Lantana Take-Away - Charlotte Place W1
Lantana as far as I'm concerned, so I was very happy to see the new Lantana take-away shop is open, next door to the existing cafe. One of the issues with Lantana was the space - it got so crowded in there during peak times and sometimes the take-away coffees took a while to be made. Solution: open a new take-away outfit next door to free up the cafe for eat-ins. Genius. The new take-away shop is clean and simple - offering a selection of cakes and yummy stuff to go with the consistently good coffee. I had some delicious toasted banana bread today - I used to hate anything with banana in it, even though I liked bananas...not sure why but banana cake, banoffie pie, Barney Banana ice-creams (any Aussies reading this will know what these are) all made me want to barf, then suddenly a few years ago it was all OK and thank God for that because now I can enjoy the joy that is toasted banana bread. Still no word on where the previous occupant of this space, Viet Baguette has gone - if anyone knows, please let me know.
