The first of my restaurant reviews all for a great cause!!!
When I initially began my blog, Craft in Parkhurst was at the top of my list of restaurants to visit, before heading to the Mother City!
I finally tried it out & it was worth the wait 🙂 Very dear friends were out here for two weeks from the Gold Coast (Australia) & on the eve of their departure, we met for a breakfast at Craft.
Parkhurst is an incredibly trendy, alive & colourful suburb in Johannesburg – the perfect spot for a restaurant such a Craft.
No bookings are allowed so when I got there I was impressed at how quickly we were accommodated by the manager.
Our table of 7 consisted of 6 adults & 5 year young Zoe. Zoe despite her age, is quite a discerning eater – much like her parents – ordered quickly & was very satisfied with her kids breakfast. There were times when I had to stop myself from taking a sip of that delicious marshmallow milkshake she ordered! Milkshakes have no age limit 🙂
Before ordering we tried out the light medium roast coffees & they are certainly recommended if you enjoy coffee.
The comprehensive menu left us all spoilt for choice. There were various orders of omelettes, the Craft Breakfast, Breakfast Lasagne & healthy alternatives which my mates certainly enjoyed. I tried the Salmon Rosti & thoroughly enjoyed it! The portion was sufficient & it tasted as good as it looked!
My friend Katia tried the coconut flapjacks & raved on about how good they were.
I sampled my partner Sean’s choice which was the Scotch eggs & yum – definitely my next try!
Banting breakfasts, Eggs Florentine, French toast, Shakshouka, to name but a few, are all on this colourful menu list!
Without the sour, one can’t appreciate the sweet which brings me to negatives…parking in Parkhurst requires a great degree of patience!
The prices are a bit on the steep side.
Unfortunately due to the popularity of this hot spot, service was very slow & we waiting close to an hour for our breakfasts.
And lastly…I didn’t try the CandyFloss Milkshake or a slice of Oreo Cheesecake 😦
Until my next post, I agree with Robert Heinlein when he says, “one should not even attend the end of the world, without a good breakfast”!
