This is a just a quick overview over our favourite places where we regularly go to.

Just the ones we would recommend to good friends! :-)

 

BREAKFAST & ALLDAY EATERIES:

HEMELHUIJS: Have breakfast at a little oasis! As they write on their own website Hemelhuijs “offers an ideal escapism from the hustle and bustle”. Enjoy the amazing food in this relaxed atmosphere and get some inspiration from the always lovely arranged flower and green plants. www.hemelhuijs.co.za, 71 Waterkant Street, Cape Town.

GIULIO’S: Another oasis of peace in the middle of the vibrant city center. Indulge in amazing breakfast options and enjoy a bit of Italian “dolce vita” in this true gem! www.giulios.co.za, Cornerstone House, 16 Loop Street, Cape Town

LOADING BAY: What a cool place. And for sure one of the beste breakfasts in town! They call themselves a “multidimensional space” – as beside the allay eatery they also offer ethically and conscious selected menswear and Aēsop Skin care products. www.loadingbay.co.za, Shop 30, 30 Hudson St, De Waterkant, Cape Town

YO GOODNESS: If you are into plant based conscious nutrition like we are then you will like this place just some minutes away from our house! Healthy and lecker breakfast, lunch and coffee! www.yogoodness.co.za, Marine Circle, Table View, Cape Town

HOMESPUN: This is exactly what Table View has been missing for a very long time! Matt has created a really exceptional culinary experience.
