I’ve been neglecting my Breakfast Hunt for a while. I’ve pretty much settled on two options for the moment, either R10 breakfast at Beleza or breakfast at the Neighbourgoods Market. However, a short notice breakfast appointment for 8am on Saturday morning forced me to try something new (Beleza & the market only open at 9).
We needed to go somewhere in or near Greenpoint as time was tight and I had heard about a funky new place called Miss K’s. It is located just after the old 0932 (if you’re going toward town). With all the development happening on this section of Main Road, I think it’s going to become a very popular strip. Miss K is getting in there early with a few other places and I think it will pay off big time.
I started with a coffee, which was great, my friend had the chamomile tea (no green tea on offer, that’s not very Cape Town). For breakfast I had the Miss K breakfast (R42) which was basically an english breakfast including sausage and mushrooms. The eggs were done perfectly, soft yolk but the albumen completely cooked. The bacon was crispy, which I also like and the sausage was tasty. I would say it was a very good breakfast. Although at R42 is also one of the most expensive.
My dining partner helped herself to the muesli and fruit bar. The fruit was of a high quality and very fresh, and the homemade muesli with yoghurt was of an equal standard. Items from the muesli & fruit bar are priced by weight. In this case, the cost was R42 (strange coincidence). Also quite pricey, despite the high standard.
While we were seated, the staff were filling up the pastry display with some delicious looking pastries. Everything looked very tempting, but we resisted the temptation to purchase anything to take away with us. There is also a lunch time ‘buffet’ a la Melissa’s.
The decor at Miss K’s is really funky and modern, but the light colours (white and light blue) make for a relaxing environment. There are several tables outside for al fresco dining, but road noise can make dining inside quite appealing. The staff, including Kirsten (Miss K) herself, were friendly and helpful.
I enjoyed the experience of dining at Miss K, but for a poor guy, like me, trying to live the high life in Cape Town, it will have to be a special treat rather than a regular breakfast spot (along with Manna).
