There are few places suited to brunch as perfectly as Doppio Zero in Bedfordview. Pop by in the early afternoon and dine outdoors in the sunshine of the tree lined street. Their menu items are vast, catering to vegan, vegetarians and meat eater alike. While you may opt for a healthy start to the day, we recommend the Breakfast Stack instead. With sweet potato rösti, a fried egg, streaky bacon, rocket, tomato, red onion, brown mushroom and avo, this will delight any palate.
If you happen to be at Eastgate Shopping Centre around brunch time then stop by at Harpers for a delightful meal. Here, you can get freshly made scones, muffins, croissants, waffles and crumpets to satisfy any craving. But if you’re looking for something a little more filling, have no worries. Harpers is the home of breakfast in the East Rand. For something different, give the Croque Monsieur a try. This toasted ham and cheese sandwich is smothered in cheese sauce and Gruyere and grilled.
For a healthy take on brunch, head over to tashas at Village View Shopping Centre. Get your vitamin fix with a fruity smoothie or a freshly squeezed fruit juice. Alternatively, tuck into a nutritious breakfast of poached eggs, asparagus or spinach, lemon sauce and seeded bread. Add a side of crispy parma ham, macon or bacon to add some meatiness to your meal. Brunch just got healthy.
Located at Bedford Square, Europa offers residents of Bedfordview a Mediterranean take on brunch. Indulge in breakfasts, light meals and sandwiches inspired by the flavours of Italy and Greece. The Corelli, with health bread, a poached egg, halloumi, brown mushrooms, tzakziki and tomato, avocado and onion salsa, makes for the ultimate Greek feast. Whatever you do, don’t leave Europa without trying one of their robust coffees.
Happily Ever Laughter
To spoil the family with a special brunch, pay Happily Ever Laughter a visit. This restaurant and venue is the perfect spot to take the kiddies for a day out in the sun. With the jungle gyms, slides and other fun activities, the little ones are bound to work up an appetite. Fill them up with a plate of deliciously sweet pancakes or some scrambled eggs and toast served in Happily Ever Laughter’s unique frying pan.
Nothing makes for a better brunch than a good bakery. And what better place to get freshly prepared confectionery than Fournos? Fournos at Bedford Centre offers diners the option of sitting down for a meal or grabbing a quick treat on the go at any one of their two kiosks. The sit down menu has many choices of coffee, tea, healthy or hearty breakfasts and DIY sandwiches. But we can’t resist their selection of flaky croissants. These buttery morsels are available in a range of flavours, including plain, chocolate, blueberry and almond. All of these flavours are definitely worth the indulgence.
