Best bacon sandwiches in Durban

Bacon, no matter how it is served, is a winner: as a stand-alone accompaniment it becomes the highlight of the meal, and as a topping, it’s a team player that lifts all the other flavours. A case in point for the latter is, of course, the bacon sandwich. So it comes as no surprise then bacon sandwiches are standard additions to restaurant menus around South Africa, each with their own take on how to incorporate bacon between two pieces of bread. For our list, we travelled to Kwa-Zulu Natal to track down the Best Bacon Sandwiches in Durban.

Meanwhile, over in Glenwood, there is Parc – an eatery that is a go-to brunch spot for many Durbanites and only uses locally sourced produce where possible. This cafe’s take on the bacon sandwich involves cheddar cheese, pickled onion, rocket, brown butter, fried banana, an of course, bacon! Sounds delicious, right?

Top spots for lazy brunches in Durban

Parc. Glenwood
EatOut

This easy-going favourite is known for serving brilliant brunches to locals spilling out onto the sidewalk. The Not-so-Benedict is always a winner, with a sprinkling of salty capers on top. Other exciting options might include Croque Monsieur with charcuterie, cheese and brinjal pickle; soft polenta with smoked tomato concasse and a poached egg; or the sweet and satisfying toasted brioche with rosewater-poached stone fruit, home-made cheese curd and pistachios. Be sure to grab a spot early to enjoy the live acoustic music on the pavement.

Coffee-coza

We, the denizens of Durban, like nothing better than taking it easy, so I was attracted to Parc, the new cafe in Glenwood that everyone is talking about. It’s seriously popular so I had to wait a while for a table. The crowd was as laid back as the venue, and I spent time nodding and smiling and reading the wall – a giant blackboard that sports the menu.

I eventually parked off with a great cappuccino, aromatic with a dense crema, a classic espresso blend from Colombo Coffee. That Colombo is just a couple of street away is no coincidence, because at parc., local is lekker – breads and croissants from the Glenwood artisan bakery next door, cakes from the famous Lucy Markewicz, meat from the butcher around the corner.

It takes a stronger will than mine to resist ordering a little something to join a second cappy. I’ve always preferred breakfasts in the afternoon, something Parc seems to understand, so I could indulge in a Not-so-Benedict – bacon, poached eggs, lemon hollandaise and capers on potato and rosemary bread. The Wi-Fi is strong but choose a weekday if you feel like a surf – Saturday’s the day to beat the crowds to the best brunch in Durban.
