If you go down to St John’s Wood today you’ll be in for a big surprise…
Well, maybe not a big surprise given how rapidly restaurants from the Daisy Green family seem to be popping up across London – most recently seeing Peggy Green moor up on the river in Richmond. But you will be in for some seriously good food at the latest addition to the ever-expanding Australian-inspired café empire: Johnny Green (can you see a pattern forming here?).
Let’s talk brunch, because that’s what these guys from down under do so well.
As with all the other Daisy Green cafes, Johnny Green whisks up a mean batter, and you’ll find the chain’s timeless favourites here like the Buttermilk Blueberry and Golden Gaytime pancakes. Trying these, or the Award Winning Banana Bread Sandwich, is a must for those with a bit of a sweet tooth. If you’re more Camp Savoury, try the Sweetcorn Fritters or the Dirty Daisy (she’s dirty, but delicious).
Johnny also serves up the Green family’s famous fizzy bottomless brunch: choose one sweet and one savoury dish, and down as much plonk as you want in 90 minutes for less than £50pp.
As with any family, no one member is exactly the same as the next, and all the Green brood – from Scarlett to Timmy – all have their own unique aesthetic. And Johnny is no different, except he does have an extra, and rather enticing, little ace in his apron pocket. Johnny Green is home to the group’s test kitchen and development chef, which means brand new dishes and exciting culinary creations are available for you to try, and feedback on, in St John’s Wood first. So technically, you could help shape the DG menus for the rest of the city.
Just don’t let the power go to your head. That’s what Johnny’s mimosas are for.
NOTE: Johnny Green is open daily. You can find out more, and book a table, HERE.
