I came across a little article on this place in the Property 24 Mag and immediately wanted to go try it out.

What an awesome,unpretentious little place. It was very full when we got there and we had to wait a bit but we didn't mind at all. We had a very friendly, knowledgeble waiter called Byron.

Nice’s breakfast cups are uhh-mazing: two toasted bread ‘cups’ filled with perfectly poached eggs, a subtly spicy tomato and onion relish, mushrooms and generous slices of avocado sprinkled with Parmesan (R50).  You can even have them with crispy bacon (that is the veg version). The  Salmon Basket: a toast basket of scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, tomato relish and cream cheese (R50). Crumpets: a stack of fluffy crumpets with crispy bacon, strawberries, and marscapone drizzled in honey (R50).

Nice also serves lunch (delicious salads, paninis, grills, pies and pasta), as well as scrumptious cakes (lemon meringue, double belgian chocolate, cheesecake, carrot cake, roulade, lemon tart and brownies).

Nice also has a book store and a Nice Couture clothing shop which I didn't get a chance to see :( *sad face*. So this Sunday we're going with some friends and we will definitely visit the shops!

You can't book tables for breakfast so get there early if you have a large crew. The wait is definitely worth it.
