Impromptu trip to Camps Bay

Not too long ago my sister-in-law surprised us with a very quick visit. After dropping her at the airport, while driving on the N2, we decided to take it to the beach. Unsure of which beach to go to, we randomly chose Camps Bay. We haven’t been there in a long time!

When we got there the beach was nice and empty (a first for us). We had views for days! Everything was so peaceful and quiet.

The ocean air got hubby hungry quickly and as we were walking down the strip, friendly staff at Mynt Café invited us for breakfast. Now this is my kind of service!  My pregnancy craving is sweet stuff and all I wanted was a pancake, waffle or flapjacks! I ordered the Protein Pancakes which consisted of 4 whey powder pancakes layered with blue berries, banana, mixed nuts and honey. It was divine, just what me and baby more wanted than needed. Hubby got himself an Eggs Benedict. I was too late to take a picture. Pappa bear was hungry. I loved the interior and we received great service. Definitely worth the visit!

After breakfast we took a leisurely stroll back to the car and home. It was just what the soul needed.

Beautiful Breakfast at Bean In Love

So this is a rather short post but well worth the mention. On one of me and hubby’s rare mornings off, we decided to have a quick breakfast. We visited Bean in Love in Paarl Main Road. I’ve been eyeing this little place for a while everytime we drive past. It was a sunny winter’s morning so we decided to sit outside and enjoy the clean air. I just loved their cappuccino! We tried their croissants and boy were we in love! They also sell a variety of things like spices, adventure bags, snacks, flowers, and obviously delicious coffee! (To name a few) When you in Paarl again, why not give them a go? We promise you won’t regret it. 🙂

I just love cappuccinos with pictures. :)
