Bright, Beautiful and New

Bright and beautiful new breakfast room

If you visit Ocean View House regularly you’ll notice that some kind of improvement has usually taken place in your absence. This time you’ll be greeted by something really special – our enlarged and revitalised breakfast room.

The room now has a more contemporary look with fold-out doors that open onto the pool deck, creating a flow of light and space.

The buffet area has been enhanced, and coffee lovers will be delighted to find an espresso machine that serves rich and aromatic coffees made from beans we roast ourselves. Soft drinks and alcoholic beverages can be found in our popular honesty bar, while chefs Laurencio and Washington are on hand to prepare delectable smoothies and juices. What better way to relax than to settle into a deck chair by the pool, sipping on your favourite drink, while soaking up the fabulous sunshine.

Start the morning with a fabulous breakfast featuring our famous omelettes and other healthy options. And if you’re staying in for the day, you can enjoy our new menu of light lunches with an Asian influence. Try the Kingklip in coconut with pickled ginger, the prawn curry, the carpaccio or other treats. We now even have our own little veggie garden supplying spinach, herbs and other fresh ingredients to make the meals extra special.

When the guest house first opened more than 20 years ago our founder was given a specially commissioned photo of Cape Town and the Waterfront by his mother. That photo has been hanging in the breakfast room ever since, but over the years it has slowly faded and has also been in need of a touch-up. The restored and brightened photo is now back on the wall, reminding us every day of what a beautiful city we live in.

We love meeting people in our new breakfast room, and we hope to welcome you here soon.
