Review – Plant Sunday Vegan Buffet

I’ve lamented about the lack of vegan eateries open in the Cape Town CBD on a Sunday for a while. You can imagine my surprise when Plant announced that not only would they be opening on a Sunday, but they would also be offering a VEGAN BUFFET (!) with an ever-changing theme. Fortunately, I was able to check out the first of their lunch specials: a South African-themed Vegan Buffet.

In addition to the buffet, they have a smaller Sunday Menu that consists of some of their staples: Breakfast Wrap (R85), Chia Breakfast Pudding (R55), Bagel (R75), Mushroom Crepe (R80), Plant Benedict (R65), PannekoekCroissant w/Jam & Cheese (R45), Pain Au Chocolat (R40), Croissant (R35).

But back to the important bit: the buffet.

The South African Style Buffet cost R130 for one full plate (overflowing with food) as well as a dessert: WHAT. A. BARGAIN!

I barely managed to get through this all… But I did, cos, you know… *sigh*

It is my wish that all Capetonians jump at this opportunity and support this incredible venture. The ONLY problem I foresee is that I may be living at Plant every Sunday and that I may end up bankrupt. But hey! On the bright side, I’ll always get great food with exceptional service!

For what it’s worth, Plant gets my stamp of approval for not only remaining absolutely consistent since they have reopened but also for raising the bar on whats on offer in the Mother City. Long may they continue this trend!
