Just outside the kingdom of Lesotho, and in the foothills of the magnificent Maluti Mountains, the little town of Clarens can be found. Known as the Jewel of the Free State Province of South Africa, this town and its surrounds are nothing short of visually spectacular, and offer a variety of things to do and see.
The Bon Appetit Deli & Bistro is idyllically nestled within this countryside. Its location inside Rosemary Centre in Clarens Square means that it is convenient and central to the locals that regularly visit and the tourists from all over the world. This popular eatery has a unique style and an innovative approach to food; combining French, Greek and other Mediterranean flavours to create an inclusive and novel menu.
This deli, bistro and tea shop boasts fabulous breakfasts that are all freshly prepared, light meals and irresistible cakes and sweets. Teas are imported from all over the world, and can be tasted and purchased here. Some are traditional, some totally unexpected; but all appealing to the many tastes and preferences of Bon Appetit’s visitors. Cheese and meat platters, gourmet croissants, salads, and other dishes are given the Bon Appetit twist to ensure that discerning diners have a really delicious, memorable gastronomic experience here.
The deli’s shelves are laden with a stunning variety of goods. These range from salty caramel brittle and an impressive variety of cheeses to artichokes, farm-made butter and yoghurt, Scottish salmon, duck breast and game. Local fruits are used to make most of the preserves, and those with a penchant for jams and marmalades will love perusing the array. Popular flavour combinations include apricot and almond, cherry and brandy, and apple and rum.
Thanks to having increased its physical space dramatically over the last few years, Bon Appetit is perfectly equipped to handle exciting events and celebrations. The lovely venue and excellent food is coupled with fantastic views of the mountains.
