TODAY'S RECOMMENDATION

Hard Pressed Café

Coffee. Food. Vinyl. A small bird told us recently of a new set-up called the Hard Pressed Café, which, wait for it, sells vinyls and can be washed down with a best cup of hot brew... and equally delicious food! Tucked in to the bottom corner of town, the Hard Pressed Café is set to be one of Cape Town's new trendy hot spots - be sure to be one of the first to sample its charms!

Knead

South Africa

Not being one to fall in love with any multi-venue restaurants, Knead Bakery might in fact be the only exception to this rule. Established in 2006, Knead offers a fantastic café-boulangerie-type experience. Read on…

The Tap Room

Cape Town

The craft beer capital of South Africa is arguably Cape Town. With a plethora of options depending on taste, weather or situation, there is a beer out there for everyone. Read on…

Gaaitjie

Paternoster

Is it just us, or are the best restaurants always in the smallest little towns, or in this case village? Paternoster already lays claim to another of my all-time favourites, and it is a pleasure to add another to the list - Gaaitjie. Read on…
