Arnold’s: Breakfast in Kloof Street

Sunday morning 9:30am and it is hot outside! Finally the wind from during the week died and the chilly air subsided! Time for breakfast out and about in the city centre.

Health Nut Breakfast

A booking is a must for Sunday breakfast at Arnold’s. We booked through Diner’s Delight to take advantage of a discount as registered users, but discovered that it was only valid for lunches and dinners. But we had a great outside table (there is a smoking and non-smoking outside section) and fantastic service!

Giant Croissant with Salmon and Cream Cheese

I had heard of the R7 breakfast, but did not believe it before I read it on the menu – Monday to Friday if you arrive before 7am! And consists of the same ingredients as “Mike’s Breakfast” @ R22 – 2 eggs, 2 bacon, ostrich wors, 2 grilled tomatoes, 2 slices of toast!

Eggs benedict do feature on the menu @ R35 (bacon) and R55 (salmon), but I decided to venture forth on the “giant” croissants with salmon and creme cheese @ R49. It was ok … I would have prefered it non-toasted though. But was hearty for sure.

Double Breakfast

There were 5 of us in total at the table with 1 person having a plain bran muffin and a thick fruit smoothie and the other lady at the table enjoying a fantastic-ly fresh bowl of muesli, yoghurt, honey and strawberries, kiwi and bananas @ R34. The 2 guys tucked into a traditional fry up – one being the “Double Breakfast” @ R44 – literally double of everything mentioned in the “Mike’s Breakfast”! The special of the day was a fry up option with a side of either a castle beer / coffee / cappuccino @ R32!

The vibe was fantastic and the hum of people coming and going made you feel part of it all. The service was personal and very accommodating and the food and drinks came out really quickly … and were delicious! With all these great ingredients, it was a perfect start to a gorgeous day!
