In designing their venue, they have married their industrial roots with a stylish twist. Classic chandeliers in wrought iron designs gives a stylish element to the industrialized décor that defines the current trend. Soft white orchids next to hard wrought iron design feels like a classic restaurant brought into the 21st century.

It offers a contemporary dining experience with very friendly service. It also caters to those with families, with ample play area and activities to keep the little ones busy. It’s also very secure: there are no exits from the play area other than through the restaurant. Parents can enjoy their meals without having to worry about their kids wandering off.

The ambience was quite infectious, with people all around us having breakfast and chatting away. With its slightly more remote location, it offers a little escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.

A note from the organiser: A beautiful restaurant with a lot of sophistication and the play area will be a welcome relief for any parent with young children. They are definitely on my “date night” list.

Fleisherei has also made full use of the space available to them. Nothing feels cramped. Even the bathrooms are generous and roomy, while still staying in style with the rest of the decor.

Their freshly baked buns were something that stood out. Crispy on the top, but deliciously soft and tender on the inside, the buns were still warm when we were served.

Their Mexican Burger had delicious elements to it, with soft and creamy guacamole and a very smooth sour cream. But don’t let the softness fool you, this burger came with a massive kick! The Chef did not pull his punches when designing that burger.

In addition to this, those of us so inclined were treated to coffee with a kick before we braved the chilly morning to continue on to our next location.
