Work while you brunch.
Recognisable by a lush, tree-lined entrance in an otherwise concrete jungle, Cartel House on Loop Street is a veritable oasis that tempts the itinerant working set with a quiet place to work – and a sumptuous bite to eat – in a central yet stylish setting.
Known primarily as a communal office, the space is also home to a vibrant eatery, luring passers-by with the heavenly aromas of flapjacks, fried bacon and freshly brewed coffee, while also servicing its itinerant clientele.
Patrons arriving on the first floor are greeted with a “Thrilled to be Me” neon sign and industrio-plush decor that set the scene for momentous coffee catch-ups and satisfying breakfasts, brunches and lunches.
From toast (with avocado, hummus or eggs) and bagels (with smoked salmon and feta; trout and scrambled eggs; or bacon and eggs) to seasonal yoghurt bowls and eggs benedict three ways, you’re bound to find something that tickles your taste buds on the breakfast menu.
The lunch options are as appetising: salads, sandwiches, wraps, burgers, hearty bowls and boerewors rolls. But it’s the brunch menu that steals the show: an array of salubrious plates, cool cocktails (it’s brunch, after all), juices and beverages.
Think moreish flapjacks topped with either eggs benedict; bacon and banana; strawberries and chocolate; or fresh berries and cream; Dutch Babies (crêpe-style pancakes); oats and collagen glow bowls; French toast and Croque Madame two ways… a suitably sumptuous affair!
