London’s best places for banana bread

London’s best places for banana bread

Banana bread is the BEST ever excuse to eat cake for breakfast and London has some amazing ones offer. Whether its topped with cream, sprinkled with nuts or served with bacon (yes, that’s a thing) here are London’s best places for banana bread.

1. Palm Vaults, Hackey.

…with coconut yoghurt, berries and agave syrup.

This veggie/vegan cafe in Hackney is a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach. Their ethos is good food, done healthy and looking amazing. Check out this banana bread that looks like a work of art with the prettiest aqua latte hiding in the background. It’s gooey, sweet and warm. Never would you have known it was vegan!

2. Lantana Cafe, Camden.

…with toffee sauce, grilled bananas and berries.

The Aussies love their banana bread and Australian born Lantana is home to a great one. This cafe is mostly famous for their sweet corn fritters but their toffee sauce, caramelised banana and berries bressert is defo one to try. Bressert is not a spelling mistake, it’s breakfast dessert 🙂

3. Half Cup, Kings Cross.

…with coffee cream and pecans.

This cute little coffee shop is a short walk from busy Kings Cross station and definitely worth a detour. With a great sounding morning menu, their take on banana bread certainly did not disappoint. Hot, sweet bread with cool, coffee cream and crunchy pecans on top. Being only £4 that’s a breakfast bargain right there!

…with eggs, bacon and maple syrup.

Yes, that’s right. Banana bread with eggs, bacon and maple syrup. Who knew? Turns out the Canadians did and this is Frizzantes version of a Canadian breakfast and it’s unusually good! You’ll find this Frizzante on a farm in East London. Once you’ve eaten go for a wander to see the chickens.

5. Copperhouse Chocolate, Angel.

…with chocolate, natural yoghurt and berries.

Jaz and Juls are two former flatmates and chocolate lovers who own this lovely cafe in North London. Their little shop is just off the beaten track and does their own range of hot chocolate plus a full weekend brunch menu. This banana bread is on there and the mix of sweet chocolate, sour yoghurt and warm cake is very good.

9. Daisy Green, Victoria

…with mascarpone and flaked almonds.

Another Aussie cafe takes banana bread and turns it into something worth getting out of bed for. This is the Beany Green banana bread sandwich with mascarpone and berries. The restaurant itself is pretty beautiful and you should have a look at their menu. The Australians sure know how to brunch!
