Food
Combining practicality with charm is Parc’s black wall, and hanged black surfboards of their creative seasonal menu boasting enticing choices of their all-day breakfast and light meals. Their clever take on eggs Benedict, called Not-So-Benedict, is a popular dish. You get perfectly poached eggs, a choice between mushrooms, bacon or wilted spinach with their delicious lemon hollandaise sauce and capers on rye, ciabatta or potato-and-rosemary artisanal bread. If you’re lucky, you could find a Benedict special that goes with a Bloody Mary cocktail. For an alternative breakfast idea, try the banana bread French toast with fresh banana, mango and lime curd with brown sugar and allspice crumble and ginger cream.

Light meals include salads, as well as soup and quiches of the day. Don’t miss out on their exotic open sandwiches, which include a vegan BLT option and braised butternut-and-chickpea curry roti wrap with chilli spiced cabbage salad, coriander, banana and a yoghurt and cumin chutney. Food is delectable and generously plated.

Those with a sweet tooth can choose from a selection of cakes, muffins and scones.

Drinks
There’s a small but smart wine list, plus a few craft beers, inspired milkshakes and a selection of fresh fizz and iced rooibos tea.

Service
Warm and efficient. There’s a trust established between the customers and the servers that proves a consistent rapport.

Ambience
Nestled between the Glenwood Bakery and a few unrelated businesses, it’s a cosy, hip and laid-back café that spills onto the outside.

Best for…
This is the best all-day breakfast spot in town and it’s great for casual Saturday brunches.

    Definitely the best eggs Benedict I've had! I was a bit disappointed at how small the coffees were, but other than the, definitely a good choice for breakfast

    Another favourite for breakfast/brunch especially on a Saturday when they have some live although subdued music which makes you feel like you just want to sit there all day. I love their not-so-benedict breakfast and there are so many other delicious options.

    The breakfasts here are sensational. Grab a spot on the sidewalk on a Saturday and listen to live music, a weekend win!

    SELF RITEOUS & UNREPENTANT
    Since when does a salad of a 'Waldorf / Roast Chicken theme' deserve to contain a large piece (4 x 5cm) of translucent, fatty, gelatinous chicken skin, with visble tufts out the follicles? Well, according to Parc managment, this is the way to go.
    With the eating experience ruined and hardly a morsel tpuched, we requested the plate be removed by a rather unapologetic manageress.
    I opted to order & pay for a Choc Brownie instead.
    Upon presentation of the bill, the chicken salad was still included. After enquiring why, we were lectured in no uncertain terms that that is how the salad is prepared - after all, the menu description was 'roast chicken' salad - nothing wrong with it & we must pay. Asking for the manageress to engage & discuss with me proved futile, nor did the owner care to come over & discuss at the time, rather opting to send a message that the offensive salad would be taken off the bill. By now a poor atmosphere + vibe had developed, with other patrons now aware of the furlore.
    With manageress hovering & muttering under her breath, the owner made a cameo appearance, also toatally unapologetic & in fact darn right rude in his entire demeanor in front of my family, telling us unrepentantly that "the customer's not always right" and that's the way they present chichen in this salad, and that best we leave his restaurant & never return.
    Success in the food industry requires ATD and a Customer Centric approach, with a dash of humility, grace & above all manners - something this owner + staff clearly lack.
    I hasten to warn anyone intending patronising this venue dare not question the quality, integrity or interpretation of their food for obvious. . reasons.
