Buffet Breakfast at Azure Restaurant, Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa

The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa has been one of my favourite Cape Town venues for quite a few years. I have been looking for a fabulous excuse on a special occassion to go there once again, but this time for their amazing buffet breakfast.

Breakfast is served at the Azure Restaurant til 10:30am every morning and at R155 per person the selection of delights is truly worth it. The service is always excellent and the quality of the fabulous array of dishes make use of fresh ingredients, with warm breakfast dishes made to order.

We started our buffet feast with a glass of sparkling wine and oysters. Not something I would have ever considered for breakfast, but one which was just a decadent beginning to a scrumptious meal.

With an order of tea in the brewing, we selected a variety of fresh fruits from the fruit buffet and followed it a few minutes later with my favourite part of a breakfast buffet – the cold meats and cheeses with fresh, “home-baked” breads. I waited a while and had to go back for seconds of the smoked salmon-trout and delicious seed loaf with cream cheese!

The Twelve Apostles Hotel warm breakfast menu consists of:

  • 12A Breakfast – traditional selection of eggs of choice, bacon, pork sausage, been sausage, saute mushrooms, grilled tomatoes and sauteed potatoes
  • Azure Waffle – fresh home-made waffle topped with glazed apple and banana, served with warm maple syrup, vanilla creme fraiche and fresh mint
  • Eggs Benedict – poached eggs on toasted English muffin with crispy smoked bacon and topped with hollandaise sauce
  • Breakfast Omelette – filled with your choice from variety of fantastic ingredients
  • Hot Porridge of the Day – served with butter, golden syrup and fresh cream

My Mom and I decided to share the eggs benedict seeing as it came with 2 eggs on 1/2 an English muffin each. It was just perfect as it was quite rich and delicious.

We left almost 2 hours after our arrival feeling delightfully full and happy to take a nice long, scenic drive back to the city bowl.
