  EatOut top spots for lazy brunches in Durban and surrounds

  7 Reasons to quit your job and move to Durban - parc. is one of the reasons. "If you do move to Durban I advise that you put away a substantial portion of your salary for bougie breakfasts at Parc Cafe on Saturday mornings. The best eggs benedict of your life is worth surviving on tuna for a week. They have live jazz on Saturdays, and you could drink wine and call it brunch with all the other people who pretend they can afford to eat there."

We don’t usually seek out the chef to compliment them, but Andy felt like he needed to give Brett Gentles a big hug after what was the best meal we have ever eaten in Durban, or South Africa."

  National Geographic, Beyond the Guidebook: "Last but not least, make sure to check out up-and-coming Glenwood. “Friendly hipsters”—it sounds like a fantasy, but not in the city’s trendiest suburb, a low-key bastion of beards, brunches, and bungalows. Magnetic attraction draws the moustachioed set to all-day breakfasts at Parc, a spectacle of locally sourced, seasonal dishes."
