I can say with utmost confidence that this is my new favourite spot in Cape Town. It’s light, it’s fresh, it’s contemporary cool and oozes creative confidence. Tashas Constantia offers customers a casual, cosy spot for a divine brunch (the choices are endless), a deliciously healthy lunch (salads, sandwiches, Turkish flatbreads, quesidillas… the menu is enormous!) or a cup of heavenly coffee with a choice of scrumptious pastries, which are laid out on the counter beneath gorgeous, vast bell jars. The interior is warm yet subtle – whites, off-whites and wood blend for an at-home feel, complemented by simple décor and pretty cut-out leaves dangling from the ceiling. Tashas really has its own personality, one that we bonded with almost instantly!
My friend and I chose to test out the brunch and were blown away by what was on offer. I ordered the Bacon Rostis: potato rostis topped with streaky bacon, over-roasted tomatoes, rocket and a poached egg, drizzled with a forrestiera sauce. It was sensational to say the least and I quite literally scraped my plate clean. My friend went for a healthier option: the Forever Young, which consisted of rolled oats soaked in apple juice, mixed with crunchy muesli, topped with yoghurt, mixed berries and maple syrup, served in a glass. We left feeling overwhelmingly satisfied with not only the delectable dishes but the exceptional service and friendly manner. I was treated to a little box of colourful macaroons on my way out, which we sneakily enjoyed in the car on the way home.
