Contessa Tea Connoisseur in Rivonia is not only one of my favourite places to meet a friend for tea, but it’s also a rather convenient venue for business meetings! And instead of the usual “Five Roses, Earl Grey or Rooibos” offering you get at most restaurants, you have a dedicated Tea Menu from which to choose (although I usually end up asking the waitress for suggestions.) I would definitely recommend trying their “Tea Tasting Menu” for R75 per person where you can sample six different teas while following the infusion instructions on your placemat!

The stores’ new food offering is definitely worth a mention. The Breakfast Menu will have you salivating within minutes – Spring Onion and Corn Crumpets, Cinnamon Oats with a Berry Compote, Cheese and Herb Cornbread with Salmon Scrambled Egg, Citrus French Toast, French Croissants and more!

It’s not much easier to choose what to have for lunch – Homemade Fish Cakes, Roasted Butternut Penne, Portuguese Beef Prego, Crustless Spinach Quiche, and Sweet Chilli and Ginger Chicken Salad, to name but a few. And don’t get me started on the cakes – Orange Poppyseed, Hot Chocolate Volcano and Nut Cheesecake. (You can see why I feel the need to have “meetings” at Contessa’s as often as possible...)
