If you’re heading to self-catering accommodation in Cape Town for the Cape Town Cycle Tour next year, the word Suikerbossie may engender feelings of fear in your heart and lead in your legs. It’s the site of the final climb in this enigmatic race and comes just 15km before the finish line.
This steep climb has far more pleasant associations for the locals who line the route for the final stretch and also frequent a popular restaurant by the same name which is found along the way.
A Hout Bay Treasure
Suikerbossie is one of Cape Town’s most iconic eateries and has been pulling the crowds since 1990 with its personalised service, stunning views over Hout Bay and family-friendly feasts.
The latest hit for this long-standing gathering place is the Sunday Summer Sessions which are on the go from 24 November this year until 6 January 2019, including a live performance by Arno Carstens on 23 December.
These popular music fests are just the thing to kick start your week in the Mother City with live beats, awesome eats and views that go on forever. The show starts at 4pm and you can warm up with half price cocktails for the first hour.
Sublime Sundays at Suikerbossie
Every Sunday is a special day at Suikerbossie where hearty lunch and breakfast buffets draw the crowds.
For breakfast, you can look forward to a spread of fresh fruit and juices, eggs to order, bacon, sausages, beans, roast potatoes, fried tomatoes and mushrooms with toast on the side.
Lunch is a smorgasbord of roast meats including beef fillet, chicken, pork belly and gammon, with salads, roast potatoes, six varieties of veggies, Yorkshire puddings and gravy. Desserts include classics such as lemon meringue, malva pudding, chocolate eclairs, chocolate mousse, tiramisu and apple phyllo tarts.
