8 Grove Avenue, Claremont, Cape Town.

Tucked away in the heart of Claremont, you’ll find one of our city’s cutest, cosiest little cafés – The Larder. Passionate about fresh, flavourful fare and top-notch coffee, this fabulous spot is an ideal place for a brunch with the girls or a cake and coffee date. I recently popped in after hearing so many great things about them and was ever so delighted!

I arrived at The Larder with my mom last week on a typical autumn’s day in the Cape – cold and rainy (ugh!). However, from the minute we arrived, we were made to feel right at home by the wonderfully kind staff, and were shown to a warm, comfortable table outside. We were even provided with soft blankets to keep warm – lovely touch, isn’t it?

To start off, I ordered a matcha latte made with organic green tea, while my mom went for a cappuccino. Our drinks reached our table quickly and were fantastic! To eat, we then both opted for The Larder’s most popular brunch dish – the Johnny Depp. Boasting two soft poached eggs on sourdough with crispy bacon and silky hollandaise sauce, you can bet that it was a plate of pure deliciousness!

Our eggs were perfectly poached, the sourdough was as fresh as can be, and the hollandaise sauce was just, well, dreamy (drool!). My mom and I enjoyed every last mouthful of our delectable brunch dishes. To end off our divine meal on a sweet note, we then ordered up a slice of freshly baked carrot cake to share, which was simply sublime!

All in all, I had a wonderful time at The Larder. It’s a gorgeous little place that you’ve simply got to visit if you’re a coffee enthusiast or are a brunch fan (who isn’t?). And, when you do pop in, be sure to check out all of the fabulous fare they have on sale inside – you can pick up everything from jams and chutneys to meringues and cakes to take home and enjoy! If you’ve already been, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
