So I told y'all ages ago that I would eventually get around to reviewing Granger & Co in Notting Hill, and well, months later, I finally did it! I've been going there quite a bit lately after a friend took me, I've become a liiiittle bit addicted to their Ricotta Hot Cakes and Courgette Fries!
Situated on Westbourne Grove, this trendy brunch spot in Notting Hill is a must if you love casual dining and fabulously yummy food! Started by an Aussie, Bill Granger, he's brought the Aussie 'cafe culture' to London, and because of this, he is my hero. I've been missing the Australian cafe culture ever since I moved back to London from Perth (WA) three years ago, so when my friend took me here, I fell to my knees in thanks. Not literally - that would be weird.

I had my usual, the ricotta hotcakes with fresh banana, honeycomb butter and maple syrup drizzled over for good measure, along with my favourite courgette fries with lime and coriander mayo...

My friend Mr H had the fragrant fish curry with jasmine rice and cucumber relish, he said it was delicious, and he loved the fact it was quite a sweet and fruity curry.

That empty looking corner of the counter is usually filled with huge creamy cakes and delicious home-made muffins. Sadly we had a very late brunch (4pm), so they had all gone from the afternoon coffee rush by the time we got there :'(
If you feel like popping in, expect to queue first thing in the morning and around lunch-time, this is a very popular place! But just wait patiently and they'll get you seated as soon as possible, and I promise it's worth the wait. Also, I've never tried the burger as I'm a creature of habit, but it looks amazing! If you try it - let me know...if it's good enough, maybe I'll break my habit next time I go there ;)
