Why did the bubblegum cross the road? Because it was stuck to the chicken’s foot. But where was the chicken going? Well the chickens in Stellenbosch head to Café Lafayette with a chicken friend to be stuffed with camembert and wrapped in bacon and drenched in a creamy whole grain mustard sauce for R75. As mouthwatering as this sounds, its really the thought of being served up with seasonal vegetables and potatoes that get the chicken breasts every time.
Café Lafayette knows how to treat a chicken breast. This relaxed and cosy establishment has become a well-known stop in Stellenbosch for a bite to eat and a real kuier. Enjoy their chicken supreme while catching up with friends and cracking a few jokes. A popular place for wine hosting events the warm interior is the ideal place for a winter meal.
The fire place is definitely the centre point of the restaurant and has been the driving force behind a lot of wooing and sweet nothing whisperings. Mostly sweet nothings whispered between the diner and the food though, especially when it comes to the Chicken Supreme. A combination of all the moreish things in life, Café Lafayette’s Chicken supreme is made with locally sourced ingredients straight from Stellenbosch and surrounds. Although it may be hard to take your eyes off the delicious meal in front of you, please remember the person you’re sharing this Groupon with.
If it’s a date, its suggested you book a table near the fireplace, perfect for you, your chicken and your date.
Chicken fact: The chicken dance was invented by Paul Cospello who after being so inspired by a plate of Chicken Supreme during his tour of Italy decided to get up and move around the restaurant imitating the delicious feathered foul. He was asked to leave the restaurant soon afterwards as doing the chicken dance in Italy is a sign that you have lost your mind.
