Based in the Silo District in the V&A Waterfront, The Yard makes an excellent post-Zeitz Mocca expedition brunch spot every Sunday from 10am. And at 12 noon, the jazz starts too.
The Yard’s all-new brunch menu includes a classic brunch menu like croissants and Eggs Benedict, topped with The Yard’s Maltaise sauce – a blend of blood orange juice and classic Hollandaise sauce. There’s Bircher Muesli (mixed with berries, rooibos, cinnamon-spiced peaches and a crumbed nut brittle) and an egg-white soufflé omelette (made with brie cheese, wild mushrooms, avocado and baby spinach).
For something sweet, try the berry-and-liquorice and lemon meringue waffles. Bagel-lovers can enjoy a fresh bagel served with saffron chicken tikka and a side of turmeric mayo and mango chutney. The Yard also serves savoury waffles with a choice of grated beef mince bobotie, prawn bisque or chicken tikka masala toppings.
The Yard’s brunch showpiece is traditional Indian dosa, which is both vegan and gluten-free. This fermented rice flour pancake is co-founder G.P. Singh’s signature offering. Dosas can be ordered with chicken biryani, keema-spiced lamb, palak paneer or dal makhani.
