Yeasty aromas of freshly baked goodies behind the glass counter entice the locals back again and again.
Some of the regulars also come from a long way to indulge in signature breakfasts with all the trimmings like The Blouberg (perfectly poached eggs, crispy bacon, oven-roasted tomatoes and creamy polenta) and The South African (eggs any way you like them, boerewors, home-made tomato relish, cheddar and corn pap).
Or go for the beautifully cooked classic eggs Benedict. Fresh ingredients, homestyle cooking, classic flavour combinations and seriously good value are a winning formula. You’ll also find favourites like vetkoek with curried mince, as well as plenty of salad, sandwich and omelette options for vegetarians.
If you fancy brunch, try one of the yummy burgers – the house Blouburger with bacon, cheddar and caramelised onions is a winner – or layered sandwiches, such as pulled pork, avo and peach chutney on ciabatta.
If you’re too full for dessert, take home a selection of home-baked cupcakes, scones, pies, cheesecake and buttery quiches.
A small, reasonably priced wine list by glass and bottle, as well as great coffees and traditional shakes.
Attentive, friendly staff are on the ball and serve you pronto.
