Awesome all-day breakfast spots in Pretoria

The most important meal of the day deserves to be served all day, which is why we’ve rounded up Pretoria’s restaurants serving all-day breakfasts.

Afro-boer (Die Wilgers)

The all-day breakfast menu here will blow you away. There’s a delightful pumpkin tartlet with seed brittle and chai cream; mosbrood French toast; sardines on rye; pecan granola with yoghurt and paw-paw; baked oats with whisky, toasted hazelnuts and cream; eggs Benedict; and a Boerie Boepie comprising delightful eggs, ‘bitter grof’ putu pap, kaiings, boerewors, bacon and grilled tomato. The Corporate Indulgence is a stuffed croissant and creamy peppered mackerel pan. The list goes on and on. Relax outside on the stoep with your meal, which overlooks sprawling gardens.

BICCCS (Brooklyn Bridge Mall)

Owner Forti Mazzone says his dad Giovanni came out of retirement because he was bored beyond belief. Their new shop is in the Brooklyn Bridge Mall, right across from Brooklyn Mall, with easy-access parking. The menu is straightforward and offers simple dishes such as fried or scrambled eggs on a croissant, toast with bacon, and smoked trout. The pain au chocolat with a cappuccino shouldn’t be missed. For a decadent treat, you can also enjoy a decadent milkshake made from one of the gelato flavours of the day.

Blos Café (Faerie Glen)

The Blos Breakfast comprises two fried eggs, a bacon-and-cranberry frikkadel, a sweetcorn muffin, toast and butter. The spicy mango egg skillet is a three-egg, crispy bacon and ciabatta delight with mango sauce, while the Blos Benedict features ciabatta instead of an English muffin. There’s also vegan French toast and a breakfast slider with a rump steak patty, egg mayo, gherkins, caramelised onion and rocket. The omelettes are great too, but if you’re on the lookout for a decadent treat, go for the banana bread with honey-cinnamon butter or the rolled oats and quinoa porridge. Do note that breakfast is only available all day during the week – on weekends and public holidays, it’s only available until 11.30am.

Brunch Street (Hazelwood)

The newly opened Brunch Street is a welcome addition to the bustling restaurant neighbourhood of Hazelwood. A few small tables outside under umbrellas, plus a quirky upstairs room, make one feel as if you’re dining in a log cabin somewhere quiet and serene. A stacked bacon bun comes with crispy rashers of bacon and is served with brown sauce, while The Fry Pan features pork sausages, shakshuka baked beans and cheesy soldiers. There’s also a Mediterranean breakfast and a classic frittata.

La Coco C Food Purveyors (Silver Lakes)

Jeanine Knipe is the sharp-shooting young restauranteur who runs a tip-top establishment on the edge of the city that’s all about homemade, natural, locally sourced and high-quality ingredients. Expect açaí bowls, quinoa pots, gluten-free franola, French toast and egg dishes to your heart’s content. There’s the mushroom pesto eggs; a Mexican breakfast bowl; sweetcorn-and-chilli scrambled eggs; and eggs Benedict with gypsy ham, pulled Pork or smoked trout.

News Café (Hatfield)

This is one of only a few places close to the Hatfield Gautrain station where you can get an all-day breakfast. The décor feels like a mix between a glitzy coffee shop and a night club (they have an extensive cocktail menu too), and the wait and management staff are all extremely attentive and helpful. Their all-day breakfast options come with white, brown, sourdough, health or rye bread options and includes an assortment of options with eggs, bacon and all the trimmings. There’s also a classic eggs Benedict with bacon or spinach and feta, and a lovely breakfast burger.

Karoo Café (Die Wilgers)

Open since 2005, this casually rustic suburban restaurant is a haven for many who want a relaxed atmosphere with unusual but delicious fare. The Skilpadjies breakfast consists of liver wrapped in caul, two eggs and a poppy seed pap muffin with tomato chutney. The mini veld breakfast can be ordered either with or without lamb chops, while the Klein Karoo breakfast is made with lamb sausage. They also serve pumpkin fritters for breakfast – a layered stack of fritters, bacon and brie, served with relish and rocket on the side. The menu also includes roosterkoek, omelettes, French toast, huevos rancheros and a lovely salmon breakfast that comes with baby marrow, roosterkoek and hollandaise sauce.

Khaleo (Hazelwood)

This is a small restaurant with a few tables outside. Design your own breakfast from the various sub-headings, where you’ll find items like smoked trout and sirloin strips. Other breakfasts include carrot cake French toast that may be served with streaky bacon; a Spanish omelette with chorizo; and buttermilk-rye waffles with grilled pineapple, honey, toasted almonds and homemade crème fraîche.

Julie Bean (Lynnwood)

Even though this establishment is still relatively young, it already has a supportive following. Fresh bagels can be ordered with scrambled eggs, bacon and cheese, or cream cheese and honey. Croissants and lovely old-fashioned butter scones are served with homemade jam and mature cheddar. All-day breakfast items include creamy oats served with butter, milk, honey and cinnamon; avocado toast; chicken livers in a mild peri-peri sauce on toast; and savoury mince on toast. Julie Bean also does its own version of the full breakfast, named the Corner Breakfast, as well as a quirky breakfast wrap with scrambled eggs, bacon, mozzarella, rocket and tomato chutney in a tortilla.

The Meatsmith (Queenswood)

As the name suggests, this is a boutique butchery offering all kinds of hand-crafted meat products, fresh meat, bread and other goodies. But it also has a great espresso machine and must-try breakfast options. The salmon, cream cheese, scrambled eggs and avo on toast is a generous portion and will get you fuelled for the day. Other offerings include great quiche (biltong; feta and butternut; or bacon, zucchini and sundried tomato), a Butcher’s Burger, and the Famous Cleaver Sandwich.

TOAST Food Co. (Lynnwood)

Tucked between a cycle shop and a fabulous Asian supermarket, Toast is a day-time eatery that offers many lovely options, from simple eggs or avo on toast to a delightful sweetcorn breakfast that includes poached eggs with a sweetcorn purée, roasted cocktail tomatoes and toast. For a more decadent breakfast, try the eggs royale, the chocolate French toast or the Cuban breakfast with diced pork belly and chimichurri. Of course, there are healthier options on offer too.
