Steampunk Benedict
Pasture reared free range eggs poached just right (*tell us just how you like it!), veiled in a tangy, buttery hollandaise, and topped with the perfect balance of crisped bacon and sweet cherry tomatoes. For an equally satisfying experience, swap the bacon and tomatoes for silky smoked salmon with delicately dressed baby leaf salad. Served on your choice of toast.
Retrofuture Burger: Meaty
Meaty: 200g Usana grass fed beef patty, dripping with emmental, wild rocket, tomato, topped with an Usana pasture reared fried egg, then finished with a bacon and espresso chutney. Served with
Retrofuture Burger: Veggie (V+V)
Two succulent, thyme-roasted brown mushrooms, stuffed with artichoke & sesame pesto, stacked with caramelised onions, wild rocket, blistered tomatoes, and smashed avo. Served on a fresh (vegan) bun with fries on the side
Our South African twist on exotic nostalgia - we poach our free range eggs gently in a chakalaka-inspired tomato sauce, topped with goats cheese and served with a warm chickpea and aubergine salad, and toast of your choice.
Power Oats Bowl (v+v)
Organic rolled oats, quinoa, chia seeds, flax, vanilla and cinnamon, rested in oat milk overnight and topped with coconut yoghurt, toasted coconut flakes, and honey-torched banana.
Smashed Avo on Toast (v+v)
Simple and honest. Crushed avocado stacked on fresh toast (choose sourdough or 70% rye), with our homemade seed pesto, and topped with a sprinkle of toasted sesames and a squeeze of fresh lemon.
Roasted Tomato Soup & Truffled Cheese Toastie (v)
We nearly called this toasted cheese and tomato. But that would be misleading. Yes, this version of the pairing will be a classic one day. For now, you can savour the future. Two types of tomato, roasted with garlic, paprika and herbs, and blended into a smooth, velvety delight. Served with a crunchy, yet gooey, ultra-cheesy, truffled cheese toastie. Yes! It’s definitely meant for dunking!
The 'Choripan' of Truth
So we’ve stolen an Argentinean street food classic, and made it our own - forgive us Evita! Our country style pork sausage is slit down the middle and crisped in a hot pan ‘til it’s sizzling, then stuffed into an impossibly fresh roll, and finished with rocket and a punchy, tangy, herby chimichurri crema that’s guaranteed to drip down your chin.
Truth Toasted Croissants
see below
We lovingly handcraft and bake these bad boys onsite every morning, and we daresay they give the French a good run for their money. We pack them full of incredible ingredients and then toast them to buttery, crunchy perfection. However, if you’d prefer any of these killer combos as a toasted sarmie instead, just say the word - you can choose between sourdough, 70% rye, or brioche:
Bacon & Cheese
Our bespoke free range bacon, married with a creamy, melty emmental.
Bacon & Espresso Chutney with 2 Cheeses
Lathered with our special house chutney, paired with a combo of gooey emmental and fluffy goat’s cheese.
Biltong & Cream Cheese
Carpaccio-style, super-thin sliced biltong, with a ballsy, horseradish cream cheese.
Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese
Local smoked salmon trout, capers, and a zesty, herbed cream cheese.
Smoked Salmon, Goat’s Cheese & Artichoke Pesto
Topped with dressed wild rocket and toasted sesame.
Tomato, Basil & Melty Cheese
Basil pesto, sliced beef tomato, and emmental - a classic combo for good reason! (vv) Vegan? No problem! Swop out the butter croissant for sourdough, and ask for vegan mozzarella instead - add R10
Mushrooms, Aubergine & Zesty Artichoke Pesto (v)
Sauteéd button mushrooms, roasted eggplant, goat’s cheese and our homemade artichoke pesto. (vv) Vegan? No problem! Swop out the butter croissant for sourdough, and ask for vegan mozzarella instead - add R10
Macadamia French Toast
