Before we start a day of exploring, we need to fill our bellies. At Rosebank Mall, the hardest part is trying to choose between all the eateries. We'll just have a little something from all of them. From yummy pastas to beguiling cakes and sinful chocolate, we're going to feast!
For scrumptious Mediterranean-style fare, visit Europa. Here, you can experience classic coffees, stunning salads, gourmet pizzas and mouthwatering pastas. We love their Nutty Mocha, with macadamia infused espresso, dark chocolate and frothy milk. This pairs perfectly with the Gnocchi Al Funghi, these potato gnocchi are served with mushrooms, garlic, thyme and rocket.
This restaurant offers an a la carte menu as well as a splendid selection of cakes. Their menu is composed of breakfasts, sandwiches, french toast, croissants, quiches, salads, burgers, traditional meals and grills, meze and pasta. However, their passion lies with sweet treats, with about 20 varieties of cakes on offer. As Marie Antoinette said, "let them eat cake".
Lindt is just the thing for a decadent after-dinner treat. Spoil yourself with truffles, indulgent slabs and dessert chocolates. This Swiss chocolate is made from the finest grade cocoa beans to create a quality treat that you deserve. The Lindt store has a wide selection of Lindor truffles, Excellence chocolate slabs, Creation slabs and the Hello range. And they even offer tasters of their chocolates in store.
Now that we're fed, we can face the world. But what to do? Rosebank Mall offers a plethora of unique dining and entertaining experiences. All the activities on offer reflect the artsy vibe of the suburb.
Ster-Kinekor's latest offering, Cinema Nouveau, is now at Rosebank Mall. Cinema Nouveau offers art house titles and live screenings of theatre shows.
