“Wonderful View, Great Position.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

We were looking for somewhere to have breakfast and came across this little restaurant positioned right next to the beach at Blaauwberg and with a wonderful view of Table Mountain.
The interior is small, basic and intimate with a "shabby chic" kind of an ambience. The restaurant also has a small bakery offering a selection of cakes and pastries, all of which looked very tempting.
We ordered the Eggs Benedict and French Toast with a filling of Marmalade, both were very tasty and not too badly priced. Service was adequate and the food was well presented, portions fairly generous and delivered within a reasonable time frame. Looking around at the other diners, they all seemed happy with their orders and the food from the small but diverse breakfast menu had something for most people.

This is a quaint little restaurant which we would have liked to visit for dinner but unfortunately time prevented this but we enjoyed our breakfast and would return given the opportunity.

“Indulgence across the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Petit Fours has one of the best locations in Cape Town - with the beach at its doorstep - and the best baked goodies on offer. The cheesecake, carrot cake, and divine chocolate cake rounds are simply heavenly - enjoyed outside on the stoep, or inside the quaint tea room on a blistery cold and windy Blouberg day. The breakfasts are also excellent, and so is the service.
