Breakfast in Cape Town, South Africa

While on safari, your options for meals are to eat the the lodge dinning room, often an excellect buffet, or bring in your own food.  In Cape Town, we have a kitchen, though the grocery stores are often open at the same hours that we are touring, so getting stocked up depended on finding a store that was open when we were returning to the apartment.  The alternative was to find a breakfast place nearby.

The first morning on which we did not have provisions, we headed out to find a cafe listed in one of the travel books.  As we walked along Church Street, we all turned our heads at a deli, but this was not our destination.  As it turned out, the listed establishment was not open for another hour.  We had no trouble turning back to investigate Trisha Delisha.  In fact, we did not even need to make a decision about returning the next morning.

The ample pots of tea warmed us up.  They serve a variety of breads with different combinations of eggs and breakfast meats.  To last well beyond lunch, we added fruit and yogurt.  Now just take the time to enjoy the meal.

The proprietors, Salome and Thomas opened the shop about a year ago, after immigrating from Namibia.  Thomas grew up in Germany.  He needs to only remember the winters there to know what attracted him to this coastal city.

Up here in the mountains, we have a saying, "You can't get there from here", which really means "We wouldn't go the trouble to do that". Another concept is that "If you don't know, we ain't telling." For the rest, you'll have to read between the lines.
