Errrr, went back a 2nd time w my daughter ... disappointing. We ordered bowl of bacon amongst other things, and it really had generic to no flavor. Very sad bc I love the concept. Bad day? Or new distributor?

Best BLT you will have - great bread but wonderful bacon. For the bacon lover there is ever possible bacon condiment you thought off and those you didn’t. Well worth the stop

Friendly service, a sunny street-side setting, a great selection of sandwiches (with the obligatory bowl of bacon thrown in), topped off with a decent selection of bottled beers - a winning combo!

If you love bacon (if you don’t we can’t be friends - haha), then this place is a must! It’s small & quaint. Amazing and unique breakfast menu. Did I mention the bacon? The best! We loved it!

We visited this trendy establishment one quiet winter's afternoon and were very impressed with the friendly service and scrumptious sandwiches we were served. Bacon on Bree is walking distance from the heart of Cape Town, making it the perfect pit stop on one's route around...More
