Cafeen, Kenilworth

Breakfast with a mountain view in the Southern Suburbs: Cafeen in Harfield Village

I think Cafeen could become another one of my favourite places. It is rustic, old world with a slight spin on farm house kitsch. And with outside and inside opportunities and fresh, wholesome food … it is a definite winner.

We arrived on a Sunday morning around 9:30am and it was fairly quiet. We did book though as we were a party of 6 people. By 10:30am, the place was packed with after church visitors and late risers.

Cafeen sits perfectly on the corner of 3rd Avenue in Harfield Village / Kenilworth just down the road from Oblivion Wine Bar, and opposite a lovely park with a view up to Devil’s Peak. There is no set parking area, but parking is available in the surrounding streets.

Their menu is extensive and covers all the bases, so there is definitely something for everyone. I am still looking for the unusual, so I went for something a little more risqué – Summer Stack (R52) which was a gorgeously large slice of health toast covered in Brie cheese, and then topped with roasted herbed mushrooms and cherry tomatoes and covered in lovely rocket and watercress before being topped once again with crispy bacon and drizzled reduced balsamic vinegar. It was completely delicious!

The French Toast with caramelized bananas looked fabulous as well (R38), especially served with a side of maple syrup and lemon curd on the side.

I saw an Avo Sandwich (R35) float passed me, which looked lovely and healthy (seasonal based on availability of avos). Waffles are also up for grabs (R25) along with pancakes (23) and the choice of croissants: Bacon and Brie (R40) or Smoked Salmon (R49).

If you feeling like a simple breakfast, you can select the toast and spreads option (homemade jams, anchovy, marmite, bovril, honey or peanut butter). The usual muesli option with yoghurt and fruit is up for grabs (R35) and then different varieties of your cooked breaky.

All in all – fantastic and I have made plans to visit there again! Apparently the menu does change based on season … so will be keeping my eye on what’s new at Cafeen.
