Tucked away down a lane off Goodge Street, Lantana [lan-tan-uh] is a trendy Australian cafe named after a hardy weed that thrives in unlikely environments - an apt name for a cafe which has flourished on foreign soil since opening in 2008. Flat white coffee, corn fritters and toasted banana bread are the most popular orders but it's worth trying others things from the menu which often changes to keep it interesting. Chose from brioche French toast, Scottish smoked salmon and poached eggs or slow cooked Boston baked beans. Though small, the cafe has outdoor seating and the kind of individuality you get from an independent cafe when its owner, Shelagh Ryan, has grown up infused with an enthusiasm for the cafe culture of her home town, Melbourne. You can read her highly rated food blog at scramblingeggs.blogspot.co.uk. Such has been the success of Lantana that a larger sister cafe, Salvation Jane, opened in Shoreditch in 2012.
