Greenberry Café - Primrose Hill, London

Read what the critics and bloggers are saying about our food.

"The menu at Greenberry, as flexible as Beth Tweddle, fulfils the demands of breakfast, dinner, lunch and tea - all the human frame requires - plus the newer requirement of bar snacks. Various breads baked in-house make their own contribution and render special a first course of eggs Benedict. Juicy breast of Creedy Carver chicken partnered with Imam Bayildi, Greek yoghurt and warm flat bread is a plateful of rewarding intricacy. Kitchari, an Ayurvedic grain-based dish recommended for cleansing and thus appropriate for this time of year, is made with yellow lentils and courgettes garnished with strips of fried okra and pickled onions. While I was enjoying and maybe even benefiting from this, Reg was congratulating whoever it was who thought to put Caesar salad together with Dedham Vale rib-eye steak and chips. Roasted hake, squid, mussels, saffron and curly kale was another culinary matched set."

"Greenberry Café is a bright and bustling, on-trend, exposed-brick, eclectic-menu and all-day-dining sort of place, where we squeezed into a small table at the skylit back and had delicious pickled herrings zakuski with beetroot, horseradish and sour cream, which is on the menu as a dainty homage to Trojka and none the worse for it. We also had Stoke Newington cured smoked salmon, red and wild and oaky, with terrific soda bread and a generous tangle of sautéed wild mushrooms with roast onions and goat curd."

"Greenberry's simple breakfast menu is served until 3pm, but at noon it segues into a lunch and dinner menu of South American, Indian, Japanese and European dishes. This might sound like fusion too far, but this globalisation is handled with care. The Japanese dish called nasu dengaku was made with small baked aubergines, glazed with white miso, garnished with chopped peanuts (not the more usual sesame), and served with a smoked aubergine relish; East meets West at its best. The kitchen seems just at home with European dishes. A tarte tatin was perfectly baked, the apples perfectly caramelised and served with a scoop of cinnamon ice-cream."

"For my starter I really got into the local vibe and had Stoke Newington smoked salmon with soda bread and Camden Wheat Beer. You'd never expect it, but this turned out to be a terrific combination. My friend Neil had sea bream ceviche, passion fruit and avocado - zingy and appetising and fabulous with Tim Adam's Fairfield Block Single Vineyard Semillon. I stuck with fish for my main course - roast cod, herb and olive quinoa, tamarind purée, and the Semillon hit the spot again. Neil chose a lamb dish from the daily specials and a glass of gutsy Jumilla. We couldn't resist pudding, so Neil had some of Morfudd's home-made vanilla ice cream with Pedro Ximenez poured over and I had roast and raw pineapple, pain d'épice, coconut and limeleaf sorbet (with a glass of Arneis Passito). All excellent."

"Fluffy scrambled eggs and gloriously thick smoked salmon, moreish eggs benedict and creamy porridge are served at brunch. Hungry yet? The lunch and dinner menu is a more sophisticated twist on modern cuisine. Think Daylesford Organic meets Ottolenghi; chic, foody clientele combined with fresh, healthy food and an eclectic influence of flavours.
