The House Of Bean and Leaf Langebaan recently opened and I was so excited to be invited to come with a friend and try out their restaurant when they did a test run the Friday before they opened. I don’t often take time off from work during the week so any excuse to do that is always a treat! I love eating out and trying out new places.

Upon arrival I wasn’t sure where to park because the parking appears limited however after finding a parking spot on the road I saw that there is a parking lot directly opposite the restaurant with ample parking so make sure to turn into that parking.
I love that there is an outside seating area as well as indoors. I have always loved sitting outside, and now with the pandemic I always feel more comfortable in the fresh air.
The House Of Bean and Leaf Menu
There is a mind-blowing choice of teas on the menu, so if you are a tea person this is a must visit restaurant! Their tea collection includes rooibos, honeybush, ceylon, chai, spicy ginger rooibos, sleep easy tea, green unfermented rooibos, English breakfast tea, French earl grey, Singapore breakfast tea and silver moon tea.
Since I am not much of a tea drinker I ordered a cappuccino and it arrived with a little meringue. I love meringues and found this to be a delightful treat. The meringues come with the coffees and the teas. I loved the cappuccino, it was premium quality and delish.
The food menu includes all day breakfasts, freshly baked scones and muffins, savoury Belgian waffles, sandwiches, burgers and salads.
I love breakfasts and I love it when I can order breakfasts all day, it is not fun sleeping late on a weekend only to find you have missed the cut off time! However I also love burgers so I went with the chicken burger with gourmet mushroom topping with chips (you can opt for salad or chips). The burgers come with a wholegrain mustard mayo, served separately.
The burger was lovely, the roll was fresh and tasty, the chicken was cooked to perfection and the salad inside the burger was fresh and lovely. I really enjoyed the mushrooms which were served in a bowl next to the burger. They were done beautifully. I enjoyed the chips.
The burgers options are beef short rib, free range chicken and chickpea & brinjal. The chickpea & brinjal burger is vegan, however the roll is not vegan, so this is a great option for vegetarians but if you are vegan just let the waiter know to lose the bun when they serve it.
My friend that joined me enjoyed her meal too, she had the BLT sandwich and gave feedback that she enjoys her chips more crispy. She told me she has now eaten there a few times with her family since they opened and they took her feedback to heart serving crispier chips.
For dessert you can choose from a variety of waffles or ice cream in a bowl. I chose the Berry Compote waffle with ice cream and it was delicious. The waffle is a quarter waffle and while it looked small it filled the spot perfectly without me feeling overfull at the end of my meal or wanting for more.
Please note that there are also gluten free waffles available for sweet and savoury, on request.
