Eggs as you please Jim
happier, healthier, pasture reared chickens produce tastier eggs. Served on the best artisanal sour dough that Cape Town has to offer, perfectly pan toasted with real butter, because, well, simple and delicious.
Breakfast Burger
The classic burger for a new start to the day - 180g Frankie Fenner grass fed, beef patty, dripping with emmental, wild rocket, tomato, a fried egg and and a bacon and espresso chutney. Served on a brioche bun with fries on the side.
Steampunk Benedict
The perfect balance of our real bacon, sweet confit tomatoes, zesty and buttery hollandaise sauce on toasted sour dough. For an equally satisfying experience swap the bacon and tomatoes for smoked salmon with olive oil dressed baby spinach.
Breakfast Burrito Toastado (V+V)
Comfort food, Beyond Meat™ Texan style chilli con carne, on a flour tortilla with shredded cabbage for some crunch, with sides of guacamole, smoked tomato salsa and fresh cilantro. Note Preparation time 15-20min, it took 5000 years of civilisation to get this right, what’s a moment between us
Roasted Tomato Soup & Cheese Toastie
We nearly called this toasted cheese and tomato. But that would be misleading. Yes, the pairing will be a classic one day. For now you can savour the future. Two types of tomato, roasted with garlic and chilli, blended into a smooth soup, served with a crunchy toasted cheese sandwich.
Croissant with Bacon & Cheese
Bacon. Cheese. Croissant. Toasted. Who knew? Well, we did. Now you do too. See?
Croissant with Tomato, Basil & Cheese
Vegan sandwiches are so yesterday. Filled croissant toasted, with that perfect balance of acidity umami and well, yum. Say yes. Order it. No regrets
Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese Croissant
We wanted to make a smoked salmon sandwich. Capers? Sure. But still uninspiring. Then it hit us. Toasted croissant. And voila. Magic
Smashed Avo on Toast
Simple & honest. Crushed avocado stacked on butter toasted sourdough (or 70% rye), with goats cheese, sunflower seed paste and just the right amount of Sriatcha sauce.
French Toast with Blueberry compote
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.
The amazing amalgam of mildly spicy traditional chakalaka sauce and tomato base, with black and white beans, served with sour-dough toast, two poached eggs and topped with goats cheese.
Classic Burger & Chips
Just the expected, unexpectedly moreish and juicy. FFMM but not just on a Friday. Butter toasted sesame seed bun, caramelised onion, rocket and tomato, with coarsely ground 100% prime beef patty fried in beef tallow.
Beyond Burger & Chips
The Beyond Burger is a plant-based burger that looks, cooks, and satisfies like beef. It has all the juicy, meaty deliciousness of a traditional burger, but comes with the upsides of a plant-based meal. The Beyond Burger has 20g of plant-based protein and has no GMOs, soy, or gluten.
Freshly made Tagliatelle Carbonara
You know when you can see the pasta is homemade? Then the flavour confirms it? Umami flavour bomb, hand crafted fresh tagliatelle, tossed in a traditional sauce of cured pork, Grana Padana, egg and a hint of cream
The Perfect Steak & Chips
A 300g Grass-fed steak cooked to perfection, flamed to finish and Café de Paris butter ready to melt to perfection, gently placed on top.
Baked fresh daily at 06h00 am
Pain au Chocolat
Croissants aux Amandes
Caramel Cheese Cake
A Sabayon cream cheese with caramel mou(soft chewy caramel)
Carrot Cake
A deliciously moist crumb, the perfect amount of spices, carefully crafted with just the right balance
Chocolate Eclair
Eclair means "flash of lightning" in French - so named because its eaten in a flash
Chocolate Brownie
Reminiscent of the 1896 Chicago classic, a light and moist centre, smothered in ganache to keep it that way.
Lemon Meringue
The Medieval Swiss classic of lemon curd and baked meringue. Divine.
Apple Tarte
Caramelised apple with crispy praline and Sable Breton biscuit, smothered in a caramel glaze.
