Doppio Zero recently opened a branch in Stellenbosch on Plein Street and we decided to head over for a quick lunch to see what all the buzz was about!
The restaurant has a welcoming vibe and friendly staff who greet you at the door. The walls are filled with artwork, which matches the rather trendy décor and slow café music. One of the entrances to the restaurant has a display of delicious baked goods, making it easy to pop in for a croissant or to sit down and enjoy a wonderful breakfast, lunch or dinner with a few friends.
Their menu offers a wide variety of options, sorted by tapas, burgers, salads & bowls, mains, pastas, pizzas and desserts. Some of the main meals may be a bit pricey, but finding an affordable option isn’t difficult. They also have a lot of vegetarian options, including the falafel burger, which I’m definitely trying during my next visit.
I ordered a freshly squeezed carrot, orange and pineapple juice, and my friend ordered a cappuccino. The juice was really fresh and yummy, while we could have done with an extra shot of espresso with the cappuccino.
For lunch, I had the Soul Bowl which consists of Thai green coconut curry chicken, quinoa & bulgur wheat, broccoli, edamame peas, bok choy, spring onions, toasted cashew nuts and coriander. All-in-all the bowl was delicious with some room for improvement when it comes to the traditional Thai green curry flavours meant to bind the dish together. It was also a decent portion for only R79.
If you’re a lover of Jazz music, be sure to visit them on Saturday evenings from 6 pm, when they have a live jazz band performing.
