It’s a quirky venue with an outdoor slanted/industrial type design and whether you’re sitting inside or out, at a table or lounging on a couch, it’s part of nature in the city with cars flying past on the busy street on one side and chickens wandering in the parking area on the other.
It’s a mix of modern local food including skilpadjies (liver of lamb wrapped in netvet with two eggs, a poppy seed muffin and tomato chutney) for breakfast or Karoo lamb burger on a mosbolletjie or Cape Malay chicken livers (in a creamy Malay sauce with bruschetta and crispy bacon) for a light lunch. Or you can go all out with a mushroom risotto or duck leg served with baby potato, baby spinach, mushrooms and mustard sauce. For dessert it’s either chocolate fondant or Rooibos malva pudding or opt baked cheesecake, lemon meringue or carrot cake. Or to stick to a modern interpretation of local favourites, start with pumpkin fritters layered with bacon, three-style mushrooms and sweet cream sauce and conclude with some lavender sauced pancakes. That should do you for the day!
It ‘s not wildly exciting and perhaps the beers from what they call Our Darling, would be a better pick. There’s a good selection of hot and cold non-alcoholic drinks from coffee and tea to smoothies and milkshakes.
There have been complaints in the past and while the food takes a while, everything went smoothly, and the table was kept informed.
Ambience is what this one is all about. It’s offers many options of where you want to sit and what kind of meal you want to have. The design is unique and perfectly suited to the spot and the style they have adopted – casual and comfy. If you don’t like waiting for meals, you could wander off to the nursery close by or check the pottery studio just across from the café.
A good chill with friends where no one is too fussy, and the choices are varied enough to suit different palates with a strong South African slant to the selections.
