EATERY MAGNIFICENT! All the elements combine perfectly at San Francisco


On a recent early Sunday morning trip to Moffett Retail Park for our monthly shopping, my family and I decided to enjoy a breakfast to prepare us for the ordeal! We chose San Francisco, a family-run coffee shop situated near Pick ‘n Pay Hyper Market at the mall.

It being a beautiful, clear and sunny autumn morning, we asked our friendly waiter to seat us at their outside patio. San Francisco’s cosy setting and rustic furniture makes it an ideal stop for couples, families and friends to relax and catch-up over a coffee or meal without feeling rushed. I found it ideal for those casual business meetings too.

Coffee for the adults and juice for the kids was ordered after which we scanned our menus to decide what was going to power us through the day. Once we had decided, the kids dashed off to dissipate some energy in the kids play area nearby while my wife and I caught up on the events of the past week while we enjoyed our coffees.

Before long, our meals arrived. A Breakfast Burrito, comprising of a tortilla filled with scrambled egg, bacon, mushroom and cheese, topped with salsa, served with chips and a free cup of coffee, for my wife and the Special Pork Breakfast, with two pork sausages, egg, bacon, mushroom, toast, jam and a free cup of coffee, for me.

Having seen the food arrive, our boys rushed over, out of breath, each having decided on an Early Bird breakfast with wors, two eggs, mushroom, toast and chips. I must say that the San Francisco menu is well-priced and the portions generous.

We all polished our plates and as the boys ran back to play, my wife and I sat back and enjoyed our free coffees.

Our total bill came to only R230, including a tip for our highly-efficient waiter. Needless to say, we skipped lunch that day, after being so well nourished by that breakfast. I can recommend this café to anyone visiting William Moffett Retail Park.

San Francisco Coffee Shop offers one of the best value-for-money breakfasts and has a great lunch menu with appetising afternoon tea options. The shop is open Mon-Fri from 8:30am to 6:00pm, on Saturday from 7:30 to 5:00pm as well as on Sundays from 8:00am to 3:00pm.
