I’ve found the new no. 1 spot for breakfast. Cafe Sofia is running a breakfast special which is a super deal. At R20 for an english breakfast and coffee, it makes Beleza look expensive. The alternative is the 3 egg omlette with feta, chorizo and peppers for R25 including coffee.
We went to the Cafe Sofia in Seapoint this morning to test the breakfast. The special is available at all Cafe Sofia’s (the other 2 are in Kloof Rd and Rondebosch). We both opted for the omlette option and it was pretty good. I would have like the filling to be cooked a bit more, but it was fine as it was. The 2 slices of olive ciabatta were awesome, and they brought butter and jam which I used on the second slice for a nice sweet end to the meal. The coffee was great, it came with hot milk and it was quite a big cup so one coffee was enough. The person sitting at the table next to us had the bacon and eggs option and it looked pretty good from where I was sitting and she was raving about it.
Service was ok, not the best but good enough that it won’t stop me from going back. I ordered a glass of water and they didn’t give me any uphill, just offered me ice and lemon with it. Admittedly the water never came, but I think that was a waiter issue.
So, I have my new breakfast spot. I look forward to reading your comments.
ps. don’t forget they have free wifi.
