Since opening in December 2007, the restaurant has built a reputation for serving one of the best breakfasts in Clarens. Describing his recent breakfast at 278 on Main, Brendan Seery, Executive Editor, The Star said "The omelettes and cappuccinos are the equivalent of the best anywhere in the world."
The breakfast menu ranges from cereal with yoghurt and honey for the not so hungry to a hearty English breakfast.
On the menu throughout the day are a variety of salads comprising fresh farm produce wherever possible and mouth-watering sweet and savoury pancakes. You'll find many international favourites like toasted cheese & tomato as well as scrumptious treats served on ciabattas or toasted paninis.
When the weather is chilly, a bowl of Sue's home-made soup or one of her specialty pasta dishes is always a good option. And if you're not in a hurry, the Beef & Guinness or Baboti are well worth waiting for. Or if you're simply in the mood for a sweet treat you can't go wrong with the chocolate brownies, scones and cream or freshly baked muffins.
Dinner is always a culinary delight - try the vegetable spring rolls, duck liver pate with toasted ciabatta or the baked Camembert with Melba toast. Main course specialties include, lamb shank, melt-in-the mouth lamb curry, oxtail and of course phenomenal Slow roasted duck in an orange brandy sauce. End your meal with one of Sue's outrageously decadent desserts.
