My wife and I had a late breakfast on Saturday morning, Croissant with Salmon, Cream Cheese and a squeeze of lemon, very nice.
I had the beans on toast, sower dough bread I just don’t get for toast, it’s simply too tough to cut, very dry dish, needed a lot of olive oil to make it edible. The end result was very nice, Coffee very average, not bad though.
The staff could do with a little training, they are polite and presentable but still need the rough endges taken off.

Presentation was great but burger was bland, tasteless and over cooked. Even more frustrating when charging premium prices.
Will not go back.

Four of us popped in for a mid-week breakfast. The restaurant was not too busy and service was friendly and fast. Being a sunny morning, we sat outside.

We started with fresh juices - beware, the one with chilli in it does contain a bit of a bite :-)

The menu offers a few good dishes for vegetarians- one of the few eateries that do. Good coffee. Plenty of free parking.

On the fringe of the Constantia Valley the Bistro is housed on the historic Alphen Estate that forms a portion of the original Seventeenth Century Dutch East India Company outpost called Wittebomen. Easily accessed by car, with adequate free parking the child friendly location under beautiful oak trees is ideal for a quick stop. (I was not there for a meal or to stay in the adjacent boutique hotel)

We came here for brunch on a winter day but the sun ameliorated the cool wind on the outdoor terrace which one needs to allow for May-August. The place was very busy and while the orders were taken quickly, the actual delivery was slow as they were quite busy Staff were friendly and helpful.. The breakfast menu is not huge but has 1 or 2 innovative surprises. The mushroom tartines were especially great but the asparagus item was a disappointment as it could have been billed as asparagus on semi-toast! Prices were fair although salmon in the main breakfast dish pushes the price over R100. Beware: breakfast orders cannot be taken after 11:30 while the lunch menu only starts at 12:30pm.
