Description

Ideally positioned on Main Road, Essence Restaurant and Coffee Bar welcomes languid coffee breaks, quick lunches and lazy days reading the paper.

Popular with locals and tourists, this little haven boasts gorgeous mountain views and alfresco dining on a shady deck overlooking a trickling stream.

The interior is cosy and balanced, with elegant décor statements and the aroma of delicious LILLY coffee.

Pop in for a coffee or start the morning with a hearty breakfast such as the Farmhouse or the more elegant scrambled eggs served with Franshhchoek smoked trout, capers and onion.

Sweet palates can indulge in waffles with bacon, brie and fig drenched in maple syrup!

Lunch options vary from rump strips, onions, tomato, rocket and mustard, or Asian inspired salads such as roast duck with bean thread and peanut sauce.

The menu features some traditional favourites such as Bobotie with yellow rice and Lamb curry with sambals.

Coffee breaks compliment the heavenly cheesecake or light-hearted lemon meringue, and teatime remains a treat with old-fashioned scones and strawberry jam.
