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.
