Burger and Lobster
Anyone for a lobster roll? This unique way to dine on luxury cuisine is all the rage at this happening venue. It’s a pared down paradise for seafood lovers. Munch your way through a brioche with a filling of West Coast Lobster, chomp on a beef burger with maple bacon and cheese or splurge on a whole lobster.

That’s all there is to the menu, apart from the two-page list of Cape Town’s most more-ish cocktails

Jason Bakery
Head for the hatch at Jason Bakery (now open in Green Point too) and stock up on coffee to go with a side of Nutella, Earl Grey or Lavender Honey Doughssant. Alternatively, take a window seat overlooking the street-side action and snack on bacon croissants, brownies and fresh-baked cookies.

Mother’s Ruin Gin Bar
On the subject of drinks, over 70 varieties of gin are up for tasting in the main bar, private downstairs vault or garden area. More enthusiasts join the gin craze every day in Cape Town, which accounts for the buzz around this Bree Street Bar.

Named for its location on the corner of Orphan Street, Orphanage is another cocktail haven for the sunset crowd. A pioneer of the art of mixology, this upmarket tapas bar is known for its decadent food served on sharing platters.

Merry Pop Ins
A bargain hunter’s dream, Merry Pop Ins is filled to the rafters with great quality used clothing, toys, books, DVDs and furniture for kids. The chance of happening on a designer item amongst these reasonably priced goods draws droves of treasure hunters to its doors every day.

Bring your goods to trade-in, if they don’t make the grade they will be donated to charity on your behalf.
