Birthday Breakfast @ The Cape

Who said that birthday celebrations must be soaked in alcohol? What nicer way to start a birthday morning rather than with a hearty breakfast surrounded by family? So here we are, at The Cape, a South African bistro in the suburbs. I have wanted to tell you about this place for a long time and I was very happy to hear that we would be celebrating a family member's birthday there this morning.

The décor is my absolute favourite: shabby chic, industrial railings mixed with cute chandeliers and mismatched tables and chairs. 

The food is always of the highest standard because Joan and her husband, the owners, are always there to personally look after guests rather than customers. We always go for a milkshake, no matter what time we get there, their cofee-based one is to die for, so is the vanilla! And another thing you must try when you  visit is the bacon. Remember, we are in the suburbs, which means that all of he ingredients come from local farms, hence you get the juiciest, slightly salted rashers of bacon, either with eggs or in an impressive club sandwich. I have to admit that I occasionally stop here to grab lunch when I feel like treating myself, a simple bacon sarnie from The Cape goes a long way! 

Back to breakfast, this time I decided to ditch the eggs and go for the Bircher Muesli...oh my! I have never had muesli soaked in juice before and I loved it! It's lighter but utterly tasty. Bircher muesli is based on oats mixed with sultanas but also freshly grated fruit, apple in this case that makes it a fragrant morning pick-me-up!
