A bright and breezy Antipodean café – the first to open in the City’s Broadgate Circle restaurant complex.
They say it’s the early bird that catches the worm, and this bright and breezy Antipodean café – the first to open in the City’s Broadgate Circle restaurant complex – has been working hard to make loyal customers of everyone passing through its doors. Its modern, colourful interior, chirpy staff and loud hip-hop music – plus the quality coffee – certainly shake morning visitors from their stupor. And the pretty food displays, the pleasant terrace overlooking the piazza below, and little touches such as fresh flowers encourage them to linger.
The all-day menu ranges from Aussie-rules brekkies such as bacon and egg wraps or broccoli and sweetcorn fritters, to fresh, hearty salads and the sort of filling, protein-rich snacks that go hand in hand with the Australian reputation for healthy living. Think huge ‘power balls’ of meat and pulses, skewers and berry and nut smoothies. There are also plenty of sweet treats ranging from feather-light lamingtons (sponge cake with chocolate and coconut) and slabs of marshmallow-laden rocky road, to broccoli loaf cake and sticky ‘energy balls’. For after-work lingerers, there’s a sizeable drinks list, including cocktails.
Beany Green’s founder is a former investment banker, so it’s a good bet that there’s a solid market for healthy fast food in the heart of the City. But in terms of your investment, prices are reassuringly reasonable – a real plus in this part of London.

My favourite coffee shop in London corporatesville . Fabulous staff, yummy coffees and granola . The lunches are fab too and a great place for a nice glass of wine in the evening . Great cakes too. The staff always have nice little touches like giving you Easter eggs and , treating you to cakes. They revived my drooping spirits on so many days.
Friendly staff who know your name and delicious flat whites (every time). I work near Liverpool Street and visit this café every day (sometimes more than once)! The breakfast granola and banana bread are delicious - as are the lamingtons. Would recommend.
Beany Green is the kind of place where if you are a regular or semi regular customer they actually remember your name - its one of the only cafes in London you get treated like a person and not a number. Oh and the coffee is exceptionally good.. consistently :) I would run my office from here if I could!
Best coffee & food as a grab & go in London. Always my go to place!! I have coffee cravings for it all weekend!
Best flat white in the city is enough to win it but the diversity in their organic based foods, from amazing salads with protein balls to bottomless brunch, should excel Beanys way past its competitors.
Awesome service, great vibe and trustworthy music playlist...the almond milk coffee does it for me 👍
Great coffee, great food, great service, plus it becomes a bar in the evenings. What's not to like? :)
Awesome coffee, Beans from Australia and well roasted. After work is awesome as well. Good atmosphere to have a beer/cider. Excellent service.
Beany Green reminds me of stopping at Degraves street in Melbourne after a long commute to flinders street station in the early morning. A nice place to get a great coffee before the start of a day!
Just a great place that sets me up for the day with a great coffee and beautiful food ;)
I also love their Paddington branch. Best Aussie brunch
Love love love the personal service and great coffee! An amazing way to start the day. Such a welcoming fun and friendly place.
Incredibly friendly staff, live atmosphere even at 7 in the morning! And of course the coffee is amazing!
Great coffee. Great food. Great service. Independent, interesting & invigorating to see a good ol' Antipodean battler brand killing it over here in London town.
What a great place! Such a good vibe with the live music all day long. Super friendly staff and a brilliant healthy yet still incredibly delicious menu. The bottomless brunch was a complete steal ! We had a group of 4 and had amazing service all day long. The Aussie girls that work here are all so bright and bubbly making you feel welcome while you relax on the balcony. The broccoli and corn fritters with bacon and poached egg was superb however the banana cake we shared for dessert is worth going back for alone. Not to mention the rocky road, brownies, etc, etc...
Would return here in a flash. Excellent value and wonderful food. Win win.
Let me just begin by saying that breakfast is VERY important to me, so if I'm going to pay someone to prepare it for me, I expect the very best (not least because breakfast/brunch out is generally a rip-off). Well, for starters, I was quick off the mark to snap up Time Out Offers' exceptional deal for a bottomless brunch at Beany Green for just £20 (£18 after my Time Out Card discount), which meant that the whole thing was an absolute steal and secondly, the food and drinks on offer at this lovely cafe were simply divine!
We started with smoothies as we perused the brunch menu and finally settled on the homemade granola with Greek yogurt and berries and the banana bread sandwich with honeyed mascarpone to share. I don't feel as though I'm exaggerating when I say I was overcome with delight at the sight of the granola and the smell of the banana bread, and that was before our lovely waitress brought over our prosecco! Once we'd tucked in, we fully understood why that banana bread has won awards and finished the lot even though we were full to bursting.
Even though it's a small place overlooking Broadgate Circle, we didn't feel under any pressure to give up our table once we'd finished eating, nor that the staff thought us greedy for ordering hot drinks to finish (my sister said the coffee was nice, but I found the chai latte far too sweet), which meant that we could digest in the sunshine. All in all, it was a fantastic experience that I'd definitely recommend for a summer weekend (though perhaps not at full price).
