Lantana on Southwark Street is the newest addition to the Lantana Café group, which also has sites in Fitzrovia and Shoreditch. Founded in 2008, Lantana is one of the pioneers of the Antipodean artisan café scene in London. In addition to excellent coffee, Lantana serves a delicious food menu with multicultural influences and pride themselves on warm and friendly customer service.
Located opposite the Menier Chocolate Factory, the venue is split in two levels: the main restaurant area on the ground floor and a private event space in the lower ground floor. The main restaurant features large front windows and is therefore full of natural light by day, but softly lit by night. It has capacity for 50 people for a sit-down meal or 100 for a standing reception. It boasts a stylish cocktail bar with stools. The event space in the lower ground floor has capacity for 40 people for a sit-down meal or 80 people for a standing reception.
Lantana offers a wide array of canapés and finger foods and the team is always happy to cater for any specific dietary requirements. The venue also offers a concise but international wine list, including still and sparkling wines from Australia, Italy, South Africa, France and Spain.
