Bottomless bubbles and brunch at Arbour Café and Courtyard

As social distancing, day entertaining and outdoor venues replace late nights, bustling dinner services and restaurants packed to the brim, Birdhaven’s beloved Arbour Café & Courtyard is finding new ways to delight customers.

Owners Larry Hodes and Josh Simon have collaborated with Anthonij Rupert Wyne to launch brunch and bottomless L’Ormarins Cap Classique for lazy weekend mornings and afternoons in the sun.

“The brunch concept – a combination of breakfast and lunch – is already popular in South Africa but adding bottomless bubbles to the mix is a global trend,” says Larry.

“Bottomless bubbles and brunch are incredibly popular in countries like New York, Melbourne, London and even parts of the Middle East.”

Seasoned chef now turned restaurant owner, Josh recalls the inspiration for the idea. “Having spent some time in Florida USA, I saw how much guests enjoyed bottomless mimosas and the incredible Southern hospitality. When I returned to South Africa, I wanted to set up a similar concept.”

Now having partnered with Larry and looking for fresh ideas to allow customers to enjoy their food and courtyard, the duo saw the perfect opportunity to bring bottomless brunch to Birdhaven.

“While we are creating a new menu to kick off our brunches, there will be some old favourites,” adds Josh.

“We want to elevate palates and excite customers with dishes they will come back for again and again.”

The menu will comprise hearty brunch items with a classic French twist, designed to pair beautifully with traditional and blushing mimosas prepared naturally with L’Ormarins Cap Classique.

“Having L’Ormarins on board is a real coup,” says Larry.

“They are a well-established and loved winemaker and their Cap Classique wines are perfect for our concept. We believe strongly in the power of collaboration to ensure an incredible customer experience.”

Winemaker Zanie Viljoen says, “At Anthonij Rupert Wyne, we always look for innovative ways to best share our products. Happy people eating great food with friends and family in a beautiful sunny courtyard with our L’Ormarins Cap Classique wines on tap is the perfect opportunity.”

Look out for homemade brioche French toast with strawberries soaked in L’Ormarins Classic Brut and delicate salmon royale. With all goods freshly prepared on-site by Arbour Café guests can be assured of the ultimate safety and freshness.
