    I had one of my best ever breakfast buffets at The Peach Tree restaurant in Cape Town’s Southern Sun Cullinan, a hotel named for a diamond.

    My best advice if you go? Go hungry! There is a massive hot selection of omelettes and egg benedicts made to order, as well as boerewors, bacon, hash browns, mushrooms, and more.

    The cold selections included wonderful mueslis, yogurts, a large variety of breads, pastries, cheeses, meats, smoked salmon, cereals, dried and fresh fruit.

    I loved the giant guavas, fresh granadillas and stewed dried fruit.

    There was also a table of gluten-free and vegetarian foods including pestos and hummus.

    This food wasn’t just tasty and tempting. It had the wow factor. For example there was a wheel of parmesan cheese that looked almost as big as a truck tire on one of the food tables and it wasn’t just for show. Diners had picked at it over the course of many breakfasts, like a flock of hungry birds.

    On another table, honey appeared to be pooling in a bowl, the catchment for a large hunk of honeycomb that was suspended in a frame above.

    I watched Cook Papama put the finishing touches on eggs benedict with a blow torch. He elevated breakfast to a spectator sport.

    It wasn’t perfect. A waitress came to my table and asked if I wanted tea or coffee. I asked for coffee. She brought me tea and then never came back to the table.

    With a view of the pool deck, the Peach Tree restaurant has dinner buffets too, and it’s website says it offers traditional South African food with subtle Malay influences.

    Located a 10-to-15 minute walk or shuttle ride from the V&A Waterfront, the Cullinan and The Peach Tree have a lot to compete with, food wise. The hotel offers free shuttle transportation to the waterfront, but the quality of food in house makes it difficult to justify going elsewhere.
