Pete and I enjoy having breakfast out over weekends. Mauritius however is not entirely geared for what we are accustomed to when it comes to bacon and eggs plus most eateries only open at 10h00. We would be ready to gnaw our own arms off by that time of the morning.
We were lucky enough to find the quaint and quiet Blue Lagoon Cafe which is open from about o7h30 – 08h00 in the mornings. Perfect. It has a beautiful view of the yachts floating about on the aqua waters in the bay and the tables are spacious and prettily decorated. Spacious, comfortable tables are extremely rare at coffee bars.
They make all of their own pastries on site, which are hard to beat and take orders for every occasion from croissants, chocolate breads and loads of other filled pastries to the most elaborate cakes and savouries including canapés and devilled eggs.
On our first visit, we were greeted by the friendly Moënzo who made us feel like we the world’s most important patrons! He served us magnificent coffee and a lovely breakfast with all the trimmings – just the way we like it. It is the small things that we appreciate, so when are served the occasional fruit platter on the side, we feel very special.
Moënzo and all the other staff are always friendly and wear such addictive smiles and are accustomed to our usual order.
On occasion when we are going for a morning on the beach, we first stop in at Blue Lagoon Cafe for a couple of croissant and café au lait. Lovely.
I wouldn’t mind at all having to sit there right now enjoying a leisurely breakfast! Life is just too chaotic at the moment. A little bit of time out at Blue Lagoon Cafe would be perfect! Thank you so much for all your support and encouragement over the last little while. The Indaba went off so well. Would have been even better with you there! Hugs xx
Why not take a few days off and pop over for a quick visit – purely for Rest and Recuperation purposes of course. 😉 I really hope to be able to join in all the fun at next years Indaba. xo
A wonderful spot by the sounds of things, and you’re right a smile goes a long way!
Beautiful relaxing views.
We are going to miss our breakfasts at this lovely venue when we return home later this year.
Oooh, it looks lovely!
Wanna join us for a breakie?
so nice to have a breakfast place you can enjoy both food and views at 🙂
You are more than welcome to join us. 🙂
That view looks like something out of my dreams in paradise. I can’t imagine being surrounded by such beauty! And topped off with great service and food. Ahhh….dreaming…absolutely beautiful.
And best of all, because we are usually so early, we have the place all to ourselves. 🙂
Isn’t that nice when a waiter knows your order and you dont have to tell them anymore. Those are small gestures that make you feel special!
Absolutely Raymund. We look forward to our Saturday morning breakfast. 🙂
What a splendid spot to have breakfast! I envy you both! Having coffee watching the sea is priceless… I remember last summer when Mario, Lapo and I where in Cote d’Azur and had breakfast one morning in café facing yachts and boats, just like the Blue Lagoon Café. We were so close to the water… I thought then it was the most lovely breakfast of our life! I didn’t want to leave…
We are going to have to search very hard when we go back home to find somewhere to have breakfast with such beautiful views as The Blue Lagoon Café. I’m sure you took lots of photographs when you were in Cote d’Azur so you can always revisit your holiday’s memories. 🙂
Wow Mandy., I’d be there in a heartbeat to join you & Pete for an awesome breakfast/brunch like that, I adore the view, it must be just the nicest way to start your day.
Hi Anna – it would be wonderful to share a morning with you at our little “local”. 🙂 We were there this morning and were lucky enough to be treated to a “tasting” of one of Moënzo’s new creations – a banana, coconut and almond tart – it was super yummy.
Wish we had such a place here! Everything looks perfect!
Hi Zerrin, thanks for stopping by. I must say, it is one of the little highlights to our weekends. 🙂
Isn’t it a treat to find somewhere special for a weekend breakfast? And open at a timely hour – I think I’d be eating my body parts too by 10am! 🙂
Glad to know we aren’t the only early birds. 🙂
the view is breathtaking and those sweet pastry look so addictive.
I love when we eat out and the waiter makes you feel like you’re the most important person on Earth, it’s the little things 🙂
hope you’re having a wonderful Sunday
It’s always wonderful when they remember your name and genuinely ask how you are. 🙂
I have to agree with you by 10 o’clock I would’ve been ready to gnaw someone’s arm how could anyone serve breakfast that late I guess it really is a laid-back island. Your breakfast did look very good though and the pictures are beautiful thank you so much for sharing them with us.
Chef, you don’t want to know how laid back this island is – Pete and I find it extremely frustrating at times, but the good breakfast makes up for it sometimes. 🙂
10am is lunch time around here! Early openers are a must, and what a beautiful looking place to be munching on breakfast and looking out over the water. I hope you find somewhere just as beautiful when you leave.
Hi Brydie, I am sure Pete will be able to sniff out a good place for us – he seems to have a knack for it. 😉
That view is breath taking! What a perfect spot for amazing breakfast 🙂
It is Tes, just perfect for a relaxed weekend breakfast. 😉
