After having a gps meltdown and having to use good old maps, I finally found this little spot right behind Wonderers Stadium!

Despite being in a good location, it’s slightly outshone by ‘Vodoo Lily Cafe’ which is just 2 doors down and was packed when I walked by. We sat inside and did not even realise, until after breakfast, that there is a pretty courtyard out back! (Ok, so I didn’t pay enough attention when I read the name)

This is a cute spot for a decent breakfast if you don’t mind spending a bit. It didn’t break the bank but for R130 (breakfast and a mouth-watering Chai Latte) it’s not cheap either. The mint and ginger tea is worth a try if you’re avoiding caffeine and dairy or if you’re just more of a tea fan.

The bacon was delicious, streaky and crispy, just like I like it! I was slightly disappointed with their famous Galettes though (I had the scrambled egg and bacon one) as I felt like there was far more ‘pancake’ than there was filling.

The service could definitely have been better but it wasn’t to the point of frustration.

Nice spot with lots of potential, just in need of slight fine-tuning! 🙂
