Salvation Lantana the menu has Australian influences, in fact it’s actually very similar, which is no bad thing, although we were disappointment that the Baked Eggs hadn’t made the cut, a dish which is definitely one of Lantana’s highlights.Jane is sister joint of the much loved Lantana, only it’s located a little further East just minutes from Old Street.

Inside the cafe has a good selection of seating with windows looking onto a quiet square and outdoor tables should the weather permit. We visited for breakfast and tried the Corn fritters stacked with crispy bacon, fresh rocket, slow roast tomatoes, chilli jam and crème fraiche. The dish was made up of juicy slow roasted tomatoes sandwiched between two thick pancake style fritters which sat on top of a mound of rocket and were finished off with a cluster of crispy bacon – definitely not for the faint hearted this is one filling breakfast.
Almond bircher muesli with baked apple was another great dish and also super filling – so filling we couldn’t finish it. A Latte was served strong and hot whilst the fresh juices were particularly nice with an Orange, Raspberry and Mint concoction scoring high on our juice-o-meter.
Salvation Jane hits all the right spots for a posh breakfast, the only thing worth noting is it can be quite expensive – for a coffee, juice and meal you’ll be looking at around £15 – £20. That said the prices stay the same throughout the day which makes it a cheapish option for lunch or dinner and they also serve wine and beer.
