Early birds start the day here with an espresso and a fresh croissant or bagel piled with cream cheese. Or take a tray and stroll past the vast selection of tapas, salad, a variety of cured meats like the kosher pastrami, imported and local charcuterie and smoked salmon to create your own lunch or stock up for a picnic. They have one of the best selections of pickled and cured fish such as chopped herring, rollmops, Danish herring and gefilte fish (fish balls), all made on the premises. Those with a sweet tooth will delight in their traditional Jewish and other pastries, and the cheesecake is to die for. For crunchy preservative and trans fat-free melba toast – take home a bag of their wafer thin bagel chips.
Ethical shopper tip: The variety of fresh and smoked salmon products is sourced from Franschhoek.
