What is your favorite place to stop when on a road trip? Is it perhaps a coffee shop? Mine most definitely is. When on the road or traveling, grabbing a quick tasty bite to eat and a strong cup of coffee does the trick. Is a Coffee Shop or Café on your list when traveling? Every road trip is a call for a Coffee Shop stop.
Whether it is the addiction to the caffeine or the idea of grabbing something tasty or sweet to up the energy levels. It is always a great way to take a break when on the road or traveling. I had a few hours to spare and had a blog post that needed finishing up. That’s when I discovered my new favorite Coffee Shop when going through or in Port Elizabeth.

Brioché -Food and Coffee-, welcomed by the friendly staff, making me feel right at home. My eyes thought they were in “food heaven” with all the tasty treats on display. The service was prompt and the food was absolutely delightful.
A choice to dine inside or outside is up to you, but I the outside option. Although located in the city it has a peaceful and relaxing vibe to it. Here is a link to a Google map of the location or directions.

What’s on the Menu?
Having two of my favorites and an extra cup of coffee I only realized that there is more on the menu. After a filled roosterkoek, caramel and banana filled pancake I had no room for more. Luckily I was able to take something for the road.
The menu has a variety to choose from and has various vegan options as well. More than 50% of their greens used in foods and salads are certified organics. Real dairy cream and grain-fed free-range farm eggs are used in all their baked goods. They also make use of 100% pure, aspartame-free low GI and diabetic approved Xylitol.
The menu has an average selection as most coffee shops do, but there are some options I must highlight.
– Hot Beverages
A selection of coffees, from espressos to macchiatos, americano to a large selection of latés. One that was really good is the “hazelnut ganache hot chocolate latté”… For those not quite into coffee hot chocolate or a pot of tea are alternatives. Almond milk both dairy and soy-free is an alternative to milk.
– Cold Beverages
Ice coffee… Yes, they do have ice coffee as well. A range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages are available. From freshly squeezed juices to ciders and beers. Don’t forget the selection of wines on the list, but when you are on the road, especially as a driver don’t drink and drive.
As mentioned earlier the menu has options available for vegans. Selections such as bacon and mushroom quiche to stuffed butternut or a thin crust pizza to a variety of burgers. If you are looking for a light snack or quick meal there are salads, chicken wraps and the option of a toasted or fresh sandwich.
Savory or twin sweet pancakes are personal favorites, what is your favorite coffee shop meal? For more tempting images of food, treats, and coffee shop delights check out Brioché Food & Coffee in Port Elizabeth on Facebook or Instagram.
