WE EXPLORED A WORLD OF WHOLESOME, SATISFYING BREAKFAST FOODS AT INDIGO RESTAURANT AND BAR, ELOQUENTLY POSITIONED AT THE ROOFTOP OF THE MERCHANT HOUSE.
Indigo Restaurant and Bar at The Merchant House is a fabulous spot for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a beautiful garden terrace that one cannot help but adore. Executive Chef Rob Chipman is a renowned artisan in the kitchen which allows every visit here to be one where you’re left wholeheartedly satisfied. We’d never had the privilege of indulging in breakfast there, so, I took this as the perfect opportunity to rabble my girlfriends together and head towards The Merchant House. An added bonus of visiting here is that you can use their handy valet service, so you aren’t wasting time looking for a parking spot. Girls just want to have fun (and food) after all.
There are the familiar items you’d expect for breakfast, albeit executed very well with pre-mium ingredients. Smoked Salmon with crushed avocado on sourdough bread had us all Instagram Ready as it was presented beautifully on a slate slab, but, it wasn’t long before we were making the most out of the sharing concept that’s welcomed here at Indigo. Just as well really, as the French Toast served with mixed berries and vanilla cream made its way to our table I thought there was going to be a fight as to who would have the first bite. The Eggs and Avocado dish served with salsa verde aligns beautifully with the Mediterra-nean flair of Indigo. It’s serious business. Of course, you also have classic Benedict’s and omelettes to appease your morning hunger pangs as well. The richness of hollandaise, and the creaminess of the egg just makes me very very happy when it comes to their Eggs Royale.
Now, we can’t mention happiness without spotlighting The Blueberry Pancakes which are the lightest, tastiest ones I’ve ever had and are served with a decadent drizzle of blueberry syrup for extra bonus points. It’s some seriously intense stuff that is every bit as delicious as it is heart-stopping. Us? We love it. This must be what dreams are actually made of. It’s a worthwhile visit when you want to have a nice start to your day or indeed to take someone out. We would recommend ordering three or four of the dishes and sharing them with your dining companion(s). Now, don’t be surprised to see us hanging out there crying tears of joy into our coffee (served with delicious homemade biscotti) at every exquisite dish that is served. From 6.30am to 10.30am and 11am on weekends makes sure that you have the perfect excuse not to stay at home.
