Fabrica Do Prego - Sea Point

Your favourite Prego Joint has just gone through a little make-over. Formerly known as Chippies Prego, the brand has now been repacked as Fabrica Do Prego. 

Inspired all things Portuguese, expect the most delicious and healthy flame-grilled pregos, free-range chickens, wholesome salads, their famous hand-cut chips and of course, the original prego sauce. 

It is nothing but YUM, YUM, YUM. They also have a fabulous mushroom veggie option. 

The Duke - Durbanville 

This artisanal coffee and gin bar is the new cool kid on the burbs' block, and has options aplenty. Known for their deliciously unique smoothie bowls stocked with 'unicorn superfoods' like blue spirulina, it's a definite haven for vegans and the health-conscious. 

Stop in for a boost.

Let's Talk Boules - Bo-Kaap

Grab a few friends and go play boules on this Bo-Kaap rooftop, situated above Harvest Cafe & Deli. This is Cape Town's twist on France's favourite past time, and it's best enjoyed al fresco.

You can also hire the venue for a birthday, special event or some team building!

Coco Safar - Sea Point

Time to add some fancy to your life at this luxury cafe. The word “Coco” is synonymous with luxury and “Safar” means journey in many languages. Expect couture coffee and divine pastries. 

Pilcrow & Cleaver

It's a space that evokes warmth with its autumn tones, wood finishes and open-plan kitchen space. Watch the chef at the helm, Judi Fourie, as she lovingly prepares your meal. She’ll also serve you it directly from the pass, as here, there are no waiters and subsequently, no tipping. 

Euro-fusion flavours fill the air from early morning till late at night, as Pilcrow and Cleaver is open all day. All meals. And it is for all occasions.
