Breakfast on Bree Street

We take breakfast-making very seriously here, using farm eggs from happy, field-roaming hens.  We love scrambled eggs, perfectly cooked so they are creamy and soft.  If you want something more than that, try one of our omelettes.   We are the "soft, eggs running-off-the-plate breakfast people" so if you like yours cooked a bit more, please just ask!  Some of our customers have this to say: Best scrambled eggs If you like scrambled eggs done properly (or poached) look no further.

Sunday braai – lamb rib eye; spinach and squash salad; herb and lemon salsa

This is an easy salad for a braai - we served it with lamb rib eye and a fresh herb, lemon zest and celery salsa and a bottle of red.  Loved it. We used a kuri squash, but I don't see why this wouldn't work with any squash. 900g squash 30g brown sugar salt oil oil, to coat the squash 200g spinach leaves, chiffonade if not baby leaves handful of fresh herbs (I used basil and chives) 225g button mushrooms, wiped clean and quartered 20g barberries 90ml extra virgin olive oil 20ml verjuice Grated lime zest Salt and pepper -preheat oven to 180 deg centigrade -toss the pumpkin in the salt, sugar and olive oil, transfer to a baking tray and roast for approx. 20 minutes, turning [...]
