superette

i finally got round to going to superette and it is as good as i’ve heard. went there on a saturday morning after a night of one too many margaritas, so was dying for a coffee and some runny eggs. i really hate crowded restaurants and was kind of dreading that it would be packed full of the same crowd that goes to the biscuit mill market, but luckily the atmosphere was super mellow and the staff were friendly & attentive.

i opted for the poached eggs and didn’t actually read the small print – so i was surprised by the mound of crispy bacon, four huge asparagus stalks, a baby marrow (with flower, yum), side salad and a generous chunk of bread… not to mention the perfectly cooked poached eggs. A+ guys.

i love coffee

i really liking this new local blog i love coffee

ilovecoffee.co.za is about coffee culture. the beans, the people, the places, the experience. think of it as an expedition to find the best coffee experiences SA has to offer while meeting and introducing you to the people that make it all possible.

perhaps they can help me find the perfect flat white in cape town; at least i have already found it in stellenbosch.

italians

i have posted about giancarlo rado before, but he is always worth a revisit. his collection of italian portraits seem to just get better and better with each viewing… i’d love to own one of these as a print.
