Cafe Royale has come to Cape Town
Green Point’s newest little treasure, Café Royale, has opened its doors. The French Riviera style café emulates a true taste of the architecturally Parisian Cape Royale Luxury Hotel at which it’s ideally based in the bustling trend-epicenter of the Mother City.
Open for breakfast, lunch, coffee and drinks, with Chef Phillip Castle at the helm, the French style café serves seasonal fresh eats and baked goods accompanied by legendary Hausbrandt Coffee (one of the oldest original Italian coffee roasters, dating back more than 120 years). The bistro boasts a cosy indoor setting for those looking to huddle up to a cuppa somethin’ good, or those whom prefer fresh-air alfresco dining may enjoy the delightfully green and lush, yet somewhat private, outdoor patio.
Balancing the deliciously indulgent fresh artisanal bakes, guests can enjoy Jus de fruit frais pressé (a choice of freshly squeezed juices), or take to one of the healthier breakfasts from Option De Santé (the Healthy Option). Of course if you’re feeling a little more daring you could tuck into a signature breakfast dish such as the Croque Monsieur Madame topped with Fried Egg – Delish!
In the decadence of French dining you may decide to stay on for lunch… with dishes like the Saumon fumé rasée (Shaved Smoked Salmon) on savoury waffles served with artichoke cream. One may also find distraction in the (healthier option) Spinach & Quinoa Salad with Cashews; a flavour sensation of Quinoa, Baby Spinach, Scallions, Cashew nuts, Olive Oil Dressing, or the Plat Chaud de la Journée –
Rich oxtail stew with baby root veg and sweet potato mash. Add a bottle of Tattinger Brut Reserve French Champagne and you’re set.
Welcoming both the general public and hotel guests and residents alike. Café Royale positions itself as an ideal drop-in destination for business meetings and corporates, or for visitors from abroad.
Whatever your appetite for French cuisine, Café Royale certainly caters for many a palate.
