Breakfast buffet at the Table Bay Hotel

Buffet breakfast

Through an arrangement of circumstance Kerry-Anne and I were invited to visit Sun International's Table Bay Hotel (the one next to the V&A Waterfront mall), to enjoy their buffet breakfast before setting out to the other side of Table Bay Harbour to take a few photos of Cunard's awesomely HUGE and beautiful Queen Mary 2. (I'll post a few photos of her docked in the harbour soon.)

I had previously visited the The Atlantic restaurant at the Table Bay Hotel for a phenomenal lunch, so I was more than looking forward to what I anticipated would be an absolute feast. It would take me hours and many words to describe all the yummy dishes that we tasted, so I'm afraid that you'll just have to visit for yourself! :)

Just to give you an overview, let me list a selection of the 230 dishes that comprised the buffet, starting with a plethora of fruit dishes, regular cereals, yummy muesli, yoghurt and nuts; cold meats, salmon, tuna, olives and other savoury treats; cheese, bread, and pastries (including the most delectable custard-filled pastries you could ever imagine); dainty pieces of sushi and nigiri, with a bowl of fresh oysters; scrambled egg, and the most awesome poached eggs and ham; crispy and not-crispy bacon; chicken, beef and pork sausages; mushrooms, French toast and other warm dishes; a small selection of Indian curry dishes; and finally, the daily carvery (usually gammon or crispy duck). What a mouthful! ;)

    I’m wandering. There are always so many clients to justify all this good food?
    When I was travelling around the world, stayng often in very smart hotels, breakfast was like a party!!! The one I’ve always liked best was the one at the Bali Hyatt. What a nostalgia!!!!

    I don’t know Cristina – what I can say is that there was an awful lot of food left over when they closed the restaurant after lunch. But then, I guess if you’re staying at a hotel like the Table Bay you would expect to have an opulent experience – this is after all what one pays for. :)

    Hi Jan,

    Unfortunately I haven’t even been inside of the Cape Grace, so I’m not sure.

    The Table Bay is legendary – it really is nice. The Cape Grace likewise (I believe). Friends have stayed at the Table Bay and loved it. Location-wise, I may prefer the Table Bay. But, the Cape Grace just sounds so elegant that I’ve always actually wanted to stay there myself. I don’t think you can go wrong with either really.

    The Cape Grace is slightly closer to Table Mountain and overlooks the Yacht basin (that’s her in the back of the pic). It’s more in the middle of the Waterfront area, and the Table Bay is at the end of the V&A Mall. In fact, the mall leads directly into the hotel, which is convenient.

    I hope this helps! Let me know which you choose. :)
