St John Square is filled with places to eat. One such place that is renown and fill with great expectations for delicious food is at The Modern Pantry.


The Modern Pantry is a restaurant that embody the philosophy of the desire to please and excite the palate through the use of modern ingredients and everyday cooking.

Lead by the talented Anna Hansen MBE and Head Chef Rob McLeary. The breakfast here works on the classics but with a true Modern Pantry twist.

So I order the intriguing and alluring tea smoked salmon on toasted muffin topped with poached eggs and yuzu hollandaise (£9.5)

This was flawless and utterly delicious.

The yuzu adds a wonderful citrusy and refreshing unique fragrance to the hollandaise that enriches the sauce perfectly. The tea lifted up the salmon perfectly make it savoury and delicious. A must have when here.

Also for a light side dish, a mix fruit salad with lime and rose water (£6.5) and a cup of fresh orange juice (£3) compliments the dishes well.


The sweetcorn, feta, green chilli and curry leaf waffles with smoked streaky bacon (£8.8) was well balanced in both flavours and texture.

Modern Pantry lives up to its name and exceed my expectation in the execution of their breakfast menu. A must try place for me to get a new take on the classic breakfast dishes and it will leave you happy for sure!
