Clubhouse type restaurants are rarely fun and exciting eateries, but Copperleaf, operated by CL Golf Catering, is different. The restaurant is vibey and fun, to the extent that the children may be a distraction for some, but if you book ahead and ask for one of the side booths, you could ensure a little bit of privacy.
This is an all-day operation, so in addition to a good selection of breakfasts, they also offer light meals, sandwiches, salads such as the Parma and pear salad, and a fairly easy-eating dinner menu. Starters include trinchado with toasted baguette, pasta dishes such as bacon and shrimp or brinjal and zucchini, pizzas, burgers, schnitzels, steaks, calamari, pork ribs all served with a good selection of side items. One can also choose items to create your own platter.
Finally, on their quiz nights they have specials available such as seafood paella, but the take-out section of this business is booming – people come in to collect food all the time, and what is better than tasty food on your doorstep at a fair price.
The wine list comprises three Champagnes from Mumm, various SA MCC’s such as L’Ormarins and Krone, and then on to a small but nice selection of still wines, such as Warwick First Lady and of course some Ernie Else wines such as the Big Easy range.
The management and wait staff are hands-on and attentive. They need to keep their wits about them on a busy night – they host a weekly Quiz-night, which is well-supported by the residents, and is quite a fun night out.
High ceilings with exposed beams, neutral colours and attractive textures contribute to an atmosphere that is far less clubhouse and much more modern home.
Good value for money food and a taste of estate living
