These days we don’t just want food that tastes good, we want it to look good and served in Instagram-worthy surroundings too. These are our top picks for pretty restaurants where you can enjoy breakfast in style.

For lazy days when you don’t want to rush (or when you wake up hungover and craving a greasy fry-up but it’s lunchtime already), a place that serves an all-day breakfast is a life-saver. Parc Café gets it right with everything, from the simple (like its perfectly prepared toast and eggs) to the snazzy (try its soft polenta with parmesan and pancetta). It also offers great alternative options like a yummy vegan burger and soya milk, so you can still enjoy your morning cappuccino without the dairy.

Breakfasts to leave home for

The Mercury, Food and Wine

A snap survey on Facebook to find out where to get ‘the best breakfast in town’ dished up a number of restaurants and cafes, from the north and south coasts to inland. Debbie Reynolds picked out the top six as ‘voted’ by her Facebook friends – which doesn’t mean there aren’t others which deserve mention as there were at least 20 nominations.”

“There’s good reason parc. notched up several accolades last year – Top 10 Café Society Coffee Award, EatOut Top 500 restaurants in SA (Durban café) and Best Breakfast in Durban by Wanted Magazine.

This Glenwood gem is everything a good café should be, from its daily specials using locally sourced artisanal produce to its friendly professional service. Tables spill on to the pavement and on balmy Durban days, soaking up the sun is bliss. Plus, on most mornings, you get the added bonus of the aroma of freshly-baked bread coming from Glenwood Bakery next door, which, of course, is where parc.’s home-made breads are sourced.

The parc. menu is seasonal, but breakfast favourites are standard. Worthy of particular mention are the Not-so-Benedict (bacon, poached eggs, lemon hollandaise and capers on potato and rosemary bread). Toasted scone, mushroom, bacon and poached eggs with roast red peppers and wholegrain mustard cream and, my personal favourite, corn and zucchini cakes, poached eggs, coriander, haloumi, olives, tomato and vanilla relish. The coffee is definitely worth lingering over.

Here we have a down-to-earth cafe experience with a deceptively simple menu.  Expect locally sourced artisanal produce, with breads from neighbouring Glenwood Bakery and distinctive coffee from the nearby Colombo Tea and Coffee Co.  Breakfast, blissfully, is served all day.  The Not-so-Benedict sees potato and rosemary bread topped with bacon, poached eggs, lemon hollandaise and capers, or order the green asparagus, poached eggs, rocket, parmesan, brown butter vinaigrette, truffle oil and flaked almonds served on toast.  Lunch options run the gauntlet from soup to tart of the day to salads and uber sandwiches – think pulled pork, tomato, tzatziki, home-made pickles, radish, peaches and lettuce.
