A weekend without brunch is a weekend wasted. My favourite weekend activity is finding a new brunch spot, so I was happy when I came across Dignita online and quickly added it the brunch list (I know, a list? What a loser.)
Dignita’s motto is ‘Eat Well, Do Good’. Eat Well because they work with local suppliers to serve delicious home-made brunch all day, and Do Good because Dignita is part of a Not For Sale social enterprise model. Not For Sale is an international organization that provides certified training programmes and coaching; these social enterprises support a vulnerable target group of individuals, assisting them in developing greater resilience as each seeks to become reintegrated into the workplace and society. 100% of Dignita’s profits go towards supporting the work of Not For Sale.
The decor is totally Pinterest-worthy. All hanging plants, succulents, hanging lights, copper and geometric wall pieces.
80% of the time, if there are pancakes on the menu then there will be pancakes in my belly, with the only exception being something with eggs. So understandably the menu had me torn between the American pancakes with fruit and the dreamy-sounding Benny Boy.
We’d had a bit of a long leisurely morning so by the time I’d washed my hair and actually got out of the door it was more like lunch time and I was STARVING. I needed some coffee and some protein so Benny Boy won and I was presented with some pretty sexy looking eggs and a hunk of potato hash.
Before and after the carnage.
They also do home-made desserts and sweet treats. Some more saintly than others. Some proper chunky Dutch apple pie too.
There was a queue when we arrived and we had to wait a little while to get served but the food was well worth the wait. They do a mighty-fine cup of coffee too, as you can see from my super smug coffee face.
So, if you’re looking for somewhere to eat well and do some good in the process get yourself down to Dignita.
