Casa Labia, the building and its collectables, have over many years been at the forefront of opulence in Muizenberg. It had a slight setback as a dedicated museum a few years ago, but has been "taken back" and is now a popular venue for breakfasts, teas and lunches.
About three years ago, we came for tea and scones outside, which at the time was not outstanding, but on this visit we sat inside. Effectively we were in a museum with lovely works of art around us and if we cared to walk around after we had placed our order, there were lovely views out towards the sea.
The service was attentive, but not irritating and i went for "the top of the menu breakfast". I have just looked on their menu to see what to call it and the best I can come up with, is their description: "eggs Pavarotti with poached eggs, spinach, pancetta & a red pepper Hollandaise sauce on sweet potato toast" It currently costs R88, which is not the cheapest breakfast in town, but was great value considering the creative, well plated, generous breakfast, combined as it was with the unique interior of Casa Labia and the great service. The other guests ordered smaller items from the menu, but all declared they were more than happy with what they got, although I am sure when we all go back again we will all order the... "eggs Pavarotti with poached eggs, spinach, pancetta & a red pepper Hollandaise sauce on sweet potato toast"!
