Myself and Lorenzo (bae) had the opportunity this Saturday past, to sit down for a quick breakfast, at Coco Levant eatery, which is on Voortrekker road, Fairfield Estate. Having ordered burgers from Hyperli.com from Coco Levant on a previous occasion, I had a good feeling that breakfast would be just as good. 😎Nope, it was even better! We walked in to a relaxed atmosphere, and chose the best seats in the house, right at the front door. As Saturday was a bit hot -38 degrees, we felt that would be the perfect spot.
Pictured above: Lorenzo had the Full house breakfast, which you can see looked so very appetizing and inviting, but is way too much food for me to eat by myself. The breakfast included toast, sausage, tomatoes, mushrooms, chips on the side, Macon and eggs. 🥘Any man would be in heaven when you put this plate down in front of him. Along, with breakfast he opted for the freshest glass of orange juice. Breakfast arrived soon after having ordered it, so that was a huge plus from me.
I ordered a cappuccino because I simply cannot function without my coffee in the morning. And how delightful does this cappuccino look. Come on, just admit it, you want to try this eatery out.
For myself I ordered the Breakfast sandwich which comes with a side of chips, and I should mention the chips is amazing. Nope, it doesn't taste like that machine produced chips, instead its like the real thing, homemade chips at its best. The sandwich had egg and Macon on, and it was topped off with a dash of mixed herbs which made it even more yummier. 🙂There were salt, pepper, as well as tomato sauce on the tables which came in very handy.
Some of the dishes which Coco Levant eatery prepared as seen below
Has a menu with a variety of dishes on, ranging from starters, shawarmas to gatsby`s
Great tasting food
Good coffee available
Great Decor, white open spaces
Close to accommodation
Eatery could do with some nice jazz music, way too quiet
Eatery could do with more signage on Voortrekker Rd, easily missable
Not only does the restaurant cater for Starters, breakfast, sandwiches, burgers, but it also does traditional curry meals, has something for the meat lovers 🍖, like ribs and also makes gatsby`s, shawarmas and wraps.👏
If you do wonder how the eatery looks, here are some pics for you to peruse. If I haven't mentioned it before, Coco Levant eatery has a very easy come easy go atmosphere and feel to it. So no need to feel anxious about trying out this spot for the very first time. Also, its nice to know that this eatery is situated right next to the New National Hotel which is small and quite recently revamped. (See Last Pic- for picture of hotel.

Overall rating: 3.8/5
We loved sitting down to have breakfast without the usual hustle and bustle of the inner city Cape Town is familiar for, or close to town area for that matter.. Coco Levant eatery is good not only for ones stomach but also on ones wallet, as portions are good in size and the bill at the end of the day not that huge, that you would have to hand over yourself in order to wash the dishes after you`re meal. The only thing I could recommend is for the owner and staff to perhaps incorporate some form of music, as it would liven up the place a bit, and also attract some people. Some good music playing in the background would also be a good addition to the eatery as it would make the atmosphere even more lively and inviting.
*Please note: This was a complimentary breakfast from Coco Levant and all views and thoughts are my own, and have not been influenced by the complimentary meal.
