Without cake, birthdays would be solemn, dessert menus would just be menus and food fights would be made up of less-exciting savoury weaponry which would probably be given up in favour of an arsenal made up entirely of air. Ensure celebrations, as well as battles, are always sweet with today’s Groupon: cake and tea or coffee for R30 at Lombardy Boutique Hotel.
Known to send the average human being into sparkly, wide-eyed wonder, put more than an icing-filled smile on a face and induce bouts of hysterical happiness, cake should more appropriately be termed the eighth world wonder. And when combined with teas and coffees of equal wonder wielding capabilities in the Lombardy Boutique Hotel restaurant, the united force of the two can spark a tea-time enchantment. Whether coffee-canoodler or tea-devotee, Groupon-graspers can choose which beverage to warm up their insides with, provided they have coherent sentence stringing abilities. Making Marie Antoinette and the rest of the French population wish they could don a South African accent for a day, the cake and tea or coffee combo will have your tummy doing jovial jigs as delicious mouthfuls are sent through your lips and into a welcoming belly.
Renowned for its sophistication, outstanding service and impeccable quality, the Lombardy Restaurant is one of those places you just can’t help slipping on a flapper dress or gentleman’s suit for. The restaurant contains three intimate dining rooms, including a library in which to delight your palate and eyes, in turn delighting your delightful form. Not only does the restaurant have a chic and classy interior, but the spectacular garden views are enough to make a meadow cow feel like it’s been living an unfruitful life in a barren Kalahari dessert.
Fake Fact: A restaurant in Greece prides itself on being made entirely out of fake items. This includes fake flowers, faux wooden beams and realistic chandelier replicas made entirely out of styrofoam. Above all, food is designed to look entirely like something else; the most famous being barbeque chicken and rice dish presented as a slice of chocolate cake.
