There’s thoughtfulness to the menu because it’s accommodating to customers who might not have big appetites and the items are price sensitive, making Cnr Café & Bistro an accessible and viable place at which to eat out.
Breakfast includes corn fritters, hollandaise and French toast. They also serve sandwiches – bread options include rye, seed or French loaf, sourdough and gluten-free. You’re able to pick and choose what filling you want.
Then there are the signature items that include burgers, beef fillet and fish dishes, with side options like sweet-potato chips, shoelace chips, cauliflower rice with pumpkin seeds and salad. A range of pastas and pizza also feature.
The vegetarian items, though not extensive or exhaustive, are outstanding. Take, for instance, the Buddha bowl – you can enjoy it on a cold Johannesburg morning or a freezing winter’s night. It’s an ensemble of ginger-glazed edamame beans dusted with sesame seeds, oven-dried tomatoes, fresh pear, sunflower shoots, hummus and sweet-potato chips. It has sweet flavour notes, a hint of chilli and it’s so delicious. The taste stays with you long after you’ve had the dish.
On the dessert front, fresh, fluffy, moist and tasty treats – including cheesecake and brownies – await you.
The usual suspects: juices, coffees and teas, as well as smoothies, shakes, freezos, and beers and ciders.
Attentive, helpful, and efficient.
Relaxed, unpretentious hippie-esque vibe. It has a magnetic pull because of its calm and inviting atmosphere.
