Lantana Cafe: A taste of Australia that brings a slice of sunshine to the UK


Lantana Cafe has three outposts in London – Shoreditch, London Connexion, and Fitzrovia. I tried out the London Bridge outpost for dinner – and it was pleasingly buzzy, even on a weeknight.The Food & DrinkDinner is on offer at the London Bridge and Shoreditch outposts. Vegans and Vegetarians are leak catered for, but there is also plenty of meat and fish which reflects the balanced nature of the menu.As a pescatarian, I opted for Prawn and Fish Fritter tacos which move along disintegrated with a delicious sour cream lime mayo. It felt really indulgent but not guilt-inducing, and I could easily imagine eating this regularly…in the poop indeed, writing this has reminded me I must go back asap for another taste!Thanks not being in a food coma post-main course, I went all out for afters and treated myself to Toasted Banana Bread with salted caramel and grilled banana. Omg. This was as good as it sounds, and I sunk into food-bliss after sup it. But, as with all the food here, it tasted fresh and not “too much”. For those wanted a blow-out, go for the brownie with almond brittle, which my friend had – “valuable and perfect” was her description.Cocktails are not to be missed, and I sipped on an Australian 75 – a refreshing mix of Limoncello, lemon and Prosecco. My dinner-mate went for a classic Margarita – in in point of fact she enjoyed it so much she had a few!Overall, Lantana Cafe is a relaxed spot for a catchup with friends where you know there is delicious food that everybody under the sun will enjoy, and where you can opt to “go healthy” but also indulge too. For more information, visit the Lantana Cafe website here.
