5 Johannesburg Restaurants to do Brunch
By Nomali Cele
Recent downpours in Gauteng and the rest of the country aside, the season of staying out late and waking up just in time for the best meal of the day, brunch, is upon us! If you are feeling a little rusty on the art of brunching, this is just the post for you
The Whippet in Linden
The Whippet is beloved for the attentive and helpful service. The restaurant prides itself on its bistro-style menu While brunch is the perfect occasion for a mimosa, or three, The Whippet is also known for coffee so do try a cup.
We’d recommend doing a weekday brunch at The Whippet because it’s a quite popular weekend eatery.
PAUL in Melrose Arch
Craving baked goods? PAUL in Melrose Arch is the place to go. Whether sweet or savoury, their pastries are excellent. PAUL is a French restaurant and the French sure know their baking. When you are in the mood for bread at brunch, then PAUL is probably the best place to get it in Johannesburg. Their fruit juice selection also worth the trip.
Café del Sol TRE in Parkhust
Part of the Café del Sol family restaurant business, Café del Sol TRE is about food and family all the way. Their kitchen only opens after 12 PM, so a brunch date there might require you at least get cereal earlier in the morning. The menu at Café del Sol TRE is hearty and tastess like an Italian grandma’s love.
Pablo Eggs-Go-Bar in Melville
Feeling egg-y? Pablo Eggs-Go-Bar will make your eggs as simple or as fancy as you want them. If you enjoy eggs or creating something interesting with a simple ingredient, this is the brunch spot for you. A popular menu item is their shakshuka.
KCC La Vie En Rose in Houghton Estate
The first thing anyone will tell you about KCC La Vie En Rose is about their garden. Now imagine yourself eating the best food you’ve ever eaten at brunch, in a beautiful garden. Their brunch menu covers everything from a fruit salad to smoked salmon and french toast.
