5 Top Delis for Stocking Up During Your Self-Catering Stay in Cape Town

One of the best benefits of staying in Cape Town self-catering accommodation is the ability to prepare your own meals. This gives you the opportunity to try out some of the wonderful home-grown or sought-after imported ingredients that the Mother City has on offer.

Here are our Top 5 Cape Town Delis for classy comfort food that will make your day/week and holiday, this winter in Cape Town.

Bread & Wine Restaurant – La Motte, Franschhoek

This upper-class eatery is one of the best-known in the Western Cape. The pizzas are legendary and the views over the lemon orchards are stunning. Visit the onsite grocer after your meal and pick up some unique preserves such as smoked red wine vinegar, chicken liver parfait and old Cape Brandy marmalade.

Giovanni’s – Green Point

Famed as the place to get the best cappuccinos in town, Giovanni’s original claim to fame was as an Italian deli. It is a delicatessen to feast your eyes on and your appetite in, and you can pick up amazing European delicacies after sipping on your cuppa.

Alternatively, settle for a sandwich made as-you-like-it from the stash of to-class charcuterie in stock.

Saucisse Deli – Woodstock

You should pop in to the Old Biscuit Mill during your Cape Town stay, so it makes sense to visit this pastel-hued hideaway while you’re there. Order your designer sandwich and they’ll even wrap up old-school in wax paper for you. Locally sourced meats and cheese, including cured sausages and bratwurst are what you can expect to find in this charming country-chic deli.

The Foodbarn Restaurant, Deli and Bakery – Noordhoek Farm Village

Wood-hewn furniture and rustic spaces hint at the all-natural eats you’ll find within the walls of the Foodbarn. Pop in for a lunch in this laid-back environment or fill your basket with freshly baked muffins, croissants, quiche and fibre-rich bread.

The V&A Food Market – Victoria & Alfred Waterfront

The V&A food market has been setting trends in artisanal food since October 2012. Dishing up street food to delight the foodies, yoghurt smoothies for the health nuts and handmade chocolates to balance out any palate this market will whet your appetite and fill your basket to the brim with foods from Europe to Asia, Africa to the Americas.
