Indulge in the Loading Bay’s ethical food

The Place: Loading Bay

Ideal for: Conscious indulgences. There is no sign of compromise in the flavours, smells and ambience at the Loading Bay. Guests understand the ingredients, their unique qualities and origins of the dishes.

Order This: Conscious eating doesn’t necessarily mean health conscious exclusively, you can have it all. Start your day with a green goodness bowl — it’s a warm, creamy, saucy surprise. Organic kale and spinach blanched in butter and tossed in sesame seeds, lemon zest and chilli flakes. The green goodness sauce, two poached eggs and grated Asiago cheese bring a savoury creaminess to breakfast. A cardamom bun is a must to end your meal. The knotted sweet treat is an homage to the Scandinavian vibe of Loading Bay.

De Waterkant, Cape Town
