• You are invited to the meal time of all meal times – brunch. Location: Cape Town’s – Atlantic Seaboard. Time – 11 o’clock!

    The Atlantic Seaboard stretches from the V&A Waterfront on the north shore of Table Mountain all the way down the west side of the Cape Peninsula to Hout Bay. It’s one of the most beautiful areas in the Cape without a doubt, as many locals can confirm.

    Whether it’s after a beautiful morning stroll along the Promenade for a warm, a comforting cup of coffee and your favourite mid morning meal or a scenic drive along the winding road leading to Hout Bay for a majestic mountain view, brunch is always a good idea when it comes to Saturday and Sunday morning plans (or weekdays if you’re living your best life).

    Brunch has become one of the most sought-after meals, especially along the Atlantic Seaboard. People arrive from near and far, waiting in lines just to experience the buzz of brunch.


    Brunch is not an exact meal time, it’s an experience. From French toast, drizzled with syrup to warm eggs benedict (my favourite), we would opt for brunch any day!

    If you looking for a top-notch brunch spot to try – with beautiful decor, delicious foods and an awesome vibe and a breath of fresh air, we have rounded up our favourite spots for you.

    This very chic restaurant opened on the 15th of September at 19 Kloof Road, Sea Point. Sonny and Irene was designed to celebrate cafe-style classics with a contemporary twist.

    Their menu opens up with the most delectable health food options of granola, fruit bowls and oatmeal. Then, it gets even more exciting with the warmer meals. I can’t wait to try their eggs benedict but I love how there are a few meals dedicated to different forms of their signature eggs.
