Salvation Cafe

If you’ve been missing out on Saturday morning brunch at Salvation Cafe, you’re in luck. You can now order a selection of breakfasts, coffees, sweet treats and ready-made meals for delivery or collection at their 44 Stanley restaurant. While Salvation Cafe is back up and running, they are working under strict health and safety regulations. This means that all their meals will be cooked in small batches and in advance. However, this does not detract from its freshness or taste value. Pre-order your weekly meals from them to see you through the chilly season with ease. Orders must be in by 16:00 on Wednesdays for delivery on Friday afternoons. Delivery within a 5km radius is free, while it will cost you R12 per km if you live further away.

Our top pick: Cape Malay Lamb Bobotie

Nothing tastes more like home than a hearty lamb bobotie. But it can take hours to prepare! Instead of slaving over the stove after a hard day’s work, pre-order yourself a Cape Malay Lamb Bobotie from Salvation Cafe. This family-style meal should feed at least four hungry tummies and at only *R160, it’s a steal!

Check out the rest of Salvation Cafe’s ready-made meal offerings on their website. Order yours by contacting them on 011 482 7795 or via email at eat@salvationcafe.co.za.

Fournos 

If it’s Mediterranean-inspired cuisine you’re after this winter, look no further than your nearest Fournos Bakery. You can visit them in-store if you wish or order your pre-cooked meals for the week via their website.

No more pondering what to cook only to discover that you don’t have the necessary ingredients to prepare it!

Our top pick: Chicken Lasagne served with a medium salad and a fresh loaf of bread

Lasagne really is the ultimate winter comfort meal, isn’t it? But it takes an age to assemble all the layers just right. Rather order a pre-made chicken lasagne from Fournos. It comes with a fresh salad and a loaf of bread. Talk about a balanced meal without all the extra fuss! Fournos also makes quiches and full roast chickens to order.

#repost @tamryn_sher ・・・ Happy days are here! I don’t need to cook tonight! We decided to order one of the @fournosbakery ‘it’s in the bag’ meals for dinner We got a delicious, hearty, tummy-filling beef lasagna, medium greek salad and a loaf of fresh bread. It’s enough to feed 4 ppl, or in our case 2 meals each and its at an affordable R200 (the🍪we ordered are extra) . . You can swop out the beef lasagna for a roast chicken or a vegetable quiche if you prefer. I think I’m going to order the quiche next I liked that all the packaging was sealed with a tamper-proof sticker for peace of mind too What good meal deals have you seen at the moment? . . . #DinnerSorted #NoCooking #HeatAndEat #ItsInTheBag #lasagna #dinner #fournosbakery #delicious #hearty #beeflasagna #bakery #greatdeal #itsasherthing
