DECADENT TASTY DELIGHTS: Wholesome meals and speedy service at Sage Coffee Shop

BY JEANICE SCHALKWYK - JULY 31, 2014

Sage Coffee Shop, situated in Newton Park, Port Elizabeth, is truly a gem both from a business and a social point of view. Your correspondent found the café ideal for those out-of-the-office espresso meetings with clients and business partners - as well as for breakfasts and lunches with friends and family.

After rushing out the door without having breakfast one recent morning, I realized that I needed a healthy and wholesome meal if I was to last my busy work schedule that day. So, I decided to stop by Sage Coffee Shop, which was highly-praised by a co-worker.

I rushed into the shop and was immediately attended to by their friendly waitress, Unathi. As I waited for my coffee to arrive, I browsed their menu but could not decide on what to have, as everything sounded remarkably delicious.

The menu had such a huge variety - breakfasts, salads, quiches, pancakes, potatoes, grills, pastas and much more. There were also inviting muffins and cakes on display. Not knowing what to order, Unathi recommended I try their bacon, mushroom and cheese omelette. Trusting her judgement, I went with her recommendation.

While I eagerly awaited my breakfast, I noticed Sage’s friendly owner, Lindy Walker, happily interacting with customers and ensuring that their needs were quickly met. Patrons can always expect excellent, speedy service from this establishment!

Soon my generously-served and well-presented meal arrived. It was a true melt-in-your-mouth experience! The texture, taste, and everything that went with it, all combined into the best omelette I have ever had. A Sage Coffee Shop omelette is definitely a must for all who cannot do without a good breakfast. I finished off my meal with a nice, strong blend of coffee.

Before I left, I was informed that Sage Coffee Shop also has tasty daily lunch and afternoon coffee / cake specials on during the week, which I am eager to try. They can cater for corporate groups and private functions of up to 50 people at exceptionally affordable prices.

After being impressed by my nutritious breakfast and Sage’s quick and efficient service, I can highly recommend that you stop by their coffee shop. For convenience, they are open Monday-Friday (8am-4pm) and on Saturdays (8am-2pm). Everything on their menu is prepared on site.

The next time you feel like a delightful breakfast or lunch with clients or colleagues or for any corporate catering needs, contact Sage Coffee Shop on 041 363 8438 or visit them at 4 Pickering Park, Pickering Street in Newton Park, Port Elizabeth.
