About Glenda’s Restaurant
Glenda’s focus is on seasonal flavours with a constantly changing menu. We have planted a nursery in our courtyard where herbs and salad leaves are plucked for the dishes.
We cater for all occasions, serving breakfast, brunch, lunch & dinner. Think deviled eggs, artichoke gratin or duck and waffle served with a sprinkling of edible flowers.
A marbled bar is open for after-work drinks. Don’t forget to try the Pink Tiki or Clockwork Orange or relax in the Choux Choux lounge with a glass of Champagne or Prosecco.
‘Dotty Choux’ is our takeaway patisserie counter that specialises in choux pastries of colours and flavours. Our sensational cakes can be made to order. Try the salted caramel popcorn cake – it is to die for!
Glenda’s brings sophistication and elegance to this sunny spot nestled in Hyde Square, Johannesburg. We hope to create a haven where people can savour every freshly made meal and leave feeling like they have to come back again and soon.
About Glenda Lederle
After creating and nurturing the beloved Patisserie in Johannesburg’s Illovo for 10 years, Glenda Lederle sold in 2002 and moved to start up the infinitely popular, Katerina’s restaurant at Kurland Estate outside of Plettenberg Bay.
It was at the Patisserie that Glenda became renowned for her beautifully presented pastries and cakes however not many people know that in 2013 & 2014, Glenda decided to travel the world. She trained in some of Europe & America’s top kitchens from ‘The Red Rooster’ in New York City, to the acclaimed ‘Petersham Nursery’ & world famous ‘River Café’ in London to Four Seasons Michelin starred restaurant in Berlin.
Having returned home in May 2015 to seek out a new spot for her restaurant, Glenda bided her time until the right location presented itself. Glenda’s in Hyde Square is now open for breakfast, lunch, tea, after work drinks and dinner. There is also a ‘choux choux’ lounge for quaffing champagne and ‘Dotty Choux’ the takeaway patisserie counter specialising in Choux Pastry.
