If the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, then there is not better Father’s Day gift that treating Dad to a leisurely 5-star breakfast at The Cellars-Hohenort on Sunday 19 June.
Served in the elegant Conservatory Restaurant or the terrace overlooking the gardens, the celebrations start with a glass of bubbly, tea or coffee, and a choice of fruit juice, including an immune booster of carrot or beetroot with ginger. The scrumptious buffet spread includes cereals and home-made muesli, seasonal fruit, and a selection of hams, cured meats, and smoked salmon with cream cheese and capers. Complimenting the basket of freshly baked pastries is a cheese platter and preserves, before the hot breakfast is served as main event.
Executive Chef Tronette Dippenaar and her team will be ready to prepare a range of hot breakfast options, from the full English breakfast of fried eggs, bacon, sautéed mushrooms, pork sausage, grilled tomatoes and baked beans; to the ultimate Eggs Benedict; folded Omelettes with a choice of fillings, or Smoked salmon with scrambled eggs. Healthy options include Banting Benedict of brown mushroom, bacon, tomato, poached eggs and Hollandaise sauce; or Smashed avo on toasted rye bread. But since it’s Father’s Day after all, Dads with a sweet tooth may spoil themselves with a choice of French Toast with maple flavoured syrup, banana, crispy bacon and crushed pecan nuts; or Crumpets served with maple syrup, bacon or berry compote with honey cream cheese.
Bookings are essential. Breakfast is served between 07:00 and 10:30, at a cost of R295 per person, and R175 for children 11 years old and younger.
