So last week I stumbled across another new Durban cafe - and what a gem it turned out to be! It's right next door to the Glenwood Bakery, which is a relatively quiet little spot so it's a great escape from the hustle of everywhere else. Great decor: simple, clean, great colours and furniture. Free WiFi. Great people: Brett Gentles, the friendly owner and "one of the best creative chefs to come out of Durban" (to quote an article in the Mercury!), has worked at the 9th Avenue Bistro and has now started Parc. Cafe with his sister Lara. And the foooooood...
“Our name is a bit of a pun, ‘parc’ in French means park as in with trees and grass - we wanted to create a sanctuary in the city (like a park). It also came from ‘park off’ as in come chill.”
Then I had the roast beetroot, radish, green apple, lettuce, avo, lentils and goat cheese vinaigrette - my word. Deeeelicious. And I could have gone on coz I wanted to try so many more things, but I managed to not pig out and save some for next time, which will be very soon.
How awesome are these little cup jerseys? Too flipping cool, and handmade by Brett's mom! They're for sale at R65.
