Sunday Jazz brunch at the Winchester Mansions

The Sunday Jazz Brunch has become an institution at the Winchester. Every Sunday, throughout the year, you arrive at 11 and stay till 2 and, in the process, listen to jazz, eat breakfast, morning tea and sushi, and then finish with a full Sunday lunch and dessert. And all for a very reasonable charge of R270 per person. They provide a glass of Miss Molly Bubbly to start the morning and the Sunday Papers. The wine list is comprehensive and you can make choices from there 
Sunday turned out to be quite a pretty day. Not very sunny but not chilly either.  Tables around the fountain. Daughter Clare settling in.
It is a lovely old style hotel, right on the sea front in Sea Point. It was a block of flats back in the 50’s and 60’s
Aaah, the salad bar. Best were the smoked salmon and the prawn dish. Apparently, the mussels were also divine
Very good sushi, which they keep renewing.  It's a popular choice
Or you can start with breakfast cereals
and add some fresh fruit and yoghurt
The cheese board
The other side of the salad bar
May we tempt you with some pastries or rolls?
More salads
Fancy a Tricolore salad dressed with pesto?
How Lynne started brunch: a little sushi, salmon, prawns and some calamari. You can then go on to a full Sunday lunch and they had beef, pork, lamb chops, fish, lots of vegetables and roast potatoes. Oh, and very good curry and rice. And then, of course, there is the dessert bar
