Food

Breezeblock is the ideal place for a relaxed brunch, with an all-day breakfast menu that includes a beans-and-bangers dish of grilled, herby free-range pork sausage on a bed of South Indian-style curried beans served with your choice of bread. The generous portion of eggs mirza is another favourite – a bowl of baked delight featuring perfectly smoked brinjal seasoned with mint, turmeric and tomato.

For those with a sweeter tooth, pancakes are a delight, or sample the creamy oatmeal options jazzed up with spicy cinnamon apple, berries and chocolate or caramelised nuts and dried apricots.

The lunch menu offers fresh, crunchy salads to fulfil your seven-colour meal needs, and for those who fancy it, sweet butternut dumplings drizzled with butterscotch sauce are mouth-watering.

Drinks

Nothing beats a mimosa made with freshly squeezed orange juice and a hit of ginger – the menu does say you can combine their juices as you like. Those who want a buzz with their brunch can choose from a small but acceptable list of popular local beers, MCCs, wines and spirits. Health junkies aren’t forgotten either – a vegan smoothie with a shot of espresso, banana, peanut butter and coconut milk provides a healthy energy boost.

Service

Attentive, friendly staff are another drawcard for Breezeblock’s loyal repeat customers.

Ambience

Seventies-style retro tiles and mid-century furniture, a stream of natural light and an immaculate indigenous garden combine to lend this well-spaced venue a warm and inviting feel.

Best for…

Catching up with friends and family in a relaxed setting.

    There's a breezy, retro-chic new kid on the block, tucked into a little corner of Brixton, offering value-for-money breakfast and lunch options in a perfectly designed light-filled space with quirky little touches that throwback to the kitsch elements of the 70s and 80s. If you're over 35, nostalgia may be kindled by the familiar ugly-funky chairs or the naughty knotty pine cladding or the breeze blocks themselves; while the under-35s will still appreciate the hip. happening vibe, the budget-friendly food choices and the free wifi. On my first visit I met a friend for brunch at 11 am and we remained there through a late lunch till closing time at 5pm. That ensured my return. Repeatedly. With an emphasis on fresh, healthy food balanced by just-sufficient choices in the comfort food and wickedly decadent departments, the menu invites patrons to pick and choose and linger awhile. During the week, this is a perfect coffice. On weekends, it's a lekker spot for a leisurely brunch with friends and family. The colourburst mural and succulent plants in the sun-drenched courtyard are harbingers of a parade of succulent aromas, sights and flavours. The colourful palette is created by visually enticing food presented on an array of fabulously mismatched crockery placed on the tile-topped tables. From fragrant leaf tea poured into a paper-thin antique bone china cup and saucer (which I instantly coveted), to creamy oatmeal topped with the autumnal hues of caramelised nuts and dried apricots offered up in turquoise porcelain that evokes Miami art-deco, Breezeblock delivers a feast for the senses. With neither pretension nor fancy embellishments, it's refreshingly down-to-earth and offers unobtrusive yet attentive service. One of the cheapest meal options is a melodic pairing of avocado and harissa on homemade buttermilk toast; another is an aromatic chickpea and spinach stew. Both are transcendental taste experiences. Proving that tasty wholesome food needn't cost the earth. The warm salad of lentils, yellow cherry comatoes, sundried tomato, chickpeas, bell-pepper and carrots, topped with optional feta (other topping options are blue cheese or bacon) is a winner. As are the Lebanese-style eggs and the variety of omlettes on offer. The sandwich options, made with health or buttermilk bread, are pretty damn good too. As is the coffee, Have a sweet-tooth? Treat it with some pancake love. Topped with crumbled speculaas (Dutch spice cookies) and ricotta; or mascarpone and berries. Savory options are also available if sweets leave you cold. I could go on singing the praises of the breeze that wafted this new hangout into my 'hood; but I'd rather just urge you to come see for yourself. I'll probably be there when you do.
