Starlings Restaurant, Belvedere Road, Claremont

Breakfast and delicious coffee at Starlings in the Southern Suburbs

Saturday morning and a definitely booked table for 3 at Starlings in Belvedere Road. Heard some really great things about the place and finally made it through to try it out.

We were grateful that we did book as the place was bustling. Space was limited due to the bad weather and the beautiful outside area unable to be used for guests.

The restaurant is fantastically decorated in a restored Victorian cottage and the glass windows leading to the garden allows the outside to come in and the inside to go out. Looks like a great venue to visit with children in the summertime or on a good weather day.

An order for their fabulous cappuccinos was put in – Origin Coffee! They even stock soya milk, so one could opt for a non-dairy cappuccino, which I tried out and it was great.

The Saturday menu selection is small (to cope with the number of patrons) and offers standard breakfast fair.

Starlings Breakfast Menu:

  • Honey toasted muesli with yoghurt and seasonal fruits @ R45
  • Birchers Muesli @ R45
  • Scrambled eggs on toast @ R25
  • Morning scramble with bacon, tomato, mushrooms and toast @ R50
  • Scrambled eggs and salmon trout @ R65
  • Brioche French Toast served either with bacon or berries @ R40. Half portion @ R34
  • Avo, tomato toast @ R34 (add pesto R8)
  • Croissants @ R12 with a variety of choice fillings from jam / honey / marmalade @ R5 through to bacon & brie @ R40, salmon trout @ R33, scrambled eggs & bacon @ R33

What we chose for breakfast:
Their seemed to be an extra on the menu of oats served with honey, pumpkin seeds and bananas which my friend enjoyed thoroughly. It looked delicious and warming on such a cold, autumn day.

The scrambled egg and bacon on croissant looked like a wonderful breakfast plate with perfectly cooked scrambled eggs. However, I was a bit disappointed in the Brioche French Toast and would not necessarily order it again.

All in all a wonderful morning at Starlings Coffee Shopvwith fantastic service, great coffee and conversation with friends. Can’t wait for a gorgeous, sunny day to visit and sit in the garden and enjoy all over again.
