Brunch on the sea front at Sotano

So we’re still in Cape Town but we’ve moved to the other side of the mountain to wonderful Sea Point. That means long walks along the promenade breathing in the sea air and patting as many dogs as I can (I’m just a bit of a dog lover).

This weekend we had my beautiful Australian niece Rachel staying with us so on Sunday I simply had to introduce her to the promenade…let’s just say we went for a very long walk!

We did manage a stop off at Sotano in Mouille Point for brunch. It’s on the side of the road looking out towards the sea and does a fantastic breakfast/brunch menu.

We ordered two different dishes which were perfectly divisible in half so we managed to each try them.

I do love Eggs Benedict and have tried it all over the world. And this was one of the best, poached eggs served on a lightly toasted croissant with perfect hollandaise sauce and Black Forest Ham.

Rachel opted for the wild mushrooms sauteed with onion, garlic, parsley and butter, served on toasted rye bread and topped with a poached egg.

A highly recommended spot for brunch (their lunch/dinner menu is also lovely).

And it’s perfectly situated as not only do you have the sea on one side, the stunning Green Point Urban Park is behind it. The perfect place for another walk!

Sotano is at 121 Beach Road, Mouille Point
