Break­fast at a place with a view

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - GOODTO DO - WENDYL MARTIN

Café: Mae­stro’s on the Beach Bridge Road, Wood­bridge Is­land, Mil­ner­ton Con­tact: 021 551 4992 Twit­ter: @Mae­strosCPT Hours: Week­days from 10am to midnight, week­ends from 9am to midnight Dish eaten: Omelette with Bolog­naise, cheese and onions Price: R60 I DON’T know how they do it. I was in­tro­duced to Mae­stro’s by a ra­dio DJ a few weeks ago and I found the place low on price, but big on scenic views.

A break­fast for two with bev­er­ages came in at R120. And the break­fast menu is an all-day one, to boot.

This week, my col­league and I soaked in the tourist-per­fect views of Ta­ble Moun­tain from this beach restau­rant.

Just about ev­ery break­fast item on the menu comes with chips and some in­clude com­pli­men­tary juice and tea or cof­fee.

Af­ter scan­ning the menu, I se­lected the Bolog­naise omelette. It was made with two eggs and had a fill­ing that in­cluded cheese and onions. It was plated with chips and the meal came with toast (which I was too full to eat) and cof­fee.

The omelette was neat and not over­flow­ing. The cheese melted well into the fill­ing, and gave a gooey el­e­ment to the omelette with each slice I took. The chips were fried un­til golden and were a good nib­ble.

My fil­ter cof­fee was just right. The veg­e­tar­ian col­league had the English break­fast, which is usu­ally two eggs, two slices of toast, two rash­ers of ba­con, toma­toes, chips, a small glass of juice and tea or cof­fee. They were happy to swop the ba­con for mush­rooms for her.

She com­mended them for the por­tion size.

There’s also a sand­wich and crois­sant list if you aren’t feel­ing up to an egg break­fast.

Mae­stro’s has a chilled vibe. Ea­sylis­ten­ing coun­try mu­sic and R&B plays, while you watch surfers wade in and out of the waves.

The restau­rant makes good use of nat­u­ral light, which shines through glass doors.

The waitress staff were friendly and help­ful, check­ing reg­u­larly on us. Mae­stro’s of­fers a “ho­tel-style” buffet on week­end morn­ings from 9am to 11am.
