Baked Bistro sits at the end of Camps Bay, far away from the main overpriced and trendy strip. Located in an old original Camps Bay house, it nestles under the Twelve Apostles mountain range alongside Table Mountain.
One has a choice of indoor seating, or outdoors on the patio with a view of the mountain and passing parade. As always, outdoors was my choice.
Arriving at about 8.30am for breakfast, I had a choice of tables with only two others being occupied. By 9am the place was packed. It clearly has a regular following of locals.
Although the general menu is limited, it is interesting. There is a range of croissants and fillings to be had. Judging by what others were ordering, croissants seemed the overwhelming choice. Bucking the trend, I chose the free range chicken livers. These are done in a thyme sauce and served in a bowl with button mushrooms and a fried egg on top.
The chicken livers were done to perfection, soft and tender; however, I would have preferred a quantity of mushrooms equivalent to the livers in the dish, as towards the end of the meal the chicken livers were becoming a little overwhelming. To drink, I ordered the apple mint juice; the flavor however seemed neither mint nor apple. My meal was really good, really really good, enjoyable to almost the very last morsel. I ended breakfast with an almond croissant. It was okay, but a little too oily for my liking though.
The service was a little slow, but that is the leisurely pace of Camps Bay. Would I go there again? Absolutely.
