Having a big protein-filled breakfast from the Swedish slash African inspired Wild Moose Cafe is essential if you’re looking to start your day out the right way. While there are a range of wholesome selections available on their all day breakfast menu, there’s really no looking past the big Jungle Brekki; with two pieces of Boerewors, two eggs, two crispy bacon strips, juicy mushrooms, grilled tomato, baked beans and a hash brown (or chips) served on toasted sourdough. This ripper breakfast is enough to feed a whole family but for us meat lovers it’s the perfect amount. Be sure to order an aromatic coffee or fresh fruit juice as well if you want to get the most out of your Wild Moose Cafe experience.
