The Dog’s Bollocks grows its family to include the Bitches Tits & Deluxe Coffee

Sign on the corner of Buitenkant and Roodehek Rd aims to grab your attention. The Dogs Bollocks has found a wife!

The Dog’s Bollocks has found a wife and she has the slightly rude name that I am sure must be grabbing drivers attention as they head down Buitenkant Street.   The Dog’s Bollocks are now serving breakfast and lunch – admittedly all under different names – what a fabulously unusual approach!   At the back of the L-shaped property Deluxe micro coffee roastery have moved onto the property.

I headed down there yesterday to try their new delicious sounding sandwich menu and to sample Deluxe’s coffees.  For those that do not know the venue,  it is the initiative of Chef Nigel Woods who simply took over an alley and a small wharehouse space and popped what looks like granny’s furniture into the alley and opened a restaurant that only offers burgers.  Check out my blog on the Dog’s Bollocks to read more.

The industrial looking entrance to the Dog’s Bollocks – good to know what you are looking for in Roodehek rd as it is easy to go past!

I  was lucky enough to find a free table!  A small miracle if you know what this spot is like at night!  I chatted to the girls who are manning the cooking station – Nigel is doing the night shift and the ladies look after lunch.  Both Megan and Anel were really welcoming and friendly.  Megan trained as a chef at Vega and has moved here from Jason’s Bakery.  This is Anel’s first job in a “kitchen” and she is loving it!  Once I had popped my order of the Hero Meatballs onto the wall (after being warned that this batch had lots of chilly!) I headed into the gorgeous space of Deluxe Coffee and ordered a flat white.  The guys who are working behind the counter are seriously nice – they explained to me that the coffee I was having was made from the house blend – 45% Brazil, 45% Guatemala and 10% Ethiopia – it was a rich and creamy blend – smooth and strong and I loved it!  How fabulous to have a great coffee spot two blocks away from my home!

Deluxe Coffee Micro Roastery opened here a month ago! The staff are super friendly!

Shortly after my coffee, my delicious sandwich was ready.  I know you need to bring most things to the Dog’s Bollocks – they do not serve any drinks other then wine – but I forgot to bring serviettes!  My delicious Meatball Hero sandwich was seriously yummy and just about as messy as my burger experiences here!

Dogs Bollocks Hero Meatball sandwich. Too yummy! With serious chillies!

Overall Assessment:

I had one of the best cups of coffee I have had in years -it is so fabulous to have these guys in my “hood”.  My meatball sandwich was seriously delicious – quite oily though – so it will have to be for special occasions – this is not a spot to pop into for the health conscious!

The name of the lunch time venue does not resonate well with me.  The name the Dog’s Bollocks somehow is quirky and it cannot be mistaken for what it is – however the double meaning of the “B******’s T*t’s just does not feel right – it does not automatically feel like straight humour -I understand that the sign will create attention – which is of course the aim.

Naturally the venue is quirky and fabulous and I must admit I love it!  So, I will continue to be a groupie!

The Lunch menu!

Sign on Buitenkant St

Now serving breakfast too!

Cooking lunch!

Address: Roodehek Rd – head down Buitenkant – at the Shell Garage – turn left into Roodehek Rd – you will see the alley on your left.  Booking is not possible and tables on a first come first served.  For dinner he is now cooking 50 burgers – however – it is still wise to get there at 5pm to get a table.  Write your order on the wall!  Follow them on Facebook. Note they are also open for breakfast – their operating hours have not been updated on Facebook yet – so I am not sure what to advise! Note they are open Mon – Sat (closed Sunday)

Deluxe Coffee – closed Sunday – simply turn up and relax in this wonderful space!  Note that Deluxe Coffee has just opened in Franschhoek next to Reubens.  Finally great coffee in Franschhoek!  I hear a rumour that Bean There Coffee is also going to open in Franschhoek.  Lucky Franschhoek!
