Tamboers Winkel is situated just off Kloof Street in Gardens, at 3 De Lorentz Street. Although this little gem is tucked away, it's well worth a visit when you're in the area. It's open from 8am to 10pm daily and as its name implies, it was originally a deli, but has evolved to become a popular eatery/deli. However, patrons still pop in to buy free-range chicken and eggs, baked goods and a beautiful, every changing selection of wine.
The interior is welcoming and comfortable and reminds one of yesteryear with the wooden tables and chairs as well as the high ceilings and open shelves displaying a delectable selection of jams, wines and oils/salad dressings for sale. The kitchen is open plan so you can see your food being prepared while you wait, but it's never a long wait and the food is always excellent.
The menu is not printed, but will be displayed on the chalkboard and each week there are new Specials, which change with the seasons or the availability of fresh ingredients. Breakfast is a popular time of day and if you're a big breakfast eater, the portion size won't disappoint.
Additionally the meal is light on the pocket so order the eggs and bacon or French toast accompanied by strawberries. If you pop in later in the day you'll be spoilt for choice and can order a fresh salad, a platter of cold meat and cheeses, a healthy sandwich or wrap or alternatively a pie of your choice. If you don't fancy any of that there are usually four chicken dishes available so you can take your pick.
There is no need for a winelist as the walls are covered with bottles of various great wines so patrons can order a bottle or a glass to accompany their meal. Enquire about the popular weekly wine tasting which features on a Wednesday night and is open to everyone at no cost, as long as a meal or platter is ordered from the deli.
