Oasis of calmness

Situated in Klein Windhoek’s Garden Inspirations Nursery, Trixi’s Coffee Shop is in Hebenstreitstrasse, opposite Jenny’s Place.  
So you can envision a very tranquil and relaxing atmosphere, surrounded by plenty of plants and flowers. It is a beautiful, small-looking yet spacious spot for whomever desires a few moments of deep, undisturbed reverie in an appealing otherwise business-meeting favourite.
The outdoor seating area is spacious and calm, with water misters placed everywhere. It is completely shaded, making it perfect for summer but not so for the rainy season!
Without a doubt, patrons consider it the most decent, affordable breakfast eatery in the capital, with an exceptional, friendly customer care.
The breakfast menu offers a ‘Healthy Hob’; a meal made out of muesli, plain yoghurt and a portion of honey.
Other breakfast dishes feature in the menu too, such as the ‘poetic pan’, comprising two eggs, strips of bacon, mini-steak, boerewors, mushrooms and a ‘Pixie’s Rainbow’ - a slice of open toast, topped with mushrooms, tomatoes, eggs, bacon and cheese.
The restaurant’s menu also offers light lunches, such as ‘chicken schnitzels’, ‘Russian fairy’ and ‘Pixie’s Cordon Bleu’. Its pancakes are to-die-for, especially with the different fillings. And then there’s panini; a thick bread you can down with a filling of your choice.
Lunch specials here are alternated every second day. Thus, on the day I visited it, a ‘crumbed pork chop with veggies and mash’ dish for only N$85 and ‘hake fillet with salad’ for N$65 were on special.
I chose to eat the ‘hake fillet with salad’ and did not regret my choice, especially with the load of healthy treat. You know what they say about restaurant food choices; they’re the ones you not only live with but are forced to eat too.
The fresh garden salad served with a homemade salad dressing, which added a smooth texture was memorable, truly. I guess I’m getting wiser at my choices with each restaurant visit, I beamed to myself.
Added to the green salad were peach slices. That was new for me, yet devour it with pleasure.
With my meal, I had my signature drink; Rock Shandy. However, it was a bit disappointing to remember, at that point in time, Spur’s version of a Rock Shandy presentation is way better. This was not as strong and chilled as it is usually meant to be served. But oh well, I had made the choice.
Besides my picky one-sided thoughts, Trixi’s Coffee Shop is an away-from-the-city-hustle-and-bustle spot you would want to enjoy an afternoon at with your family.
