Jerry’s Café is an unpretentious eatery in Benoni which serves coffee and cake, breakfasts and light lunches. It offers friendly service, an uncomplicated menu and an overall what-you-see-is-what-you-get kind of atmosphere.
The interior of the restaurant is decidedly unpretentious with a double volume ceiling and plenty of natural light. There are both indoor and outdoor eating areas available, and on a warm sunny day there is little better than sunning yourself at one of the wicker suites or sitting at a table under the shade of an umbrella.
Inside, the décor is simple, with white tiles white walls, apart from a few accent walls which, in complete contrast, burst with colour – orange on some and lime green on others. There are a few ‘matching’ paintings on the walls too, and the wait staff wear t-shirts in orange and lime green too.
Like the space, Jerry’s Café has a simple menu which is not trying to distract anyone with its bells and whistles. Breakfasts on offer include omelettes and egg scrambles, fruits and set dishes like the breakfast stacker – hash browns, ham, grilled tomato, poached egg and a cheese griller served with a mushroom sauce. You can also ‘build’ your own brekkie from the ingredients available.
Lunch options include the usual fare – quiches, snackwiches, gourmet sandwiches and wraps, as well as burgers, salads and quiche.
