Arbour Café & Courtyard is a French-inspired eatery in Illovo that is the brainchild of chef and restaurateur Robyn Timson. With a great selection of delectable tarts, cakes and macaroons, it seems Robyn designed the menu to derail anyone who just started a diet. Specialising in traditional crêpes with a variety of sweet fillings, like cinnamon, salted caramel & apples, or Nutella & banana, they also make galettes, savoury buckwheat pancakes, served with assorted fillings. I tantalised my taste buds with the mince ragout galette with egg, rocket and Parmesan.
