Critic's review

Greg Landman

Food
Even though breakfasts are madly popular here, their baked goodies are legendary, which makes tea times equally popular. Fabulous little cakes, freshly baked scones with preserves and cream, lemon meringue pie, baked cheese cakes, all fabulous to look at and even better to eat. The meat pies are the best on the West Coast and put a whole new meaning into stick to the ribs goodness. Breakfast—which is served all day-- could be the Blouberg, poached egg with grilled polenta, crispy bacon, mushroom and thyme sauce and toast—irresistible. You can calm yourself down with the South African, which is eggs served with cheddar and corn pap, boerewors, and grilled corn and toast, a meal to last you through the day. Traditional Eggs Benedict with bacon or smoked trout with poached eggs, of course, are served with delicious homemade Hollandaise sauce. There is a health option with muesli and yoghurt, goji berries and honey so you needn’t feel too guilty. They have a small selection of local wines not badly priced.

Service
Always friendly and professional –like being at home

Ambience
Of course the view—Table Mountain seen across the bay in its classic pose, something people come from all over the world to see , is thenumero uno attraction but outside seating is limited and much in demand. The interior is cosy and welcoming with the fragrant smell of baking everywhere.  One can take some pastries home to prolong the experience.

Best for...
All day breakfast with a view.

  • Been coming here 1-2 times a week for the last year or so. Most Amazing time for me is early in the morning. I get welcomed every time, sometimes with my cup of delight in hand already as it's my usual or on its way ordered already. Give the Cafe a try as it's dishes are well portioned, different and tasty, reminder if it's not on the menu just ask for them to change instead off scrambled have an omelette or so white, ask if have banting bread etc. Simply, EAT your Heart out.
