breakfast at KOS

After moving at the end of last year, I wanted to find a cute little local breakfast spot, and it was pretty much after our second week of living in our new apartment that we found KOS (which is the Afrikaans word for Food – for those who didn't know).
This quirky little establishment only celebrated it's first birthday a couple weeks ago, and we like to think we've helped keep it in business with our regular support.

The service is very attentive, I walked in the other day with a friend of mine and she was impressed at how the waitress asked if I'd be having my regular soy latte and french toast.

Their coffee is good, R20 for a double latte, and they do take aways.

The menu is simple, but the food is good and wholesome. I always have the Rye french toast with banana and syrup (R25). My fiance normally has the eggs Benedict with bacon (R50). They also have daily specials for lunch which range from butternut and feta wraps (R30) to burgers with all the works (R50). Other dishes include full English-style breakfasts, flapjacks with berries and mascarpone, cakes of the day, a cereal and fruit selection, soup of the day and sandwiches.

There is also free Wi-Fi, so there are quite a few patrons who bring their laptop along with them.

Little touches I love:

- There are books placed on the tables: travel books and recipe books
- Since it's started getting colder, there are blankets available for those feeling chilly
- The opera music playing from the kitchen
- The cutlery and crockery all have that vintage (like they come from your granny's cupboard) look, and are beautifully mixed up.

These photos are from this weekend, the balloons are not a normal adornment – but there were a couple Mother's Day's booking, so hence the 'party' vibe...
