CAFÉ WITH A TWIST
Café Benedict is appealing to a local crowd with affordable prices in the new Centre du Franschhoek, centrally situated in this namesake winelands town. Chef and owner Llewellyn Lambert harks from Quarters hotel in Durban’s Florida Road, and he’s enjoying the change of scenery. The light-toned café space features exposed beams and white panelling. Yes, eggs Benedict is on the menu, along with other breakfast classics. Creative lunch options soothe vegetarians, with duck pancakes and gourmet sandwiches on fresh loaves as some of the alternatives. Freshly blended organic juices aside, a wine list by the glass and bottle focuses on Franschhoek labels.
