Roasted Tomato Soup & Toasted Cheese Sandwich

Oxtail Bredie Soup & Vetkoek

Creamy avocado, toasted sour dough, keep it humble or dress it up
Chia Pud (v+v+gf)
R70
A succulent and fruity breakfast for a high energy day, saffron poached pears, loads of chia seeds with coconut cream become pudding like. Fresh seasonal berries balance the flavours out. Try this one, seriously!
Tapioca Porridge Extravaganza
R65
Cassava root never looked better, tapioca pearls, coconut cream, a crispy almond tuile and a fresh salsa of strawberries, mangos and basil. Morning decadence
French Toast with Blueberry compote
R80
The only thing French about this American classic is the croissant, bathed in egg, fried in butter and laced with a berry compote and real maple syrup. Not enough decadence?…
Croque Monsieur

We didn't invent it, but we are trying to perfect it. Melt in the mouth brioche, comforting gypsy ham, luscious béchamel and cheesy, well, cheese. Oven baked as a triple decker sandwich.
Cafe du Salmon (gf)
R155
locally farmed, fresh bought salmon, patiently cured and gently cold smoked with coffee bean chaff. Prepared for you by butter poaching and serving it with delicate fennel bulb, gentle red onion laced crème fraiche and trout caviar. What would the caviar be with out some blinis we ask you?
