Breakfast at Mondiall

Continuing our search for the perfect breakfast in Cape Town we bought vouchers from Hyperli which took us to Mondiall in the V&A Waterfront. We think it was good value at R208 for two. Known for its wonderful position on the quayside at the end of the V&A Hotel, we have enjoyed dinner there, we liked the hamburgers from the Burger bar which we took home after a non-catered Waterfront event, but this was the first time we'd had breakfast there
There is a nice terrace with Waterfront views
It is a large spacious restaurant
We arrived as they opened at 10 and, as it was still a bit chilly, we were grateful to be seated indoors, with a good view

First came a Nespresso Americano with a nice crema, but rather a bitter pod and rather small cups for breakfast!
Sadly the Hyperli deal is now no longer available, at it was very good value indeed. What was the Deal?
•        R109 Choice of Breakfast with a choice of Beverage for 2 (Value R210)
•        R209 Choice of Breakfast with a choice of Beverage for 4 (Value R420)
More About the voucher Menu

•        English Muffin Selection: Bacon - Hollandaise Smoked Salmon - Hollandaise Spinach - Hollandaise
•        The English: Eggs of your choice - sausage - bacon - tomato - mushrooms - baked beans - hash brown
and a Nespresso Beverage Selection: Espresso, Americano, Cappuccino
This is the current Winter breakfast menu. You can go and have the same choices but at the current prices, with a little more variation

The bar area
Lynne chose the Eggs Royale: Muffins topped with good smoked salmon, two poached eggs and a very good Hollandaise sauce. It had to be fresh and it was. Nice and thick and coating. The eggs were as ordered - runny yolks, cooked whites. It looks small, it was not and was so filling Lynne nearly had to leave some but, in the end, greed got the better of her
John ordered the other choice, The English, without the mushrooms and with scrambled egg. A good choice
Lovely views of the morning mist rising over the city
And of our lovely mountain
Our bill. The extra charge was for two more coffees, we found we needed more than one small cup each. And, of course, service which was friendly and prompt. They then deducted the voucher amount of R109 which we had paid direct to Hyperli
