Head to Granger & Co. for a delicious, Aussie style brunch
Relaxed, unfussy and effortlessly cool - It all makes sense when you find out Granger & Co is the brainchild of Aussie Bill Granger. With great atmosphere and service, it's easy to while away a couple of hours here and kick back for a morning with a leisurely brunch.
The coffee here is great, but more importantly, start your day with a decent Bloody Mary. Opt for either the classic or the 'Clamato' juice version - clam and tomato juice - for subtle spice and depth of flavour.
If sweet things are your style, the ricotta hotcakes are a tempting stack; doughy, comforting and drizzled with honeycomb butter. Utterly delicious. If you fancy something savoury, the classic breakfasts are big platefuls here, with runny poached eggs, just ripe avocado and verdant piles of kale. True to Aussie style, there are also plenty of healthy options too, including smoothies, chia porridge and courgette fritters. The buckwheat bowl is a big bowl of bright greens, with rose harissa, goat's yoghurt, poached egg, avocado and sunflower sprouts. There are some interesting ingredients there, but it all comes together as a tasty and slightly more virtuous option.
Craving something sweet? Go for the pumpkin spiced brownie. Marbled with subtly spiced pumpkin and rich, rich chocolate, these are utterly divine. Best offset by a coffee, this is the perfect way to round off a brunch.
