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.
Bacon Butty
The Blokes from Blighty knew how to hit the spot with this one. Quick on the go, delicious, loads of layered, free range bacon, on a soft roll to soak up all the drippings….
Breakfast Burger
The classic burger for a new start to the day- 150g free range, 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 & Toasted Cheese Sandwich
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.
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..
Smashed Avo on Toast
Creamy avocado, toasted sour dough, keep it humble or dress it up
Tapioca Porridge Extravaganza
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
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.
Classic Burger & Chips
Just the expected, unexpectedly moreish and juicy. FFMM but not just on a Friday. Butter toasted sesame seed bun, 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.

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.
