“Friends have returned from Australia full of the joys of Bill Granger, now we can get the real thing!” – so say fans of these “cool and airy”, “posh-brunch heavens” who are prepared to endure the savage queues and “sometimes indifferent service” for his “brilliant and very different breakfasts”, and other “healthy and innovative food (although a menu which requires a dictionary might be seen as a bit pretentious!)”. However, at the W11 original in particular, there are critics who say: “it’s not worth the wait given plenty of alternatives nearby”.
“Crazy queues are a letdown”, but that’s the worst gripe about Aussie star chef, Bill Granger’s “chilled”, “light and airy” hotspots, rammed particularly for his epic brunches – “interesting, but non-fussy combos” that are superbly “fresh and tasty”. Top Menu Tip – “the legendary Granger scrambled eggs on sourdough toast”.
“There’s a permanent queue around the corner”, at these “laid back” Antipodean haunts, rammed with “yummy mummies” and “ladies who lunch”; brunch is the massive deal here – “lo-cal tasty combos” that “draw inspiration from all over the world”.
“For an easy meal with a stylish crowd in a fun setting”, these “chilled” Antipodean diners, in Notting Hill and Clerkenwell, fit the bill, especially for brunch; fans say the “uncomplicated” Asian-influenced food is “appealing” too, but critics say it’s “inconsistent” and “overpriced”.
