“Expensive Average Place”
Review of Baconville

Baconville
Ranked #14 of 109 Restaurants in Bellville
Description: A bacon-themed restaurant in Willowbridge, a beautiful open-air mall in Cape Town's northern suburbs. Delicious meals for breakfast, brunch and lunch. For those who, amazingly, don't like bacon we have dishes for you too. Children friendly with a play area outside. Coffee to die for, fabulous milkshakes and cake! What more could you want?! Oh ... a drop of local beer, wine or spirit? Coming up ...

We waited 10-15 minutes for coffee, then 45 minutes for the breakfast, lots of empty tables, so no excuse. The bacon was hard and one of our friends sent the fried eggs back as being underdone (the whites still runny) Total for 4 breakfasts and 3 coffee's was R374 plus tip making it R400! Bit steep so will not be returning sorry.

It's a nice an cozy little corner in Willowbridge. They mainly do sandwiches, burgers and hot dogs, but on a gourmet level. Most of it contains bacon.

Priced relative reasonably, with decent portions that keeps you going for the rest of the day (we skipped dinner). Good quality.

Lunch with friends the setting is good in Willow Bridge mall, plenty of cheap parking above and under ground. Needless to say their emphasis is on all things bacon. There is a good variety of dishes all with reasonable prices and the service was quite good.

Unfortunately it is unremarkable like dozens of others its has nothing to set it aside and move from average to good. The food is OK but thats all it is, you should try it especially if you are into bacon, but don't set your expectations to high, I will no doubt give it a second chance but no time soon.

Dear Eddie

Thank you for your review. Perhaps you could give us more details about your expectations and how they weren't met?

We're happy to read that you felt there was a good variety and that our prices are reasonable as well as being satisfied with the service. We feel that our pasture fed, air-dried bacon is quite remarkable compared to supermarket bacon; that our service is far above average and that our ingredients are fresh and locally sourced.

Would love to hear some ideas, as we do from all our customers!

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Lizzie

After the process used to cure the bacon served was explained i knew why it tasted so good! Their breakfast special is more than emough and at R40 including a coffee it was good value.

If you want to do a brekkie ... this is the place!

Thank you Adrian! So glad you enjoyed the bacon. And, yes, the breakfast special (2 eggs, bacon, toast and tomato with an Americano coffee) for R40 is amazing!!
