Many fea­tures of Poneke betray its Mojo her­it­age, but with some not­able dif­fer­ences. For a start, the Mar­tin Bos­ley influ­ence means that there’s more emphas­is on meals, not just cof­fee and snacks. Among the high­lights are grilled sour­dough bread with roas­ted feta and grapes, and a deli­ciously light and mari­time take on pizza (smoked kahawai with capers, olives and wafer-thin potato). Then there’s the Fran­co­phile lean­ings of the counter food, with fin­an­ci­ers and mille-feuilles among the usu­al scones. Add good cof­fee, a decent drinks selec­tion, spark­ling water on tap and water­side seat­ing, and the some­what elev­ated prices might seem justified.
