IN THE heart of the CBD at the Man­dela Rhodes Ho­tel apart­ment block on the cor­ner of Church Street and St Ge­orge’s Mall, Doppio Zero of­fers a wide range of home-style meals. The con­tem­po­rary cafe chain also serves gourmet piz­zas, Mediter­ranean dishes and ar­ti­san breads.

It’s up to you whether you want to enjoy the fare in­side the restau­rant while lis­ten­ing to con­tem­po­rary mu­sic or out­side while en­joy­ing the view of the stores and peo­ple on the mall. The staff know how to en­gage with cus­tomers to help them feel at home, which was a great plus for me be­cause I hate eat­ing alone.

Seated at a cosy cor­ner ta­ble with a view of just about the whole restau­rant, pizza oven right in front of me and the buf­fet set up next to me, I for­got that I had come alone.

The peo­ple buzzing in, dash­ing for the buf­fet which seemed to be the pop­u­lar break­fast choice, also kept my in­ter­ests piqued.

Though they of­fer a set Doppio Clas­sic break­fast menu, they also of­fer an all-you- can eat buf­fet for R140, which is served from 6am to 10.30am. I, too, opted for the buf­fet.

I grabbed a fruit salad which was mainly ap­ples, kiwi and mel­ons, just to ease into the mas­sive range of foods avail­able on the ta­ble.

The break­fast of­fers a range of fruits, ce­re­als and some warm break­fast op­tions. On the menu they have grilled toma­toes, mush­rooms, beef and pork sausages, ba­con, baked beans, mini cheesy omelettes and tramezzini. Though the beef sausage was a bit hard, it was tasty and the rest of the food was pre­pared to per­fec­tion.The fresh juice which went with my high carb break­fast was a sooth­ing way to com­plete the morn­ing.
