Breakfast along the Atlantic Seaboard: La Vie, Sea Point

What a gorgeous Cape Town day it was. Sun shining, no wind! Perfect for breakfast and then a walk along the promenade in Sea Point.

Perfect spot: La Vie, Sea Point

We sat outside and basked in the morning sun and admiring the view, while sipping on café latte in anticipation of a fab breakfast.

Initially, there was some confusion as to who ‘owned’ our table, but once our orders were in, we were secure in the knowledge that our hunger would be abated.

Standard health breakfast is up for grabs at R36 (muesli, yoghurt, fruit) as well as a Traditional Fry Up at R47. Add refried beans to your traditional fry up and you have the Mexican Breakfast @ R55.

Eggs benedict

I was intrigued by the La Vie Breakfast of half a small ciabatta loaf layered with lettuce, bacon, 2 sunny side up eggs and all topped with a delicious onion and tomato mix @ R34. I was torn between that and the Mushroom Breakfast: a large brown mushroom topped with an egg, grilled tomato and caramalized onion and then sprinkled with parmesan @ R36 (add bacon or smoked salmon for an extra R10). But decided on the ciabatta and it was delicious!

My friend took the eggs benedict @ R55 and they looked amazing! 2 lovely fresh english muffins topped with a creamy spinach mixture, bacon (or salmon), soft-boiled egg, and covered in just the right amount of hollandaise sauce. Needless to say she gobbled it all up! It seemed a popular choice with all the other breakfast go-ers.

Omelettes with various mixtures of fillings from R28 through to R45 as well as croissants / bagels also with a choice of inners from R21 to R52.

I really enjoyed the chilled vibe at La Vie, the coming and going of people and the great view out across the road, past the pavilion to the sea beyond. Inspired a 1 hour walk before heading off.
