This independent eatery has a magical courtyard, which is open all year round (thanks to its retractable roof).
Visit for brunch and enjoy an eggs Benedict and a rainforest alliance, fair-trade coffee or pop in at lunchtime and visit its fresh salad bar. However, it’s in the evening when Megan’s truly comes to life.
The garden is transformed into a cosy grotto of fairylights and green foliage, which feels a little bit like Christmas, even in July. Its twee gingham tablecloths and mismatched furniture make for a relaxed atmosphere and its evening menu offers diners a range of small plates, a couple of the café’s classic dishes include eggs shakshuka, sharing boards, plus steaks and kebabs straight from the grill.
I’d recommend the grilled goat’s cheese with pistachios, honey and fig and the crispy poached egg with chorizo purée, followed by the côte de bœuf for two.
