Mulberry & Prince opened the pink door on Pepper Street in 2016 and since then they’ve become well known for their mouthwatering dinners and their alluring, modern interior. Nearly every design magazine had some or other shout-out to the pale pink, marble and gold dining area – the stuff of Pinterest dreams.
Now co-owners and chefs Cornel Mostert and Cynthia Rivera have extended their offering, adding a very indulgent Sunday Brunch option that will lure even the most hungover Capetonians from their beds.
From September, you can join them from 10 am for a lazy Sunday menu that pays homage to comfort food and the restaurant’s American influence – with Chef Rivera hailing all the way from New York.
You can look forward to treats like buttermilk biscuits smothered in house-made sausage gravy, chicken and waffles with Texas style hot sauce as well as brioche french toast infused with nutmeg and served with whipped honey butter and maple syrup. My personal favourite was the buttermilk pancakes served with a strawberry butter. So good! There is also an array of sides that you can add to your dish such as candied bacon, housemade hashbrowns and cheesy grits (the American cousin of millie pap).
And since it’s Sunday, you can pair breakfast with a mimosa made with fresh naartjie juice and/or try their spicy bloody mary garnished with a blue cheese stuffed green olive.
This is an ideal outing if you are looking to indulge. There are really no healthy options – it’s carbs, butter and cream galore. The menu is unfortunately also pretty unfriendly for vegans, but there are one or two options for vegetarians. If you’re the kind who likes your bacon covered in sugar, this is going to hit all the right spots.
Mulberry & Prince Kitchen and Bar is situated at 12 Pepper Street in Cape Town just off the trendy Bree Street strip. They will now be open every Sunday from 10:00 to 14:00 for brunch.
