Mantra Cafe in Camps Bay
Stunning hotspot in The Mother City
Opened in December 2016, this fabulous cafe and bar is a welcomed addition to the Camps Bay area. The charming seaside venue, gives customers the opportunity to grab a bite to eat with breathtaking beach views whilst enjoying the comfortable welcoming decorations of the interior.
Melissa’s being the umbrella of the cafe, gives you the yummy recognizable favourites on the menu. The range of meals is perfect if you are unsure what you really feel like - it happens to us often, don’t worry! The breakfasts are always a divine choice, especially if you are in the mood for light fluffy pastries, accompanied with beautifully textured preserves.
Our favourite however is the Smoked Salmon Hash Brown from the breakfast menu. The baby marrow and potato hash brown is topped with smoked salmon, cream cheese and caper salsa- filled with flavour and surprisingly light (not overly oily at all), along with a free range egg- YUM!
The lunch and dinner menu is as satisfying as the breakfast, making it an all-day type of place - perfect for all times of the day. Our favourite from the lunch and dinner selection, if you are willing to fork out a little extra is the prawns; man-o-man are they fabulous. Grilled prawns and lemon butter sauce - can’t hold us back, that’s for sure!
We love the stunning view from the restaurant onto the beach.
Tip: If you go towards late afternoon, order a platter for the table and then enjoy the sunset with a drink… or two!
Note: Mains can be a little pricey, but this is Camps Bay after all!
Opening Times: Monday - Saturday: 8am - 10.30pm; Sunday: 9am - 10.30pm
