In the middle of one of London’s prettiest high street’s is a little brunch spot I had been meaning to try for quite some time. Having heard raving reviews of perfect poached eggs and mouth-watering waffles, on a very sunny Sunday morning Tash and I decided to go and find out what foodie delights we had been missing out on at Greenberry Cafe.
Rocking up a few minutes late, Greenberry was packed full of hungry brunch goers. Our table wasn’t quite ready but the lovely waiter gave us an apologetic smile, took our drinks order and sat us down at the bar to wait. Spying on what goodies others were feasting on, and eying up the carrot cake on the counter, we were licking our lips in anticipation!
Ten minutes later we were shown to our table and over our tea and coffee, we began to scour the menu.
When it comes to brunch, I nearly always opt for savoury but sitting amidst the smells of warm gooey waffles and homemade baked granola, Tash and I were faced with the ultimate Sunday morning dilemma.
We too and frowed between eggs florentine or benedict and ummed and arred over pastries or croissants, and in the end it was the sound of the Vegetarian breakfast that won us both over. Served on sourdough toast come eggs any style, pan-fried halloumi, avocado, portobello mushroom and slow roast tomato. However, panicking at the thought of missing out on something truly sweet and delicious, we decided we needed the pancakes too!
The Vegetarian was absolutely yummy. The avocado melted in my mouth and as promised, the poached eggs were flawless and when prodded, oozed like a dream over the soft but crispy sourdough bread. It was the perfect sized portion to feel full but not someone-help-me-undo-the-top-button-of-my-jeans kinda full.
We could have stopped there.
But oh, am I glad we didn’t.
…mmmm berry berry good!
Served with ricotta, mixed berries and maple syrup, Greenberry’s soft and fluffy pancake dish is the perfect treat to satisfy a sweet tooth.
Leaving Greenberry we were stuffed full and satisfied, and in an attempt to redeem our slightly piggish breakfast ways, we took a wonder along the high street and ended our brunch date with a stroll up to the famous London viewpoint in Primrose Hill Park.
For a reasonably-priced scrumptious brunch in a gorgeous location, head to the busy buzzy Greenberry Cafe on Primrose Hill high street, and definitely definitely order a “side” of pancakes!
