Breakfast at Cafe Albert in the little Karoo town, Prince Albert

Send to Kindle

Possibly the best breakfast I’ve ever had and a mean cappuccino to boot is at Café Albert in the little Karoo town, Prince Albert. I can’t claim to be a connoisseur, but a weekend isn’t a weekend for me until I’ve gone out for breakfast. As such, I’ve tried breakfast spots all over South Africa (and in many other countries) …


Breakfast at Café Albert


This is not a 5 star hotel breakfast spread. Yes, I’ll admit the breakfast at The Palace of the Lost City at the Sun City Resort is impressive due to its sheer size and the number of options on offer, but who really wants crispy duck for breakfast?

No, the breakfast at Cafe Albert stands out because of its delicious simplicity, the charm of its location (think sidewalk café on a tree-lined street), the friendliness and accommodating nature of its owner and the freshness of its ingredients – homemade health bread, freshly laid eggs, milk just collected from the dairy down the road.

Café Albert is the spot for breakfast, brunch or lunch and the Prince Albert locals seem to have come to the same conclusion.

PS. If it’s still on offer, try the breakfast special (eggs – scrambled or poached – with bacon and avocado on homemade health bread). Yum!

    I am wanting to get an e-mail address for William and Colleen Penfold of the Prince Albert Country Store. Are you perhaps able to help me. I lost track of them when they left CT and I have now traced them to Prince Albert and would like to get in touch again.
    Kind Regards,
