Tucked away in the quaint little Birdhaven shopping centre in Illovo is The Arbour Café and Courtyard. The Arbour is a French-inspired café and crêperie and is home to many breakfast and coffee enthusiasts; priding itself on delicious and wholesome food, sourced from the freshest ingredients. Famous for their gluten-free, buckwheat galettes (savoury French pancakes), the beautifully balanced and well-presented menu is perfect for a summer morning, sunny afternoon and just recently, balmy evening.
The little café is just short of three years old, and in that time has peppered its already versatile menu with delicious offerings – from butter croissants and decadent cakes, to duck confit orange and fennel salads and, of course, a selection of bubby, wine and imported French ciders.
Chef Zané Robins has just launched an all-new menu and Arbour Cafe is now keeping its doors open for the public during the evenings on a Wednesday to Saturday, where hearty and healthy meals will be served.
Kosher prepackaged goods are also available: fresh challahs are delivered every Friday and sandwiches can be preordered upon request.
Zapper is available for easy payment and drive past collections can be arranged.
They will also be introducing a loyalty program this month, benefitting those regulars they love so much.
The French-inspired café is dog friendly and is equipped with free Wi-Fi.
The venue is available for functions and pop ups.
