Breakfast in the Bay

  • 03 January 2018 | By Kerryn Botha

Breakfast is by far the most important meal of the day. Every avid foodie and restaurant-goer would agree, breakfast is a more affordable way to experience some of your favourite restaurants without breaking the bank. Here’s just a few must visit breakfast spots to get your mouth watering.

Top of the list definitely has to be “Savages” on Park Drive. The gorgeous garden, Victorian style veranda, exquisite décor and scrumptious food all combine to provide their patrons with a truly memorable experience that is sure to have you returning regularly. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful which to make each visit truly. The "Victorian Royale" comes highly recommend. The eggs are always perfectly poached and the Hollandaise... flawless, not to mention the interesting crispy capers.



Next up is "Remo’s". Be prepared to step out of Nelson Mandela Bay and straight into a gorgeous little café in Italy, right here in the up and coming Baakens Valley. Remo’s having been one of the first restaurants to move into the Valley and was recently revamped, making it a must-visit this holiday season. If you’re a coffee connoisseur, this one is definitely for you, but be warned once you’ve had your first sip, you’ll be hooked. With friendly hellos chanted as you walk through the door; it’s not a bad place to be a local. So what are you waiting for? Seize the moment, cogli l’attimo.



The "Friendly Stranger" is a gorgeous, quaint and quirky little spot, that makes you want to visit and linger; sipping one of the best and most consistent cappuccinos in the Bay. They pride themselves on using only the freshest ingredients and make to order, so don’t be in a hurry. Place your order sit and enjoy your cappuccino and wait for what promises to be a scrumptious breakfast.



Another firm favourite is "Rhubarb and Lime"- the perfect place to catch up with an old friend. The friendly, helpful and relaxed staff create a comfortable environment, checking in and keeping you well fed and hydrated, but never making you feel rushed. What’s a catch up with a friend without just a little overindulgence? Rhubarb and Lime offer some scrumptious sweet treats, so after brekkie, live a little and be sure to give one of them a try.



Last, but certainly not least "Grass Roof". This one is particularly attractive to families. With ample place for the kids to play and have fun and a little farm store to pick up a couple of things for the kitchen. Grass Roof offers a wonderful country breakfast experience. It does get very busy on the weekends so allow for a bit of a wait – nobody likes a person with the hangeries.  



Nelson Mandela Bay is filled with incredible eateries, so don’t let your exploration stop here. When you find a special little spot, be sure to share it with your friends and family. Support local and be a part of showcasing all that our beautiful Bay has to offer.
