JULY 2014 – We are ecstatic that the famous La Belle Bistro & Bakery, most notably recognised at The Alphen Boutique Hotel in Constantia, has come to Camps Bay.
After more than two years of great success at the picturesque boutique hotel, they have decided to share the concept of casual dining with the Camps Bay strip. In the crowded Cape Town restaurant market, La Belle Bistro & Bakery is a refreshing thought.
We at Opulent Living were invited to taste and savour an array of their delectable breakfast dishes at their official launch. The sumptuous dishes included something sweet and something savoury to delight the palettes of each invited guest. Naturally, we had a nibble of each dish, which included blueberry flapjacks with pure maple syrup, crunchy muesli dressed with fresh fruit and sweet honey, and to top it all off, their most famous Eggs Benedict. This is the first of its kind bistro-bakery to open its doors in Camps Bay to bring beautiful salads, fresh quiches, warm-from-the-oven baked goods and freshly-pressed organic juices to the locals.
Inspired by the popularity of such establishments in European cities and New York, Simone Kovensky, wife of owner Paul Kovensky, did the décor, food sourcing and menus. Drawing on their global experience on patisseries, bistros and casual dining, Paul and Simone have created a spot where everyone feels welcome.
It is most definitely a great spot to escape the city for delicious food, magnificent views of the breaking waves of the Atlantic Ocean, and an enchanting ambience, be it for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
