There are many beaches in Cape Town with fine reputations, but when you arrive at Noordhoek Beach you will understand immediately why the South Peninsula is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Cape Town. Noordhoek Beach is no ordinary beach, no, it speaks of a secret place with the tones of a tropical beach – white sands, turquoise water and if you stay long enough, horses running with their manes in the wind. Now picture all of this, then feel your bare feet in the warm sands and the sun kiss your face.
Hold that though – this is exactly what is captured at a café called Slip Slops. This is a beach-themed restaurant, situated beneath the curves of the branches of old milkwood trees. It is laid back, and you will easily feel comfortable enough to kick off your slip-slops, and the best part – you are welcome to do so! Not to worry though, the restaurant’s kitchen is not so laid-back that you won’t get great food! In fact, the food really seals the deal.
For early mornings, you can start your day with breakfast, just the way you want it, with their design-your-own breakfast. For any time of the day meals, try a gourmet burger, pasta or divine pizza. And of course, what would a restaurant near the sea be without some seafood. But the main event is most definitely the steak. Of course, the relaxed setting is also perfect to bring the little ones along, and Slips Slops also caters for them – Mac and Cheese, Slider and Curly Fries and Spaghetti Bolognaise.
And to top it all off, you can enjoy the vibe while you look out over the beautiful beach of Noordhoek. You may even want to stay a little longer. As the sun’s last rays start lingering over the beach, it is only natural to try a sundowner or two. And you won’t be disappointed, with great mixes like Candyfloss Martini and Candy Apple Daiquiri.
And with sundowner in hand, good food and a beautiful sunset – you will soon realise the luxury of experiencing the restaurant’s slogan, “life is better in slip slops.”
