La Belle Bistro & Bakery have opened up their third set of doors situated ideally between the V&A Waterfront and the historic Mouille Point Lighthouse! I’ve only heard the best things about their menu so I decided to book a lunch date with one of my girls (who by the way) is equally fond of cheesecake as I am!
You’ve probably seen La Belle Bistro & Bakery in Constantia and Camps Bay and they’ve since opened up a much needed La Belle in gorgeous Mouille Point! It’s the perfect spot for afternoon cocktails and lunch or even a quick business lunch. I’ve heard that they do a really nice breakfast too so I’m definitely doing that the next time I go! Besides super duper friendly staff the food is incredible – just please don’t go when you’re on a diet!
When I arrived I headed straight for the cake fridge so that I could begin the 1 hour process of deciding which dessert I was going to have! We then started off with cocktails and ordered lunch. I had the “Sirloin Forrester” which is a steak with braised bacon and mushroom sauce (so yummy) with a side of mash and roasted cherry tomatoes. Sashca had the smoked salmon salad which made eating healthy look so hot!
Dessert as I expected was nothing short of amazing! Since we’re both cheesecake lovers we decided on 2 different variations which was the classic baked cheesecake and then the gluten free berry cheesecake. The flavors in the berry one were crazy – sweet berries, deep dark chocolate base and milk and white marbled cheesecake filling – my goodness!
This is by far one of the best lunch spots I’ve visited in a long time and the price tags are very reasonable too! If you’re keen for an awesome Cape Town lunch this weekend then make sure you pop in at La Belle and you can find them here:
