People may seem they’re going to a shopping mall for the clothes and cinemas but this is just a cover up for their insatiable love for the bistros. In particular, Caffé Magnifico in Canal Walk and Willowbridge where you can get two rump steaks with chips or a salad, two scoops of Italian Gelato and two sodas. Get all of this for only R108.
While the world is filled with good bistros, there’s really only one that stands out – Caffé Magnificio. Set in the trendy Canal walk and Willowbridge shopping centres, Caffé Magnifico is a family run bistro and combines delicious food with trendy surroundings. It’s this combination that makes Caffe Magnifico the central hot spot before, during and after a shopping spree. Be warned though, visiting Caffé Magnifico before going shopping has left many unable to move because of full-belly-itus.
You can expect delicious food regardless of when you use this Groupon – Two 250g rump steaks lathered in Caffé Magnifico’s legendary sauce with chips or a salad and a soft drink. After this meaty mouth-watering experience, you get to indulge in two scoops (one for you and one for your partner) of Caffé Magnifico’s delicious and renowned imported Italian Gelato. Authentic flavours such as rich chocolate, pistachio, lemon sorbet and berry will grace your palate.
Don’t be surprised if other shoppers stop dead in their tracks and watch you eat. They’re probably envious and wish they were you. Anyone who’s ever walked past Caffé Magnifico will know what this sort of gob-smacked jealousy feels like.
Gelato fact: While many believe Gelato originated in Italy, real Gelato actually originated in the 1850’s when a Russian gypsy predicted with tarot cards that the Russian Tsar would eat an iced milky dessert shaped like a tennis ball. This caused the Tsar to experiment in the kitchen until he managed to invented the first Gelato. It was liver flavoured.
