Lantana, formerly known as Salvation Jane, has been a Salvation to an Antipodean very much missing a corn fritter brunch. This Old Street Aussie eatery was crowded when we visited on a late Saturday morning, and as such service was a bit haphazard. But although our order was lost and our coffee delayed the staff were extremely friendly and apologetic, and the food well worth waiting for.
While the corn fritters may not be your traditional fry up they are the perfect hangover cure, and the French toast with pecans is the best I’ve ever had. Portions are generous and the condiments and sides are perfectly matched. We’ll be back, but – as you can’t make a reservation – next time I’ll go early!
