Fourth London Lantana Café to Land in Southwark

April 27, 2017

Lantana, the London­-based café chain, has secured a fourth site in the capital in Southwark through leisure property specialists Davis Coffer Lyons.

The concept, which already has outposts in Shoreditch, Camden and Fitzrovia, has secured the ‘West’ unit at Thrale House, Southwark Street on the edge of Borough Market. It is arranged over ground floor and basement with a total of 84 covers over 3,313 sq ft.  It is let on a new 25 year A3 lease inside the Act at a rent of £65,000 per annum exclusive. Lantana originally launched in 2008 by founders Shelagh Ryan, Michael Homan and Caitlin Ryan.

The news follows the restaurant letting of the ‘East’ unit at Thrale House in 2016 to O’ver, an Italian street food restaurant which uses pure seawater as a chief ingredient throughout its menu for its taste and health benefits.

Rob Meadows, Director, Agency & Leasing, Davis Coffer Lyons, said, “The Lantana concept has been pioneer of the Australian-run modern café scene in London, testament to the growth and proliferation of some exciting boutique coffee-led concepts in a sector of the market. There is a distinct and growing trend now for these brands to offer quality all-day food menu which can evolve to also capture evening trade.”

The local area around Thrale House is dominated by the Shard, London Bridge train station, Borough Market, as well as numerous thriving leisure operators including The Breakfast Club, Tapas Brindisa, Vapiano, Padella, The Refinery, and Coco di Mama.
