This is a great place for a smart leisurely brunch.
Joanna’s is an institution in Crystal Palace. Since the 1970s, everyone local knows that it is good for an evening meal, but fewer people realise that it opens at 10am to serve brunch. The full English is high quality and their smoked salmon and scrambled eggs are lovely, my personal favourite is the poached egg and Canadian bacon served on an English muffin. The tables near the window have a beautiful view over the city of London, which looks particularly good on a cold sunny morning.
It isn’t quite caff prices – but it has lots of papers, great coffee and you are never rushed.
A lovely weekend treat.
