it out, so keep an eye out for the review! 

Price: Dishes were priced between £9 and £12, so not bad really for London. 

Rating: 3 out of 5 prawns 🍤🍤🍤

Why do I rate restaurants by the number of prawns? Because they’re my favourite food of course! 

Handy tip: there are a few other Lantana Cafes, one in Shoreditch and one in Camden
