Best Breakfast Spots in Bloubergstrand and Beyond
If you’re looking for a seaside breakfast, look no further than the West Coast — it’s gorgeous and only a twenty-minute drive from the centre of Cape Town. Greet the day by inhaling the salt air, digging your toes into soft sand and taking in stunning views. We’ve round up some of the best spots to have breakfast in Bloubergstrand and along the West Coast.
Breakfast in Blouberg
Ons Huisie Restaurant
Ons Huisie, ‘Our Little Home’ in Afrikaans, is a picturesque spot set on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, with Robben Island and Table Mountain in view. What we love is that the entire restaurant is kid-friendly (the entire restaurant).
Scenery and playground aside, the breakfast will leave you singing! Try the Tomato Delight — a tomato that is loaded with onion, feta and salmon and served with scrambled eggs. Once completely stuffed, you can enjoy a stroll along the coast.
Location: 18 General Jansen Rd, Bloubergstrand
Hours: Mon-Sun: 09h00-22h00

On The Rocks
If you were any closer to the coast, you would be dining in the water. This beautiful breakfast spot in Bloubergstrand has been operating for over 50 years. Their breakfasts are simple, but done to perfection and are well-priced. On the Rocks has a scrumptious range of Single Toasts to choose from. Their Jonkershuis toast comes with crispy pork belly, avo, poached egg, field mushroom and pesto. Sound delicious, doesn’t it?

Breakfast in Tableview
Salt & Sage
Breakfast with a view? Say no more! Salt & Sage is a stunning spot that overlooks Table Mountain and the ocean. They have many great breakfast options, but if you want some sage advice — order their Eggs Benedict. You won’t be sorry! If you’re looking to start your day with a spicy kick, their Chorizo beans is pretty drool-worthy too.
Location: Shop 01, Marine Promenade Centre, Marine Circle, Table View
Hours: Mon : 08h00-17h00 | Tues-Sat: 08h00-21h00 | Sun: 09h00-17h00 | Breakfast till 13h00

Breakfast in Melkbosstrand
The Hart Bistro & Eatery
What’s not to love about this place? Neatly positioned along the strip of restaurants on Beach Road, The Hart is always abuzz. This eatery has an accommodating menu, with satisfying breakfast items. Their Bomb Brekkie Bun is a flavour explosion of chipotle jam, cream cheese, scrambled eggs, bacon and onion rings. For a more health-conscious meal, try their Italiano — it’s divine and comes with two poached eggs, sundried tomatoes, basil pesto, all on a bed of mushrooms.
Location: Shop 01, MiraMar Centre, Beach Rd, Melkbosstrand
Hours: Mon-Sun: 08h00-15h00

On the shores of Melkbosstrand, lies this little gem — Damhuis Restaurant. It’s the ideal spot for a family breakfast, with delicious and healthy options to choose from. We’d recommend their Poached Eggs Hollandaise, you can’t go wrong with it. Their Banting Benedict with garlic mushrooms, topped with streaky bacon and balsamic glazed cherry tomatoes is also a breakfast of note.
Location: 32 Beach Rd, Melkbosstrand

Ou Meul Bakery & Café
With a number of branches, you’re probably no stranger to Ou Meul Bakery. This bakery and café has a delicious range of breakfast options, from bircher and smoothie bowls, to eggs Benedict and croque madame. The café has a fabulous grassed outdoor area with a great jungle gym, so parents can knock back that all-important first java, while kids entertain themselves. Be sure to order the Franschhoek Salmon Trout — it’s quite the catch!
Location: 60 Birkenhead Drive, Melkbosstrand
Hours: Mon-Sat: 07h00-18h00 | Sun: 08h00-17h00

Milkwood Deli is located on the Atlantic Beach Golf Estate but is open to outside visitors. While you won’t have a sea view like many other places on the list, you may spot some of the wildlife that roam the estate or even catch the perfect putt.
The menu is varied and runs the gamut from healthy breakfast bowls, to more indulgent BNB French Toast (Bacon, Nutella and Banana) or Churros Toast tossed in cinnamon sugar and rooibos salted caramel. We love that they also offer a low carb protein plate and even a waffle with sugar-free lemon curd. They haven’t forgotten about the little ones with a great selection of brekkies to power up a kid’s day. Truly a great place to grab breakfast in Melkbosstrand!
Location: 1 Fairway Drive, Atlantic Beach Golf Estate, Melkbosstrand
Hours: Tues-Sun: 08h00-16h00 | Breakfast: 08h00-12h00

Breakfast in Sunningdale
Bread & Butter
Bread & Butter Café has been a staple on the West Coast for a number of years now. It is well-known for serving a stellar line up of beautiful cakes and sweet treats, all of which are housed on a central table, complete with tiered cake stands and beautiful glass cloches. If you have a sweet tooth it can be torture to choose!
In terms of breakfasts, they cater for all – from wraps and croissants to a colossal brekkie burger stack and even a bacon & avo banting breakfast with low carb bread. If you feel like a morning treat, we highly recommend their breakfast banana split, complete with berry coulis and roasted nut granola.
Location: Shop G12A, Sandown Retail Crossing, CNR Wood & Sandown Rd, Sunningdale
Hours: Mon-Fri: 07h30-17h00 | Sat & Sun: 07h30-16h00
