Brunch Diaries: Bread & Wine

Because Jesus turned water into wine.

This weekend, post-church munchies had us heading to the newly opened KWAE to try out their breakfast menu. But your babes obviously missed out on the keyword “soft opening.” Basically, they were closed, so we carried our munchies elsewhere: Bread and Wine.

Ash: I had never been to Bread & Wine, don’t judge me I’m an Accra newbie, so I was so confused when we arrived. Bread & Wine is actually hidden: No sign boards saying you’ve arrived, you basically enter someone’s house and you are there. Truthfully, If you are not very specifically directed there, you will have no idea it even exists. It’s not about to be one of those restaurants you randomly drive past and decide to try.

Dede: Now Ash is telling us she is foreign *side eye*. I like the lowkeyness of Bread and Wine, it’s a hidden gem in Osu. It’s on the same road as the old Chicken Licken (I miss Chicken Licken) and La Villa Boutique. It has a ruby red big gate but if my sketchy directions don’t get you there just put it in Google Maps. It actually works!

When you walk in you are greeted by a pool, hedged off from the restaurant but it’s the first thing you see on arrival. Not sure we understand the general feel Bread & Wine is going for, the entire restaurant just seems to have a variety themes running throughout the premises. You walk in to meet the pool, then onto the patio with outside seating that is just very casual and then you walk inside and you’re in an upscale café/bistro type location. WHAT! But maybe that’s what they were going for - indecisiveness. To be fair, it’s your grandma’s family house turned upscale bistro.  

Dede: I like the theme actually. I like the fact that it has a homey feel to it and that it caters to those who like to brunch in bikinis, brunch on the patio or brunch in their 3 piece suit. I just wish the pool had more hedges around it so you could have private events there without everyone walking in and peeping you in your bikini.

Ash: Confused by the entire exterior,I opted to sit inside. Bread & Wine sounded so classy and bougie to my mind. I was legit kinda confused when we walked in, but then the inside met my every expectation so all in all I was happy.

We didn’t waste too much time; we dove straight into our food orders.

Ash: I ordered the banana pancakes and a side of sausages and I was sad. The presentation was great but I saw Dede’s food and immediately knew I had taken the L on this one. Her order looked so moist and just so yummy.

Dede: My food was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I think I may have that midas touch when it comes to ordering. I ordered the banana and nutella french toast and a side of sausage. Honestly, that’s all I order when I go to Bread and Wine but for you guys I’ll switch it up. The french toast like Ash said was so moist and yumma. The flavors just bounced off each other. I mean, it’s like Nutella and Banana came together and had a baby, do you expect less?

Ash: Her plate really was just a fresh serving of that bouncy baby boy, with the smooth buttocks of nutella and banana. My plate, on the other hand, had to be the grumpy older brother. They were hard and didn’t really feel like pancakes. You know how pancakes should have like a fluff to them, this just didn’t have that. The error was made in the batter, the mix had to be off, there was no lightness to the pancake. Felt like I was eating pastry. The sausages, on the other hand, were heaven. They were the perfect kind of burnt I like on my sausages and they were like English fat chubby looking sausages, not the sad lanky frankfurters many Ghanaian restaurants like to pass off as sausages.

The customer service, however, was forgettable. I don’t remember anything about the lady/gentleman who served us. He/she was that forgettable: I can’t remember if it was a he or she. The manager on the other hand was perfect, he came around and asked if were pleased with our meal.

Ash: Of course I complained about the hard-ass pancakes. But manager extraordinaire gave us macaroons for the pain.

Dede : Ash, a waitress served us. The customer service was okay. The waitress helped us move seats so we could take pictures without being judged. I used to lowkey judge people who spent a good five minutes taking a picture of their food for ALL their social networks. Look at me now. The manager was very hands on and he definitely gets a 10/10 for customer service and customer satisfaction. Like Ash said, we got free macaroons for her poor dish. Even though, I finished all of mine, cause we never ever ever waste dessert, I don’t get the hype about macaroons. Is it an acquired taste? Do I need an elevated palate? Is it a bougie dessert? Help me out here guys!

The bill was quite a shock. Bread and wine is not an everyday brunch spot for the funemployed team. Our total bill came up to about GHS140, including service charge and tourism levy. So my huns, don’t go to bread and wine on a tight budget or you’ll wash plates.

All in all, Bread and Wine gets a check for Brunch spot.

PS. We didn’t order drinks because the juice is a whopping Ghs20. Are the fruits grown in an air conditioned environment? Ain’t nobody got time for that.
