Rooftop Terrace Coffee Shop

Rooftop Terrace is open for breakfast and lunch every day except Sunday and they offer a simple, healthy and fresh menu. Chicken wraps, salads and other healthy low carb dishes are perfect for those who are hungry but don’t want to overeat. There are also Vegan meals on the menu like lentil curry and potato salad and they look to die for. There really is something for everyone. For those who are looking for something a little naughtier, there is a wonderful assortment of cakes from chocolate cake to cheesecake as well as other pastries that one can indulge in.

Piccadilly Pancake Bar and Deli

Piccadilly supports the No Straw Initiative – A single straw in your drink will stay on this planet forever. It takes 200 years to break down and then it breaks down into toxic particles. The US and the UK throw away nearly 550 million straws per day! Very little is recycled and most of it ends up in the ocean. A healthy ocean provides resilience to climate change. So, you can do your bit by refusing to use a straw

Summer Eating

Fruit-wise, apples, Cape gooseberries, coconuts (also a good oil to cook with), dates, guavas, grapefruit, naartjies, oranges, paw paws, pineapples, pears, sweet melon, strawberries lemons (get your daily dose by adding a slice to your glass of water. Or your evening G n T!), nectarines, bananas and avocados. Great, we have plenty of avos around us, filled with healthy oil (we should be cooking with avo oil as well) and they are delicious in breakfast smoothies, on pizza and salads and prepared a heap of other ways as well. Lovely to see Lowveld fruit crops such as grapefruit, naartjies, oranges, paw paws, lemons, guavas and bananas are in season now.
