‘Certain to be a roaring success’ – Gron Kafe, Oakwood, reviewed

Anja Madhvani keeps it clean, but not really.

Workingunusual hours means ‘midweek weekends’ for a lot of us, and can be tough to find a good brunch spot during the week. After frantic and hangry Googling, I was relieved to find that Grön Kafe had finally opened their doors.

This is the latest effort from Matt Healy of Matt Healy x The Foundry, and the team behind Rabbit Hole Travelling Coffee Shop. It’s a vegan-friendly cafe with plenty of healthy options (which I, er ‘accidentally’ swerved).

Today felt like a day to challenge myself, by means of excessive eating and over caffeinating. So I ordered five dishes, morphed into Augustus Gloop, then took a cab home where I could unbutton my jeans in solitary self loathing. Thankfully I had company to assist in the gluttony, but this is basically a story about a girl who indulged to an almost fatal level, and is now anxiously awaiting the consequences.

Grön Kafe is bright and clean. There are some nods to the decor at Matt’s restaurant, with lampshades designed by Nicolas Dixon (who did the mural at Matt Healy x Foundry) and his signature neon lighting, this time reading ‘Keep It Clean’. This gives good continuity to the ever growing Healy brand.
