Dessie’s

Dessie Gourmet Burger

Although having been around for some time, Dessie’s has continued to evolve; delighting the senses and giving the patrons of Port Elizabeth something really special every time they visit. The  secret to their success is, undoubtedly, the fresh flavours, the enormous variety on the menu, the distinctly healthy options available and the setting in which diners are made to feel comfortable, serene and a little pampered.

 

The first Dessie’s was established at the Bloomingdales Centre between ninth and tenth avenues, Walmer. A bubbling water feature, lush garden and open, airy restaurant area makes this an irresistible spot for a languorous breakfast, business lunch or a glass of wine with old friends. The service is efficient and friendly, which always makes coming here that much more enjoyable. This restaurant is large and vibrant, but retains an elegant charm with old-fashioned features.

Urban Espress Coffee Co. in Port Elizabeth

Urban Express

The success of Port Elizabeth deli and coffee shop, Urban Espress Coffee Co., lies in its combining awesome food with excellent service, while keeping the entire mix very simple and down-to-earth. Situated in the new centre on the corner of Villiers Road and 6th Avenue, Walmer, Urban Espress is central, making it an easy place to pop in, have a delicious cappuccino or Americano (for only R15 and R10 respectively) and then be on your way.

 

What makes Urban Espress particularly interesting is that its savoury menu consists solely of gourmet sandwiches. These are made using the freshest ingredients and breads, and come in a couple of variations. Although the menu is small, there is definitely something for everyone and all sandwiches (made on ciabatta or rye) are only R30, despite being ample portions. Read more
