A trendy new lunch spot in Braam by Food Lover’s Market

May 31, 2019, Author: Hello Joburg

Hello Joburgers, Food Lover’s Market has expanded its hugely popular Eatery stores in Gauteng with the launch of Food Lover’s Eatery in Braamfontein’s Business Improvement District (BID) on Thursday, 16 May 2019. The store opened to a very positive response from the local business community and the University of Witswatersrand students. The newest addition to the Eatery division saw 4000 customers on opening day, with a queue leading out of the store for most of the day.

With a strong focus on convenience, these chic Eatery stores are dedicated to offering only the freshest meals, made on site daily.  There are currently five other Food Lover’s Eateries in the Cape Town CBD, Rivonia and Rosebank respectively – satisfying the needs of approximately 3000 shoppers per store, per day.


Says Brian Coppin, CEO of the Food Lover’s Market Group, “The key focus on convenience guarantees that a consumer is able to visit the store every day for a full year and enjoy a different meal everyday without any repetition. All meals are made on site daily, with an emphasis on the highest quality and freshness – and no food is carried over to the next day.”

“You will see as you walk around the Braamfontein store, Food Lover’s Eatery boasts a wide variety of affordable contemporary dishes and convenience meal options – In short, a hot-food emporium with a distinct New York deli feel.”


While Food Lover’s Eatery offers delicious traditional lunch options such as burgers, prego rolls, chicken, schwarmas, paninis and focaccias – it excels in its array of salads, wraps, sushi and fresh juices. A new addition is the “Pap”arazzi station that promises to delight the homegrown palette with traditional pap and a selection of toppings such as beef, boerewors, chicken and stampmielies and beans. Following international trends, the Food Lover’s Eatery also offers a build-your-own Poke Bar and a Fresh Society department where you can customise your fresh juice order. They are also constantly updating the salad menus to include healthy on-trend ingredients such as quinoa and whole grains.


Other delicious food options include: 

A pasta bar and a pizza bar, offering a little taste of Italy at an affordable price

A sushi belt with fresh sushi, made in store daily by the Food Lover’s Eatery sushi chefs

Bubs Fish ’n Chips – the crispy fish and chips have become a huge hit in all Eatery stores

Burritos for a little Mexican flavour

Health & Happiness offers healthy nibbles for those wanting to snack responsibly

An artisan bakery that bakes fresh doughnuts, breads, muffins, tarts and more in store daily

A tasty tender chicken – a trusted favourite, grab a juicy piece of chicken with chips

“We are certain that Food Lover’s Eatery Braamfontein – from the overwhelming positive response to the opening – will become the ‘go to’ choice for lunch. The exceptional quality and variety is unrivalled and I have no doubt that once you have seen what we have in store, it will become obvious that the store will become a regular lunch destination for local businesses, Wits students and local Braams residents.”

The variety is incredible and make for an easy lunch, or a grab-and-go dinner solution. Of course, no Food Lover’s Eatery is complete without a Seattle Coffee Lounge – located right below the new store and open to trade on Wednesday, 22 May.

Food Lover’s Eatery can be found in the Cape Town CBD, in Gauteng at The MARC in Sandton, the Rosebank Link and the newly opened Braamfontein store located at 19 Ameshof Street.

      It's a beautiful space and the doughnuts are TDF! The poke bar is also amazing - all the ingredients are super-fresh and the bowls are very affordable :)
