Breakfast at Benedicts & Bagels in Somerset West (2017-04-21) Photo Gallery | Restaurants 15 MAY 2017

It is extremely hard to miss the vintage, bright yellow painted house on the corner of St. James and Andries Pretorius in Somerset West. (And if the bright yellow hue isn’t enough to pique your interest, then there is the large Charlie Chaplin piece of art hanging in the middle of the stoep that might do the trick).

This is the home of Benedicts and Bagels, a lovely artisan eatery that specializes in, you guessed it, bagels and eggs benedict.

Chantelle visited the chiropracter situated in the same little complex and that is how we came to discover this brilliant little spot. The eatery is a tiny little art covered space with the bulk of its tables and chairs outside in a peaceful little courtyard.

The menu is small, and according to the chef, most of the ingredients are all either made or sourced locally, the end result being some particularly delicious light dishes. The coffee is good, and yes, because this is a artisan eatery, they do have a couple of craft beers available on the menu.

I thoroughly enjoyed eating proper American bagels last year in San Diego, and pleasingly, these bagels taste just as great!

[ P.S. The last two photos of the beetles eating the fruit on my as of yet unidentified tree in the front (and there are loads of them in this tree) are included purely because I now finally know the proper English name for this noisy yellow and black beetles – the common South African garden fruit chafer beetle! ]

Anyway, back to Benedicts & Bagels.

It is a lovely, tucked away spot that serves particularly tasty food in a peaceful setting, away from the bustle of main road Somerset West – in other words, well worth the stop if you’ve never eaten a proper bagel before!

The Problem of being the Size of a Jellybean Jessica 10 AUG 2011

The problem with being a size of a jellybean (back then) and been laid out on a queen-size bed, is that it is often quite easy to get lost on the bed and never make your way back to the edge where civilization lies.

Luckily if you do happen to tire yourself out while trying to find the end, well, at least you have a decent spot to nap! ;)
