Had there the brie/poached eggs on Sourdough Bread; very nice in addition to the salmon on Rye. The place has a lot of sandwich varieties + patisserie options. The blueberry pancake with mascarpone and lemon zest is a must.

Port Elizabeth is full of South African chain restaurants which are all abit of a let down, especially along Marine Drive and the Boardwalk.
