Brunch in London is a definite do.
A year ago, I came across The Greenberry Café in Primrose Hill. Known for it’s inviting green exterior and small tables for two scattered outside. It’s a must to have on your radar this spring and summertime.
Green checkered tablecloths set the scene outside for the perfect flat lay Instagram shot. I’ve certainly been there and sat outside before. However, they don’t take reservations. So be patient, it’s hard to grab one of those coveted tables!
While we have visited and sat outside in the past. A few weeks ago we went to the Greenberry Café when the weather was still a bit chilly. My god. The place was overflowing with people. Luckily we didn’t wait too long to be seated, but we did choose to sit at the bar. We were hungry, OK? The bar is also totally cute though and I’d definitely recommend coming back for a few glasses of wine with a pal – or for a date.
We started with coffees, an Americano for me and a cappuccino for Joe. I obviously had Joe pose with the cappuccino though for “the Gram”. I’m not even a little sorry about it.
What to order?
Sourdough toast is the real winner on the menu.
I ordered avocado, sweet potato hummus , poached eggs and dukkah. What’s dukkah you ask? An Egyptian condiment consisting of a mixture of herbs, nuts, and spices. It is delicious. A great mixture of flavours that somehow pull together to create an excellent brunch.
Joe decided to copy the people sitting next to us and ordered Portobello mushrooms, poached egg, hollandaise and truffle oil. This was melt in your mouth kinds of goodness. Don’t we all go a little bit crazy for truffle oil these days? Not that I’m stopping anytime soon. It’s delish.
I love the staff there as well, and we could hear the owner as well working the room. It’s a nice spot, friendly atmosphere and damn good food.
Honestly, if you couldn’t tell already. I’m a really big fan of visiting The Greenberry Café and I’m looking forward to a summertime filled with stalking their sidewalk for an outside table.
