Cape Town

And a few of my favourite things . . .

I spent a few days in Cape Town last week - a fleeting visit so not really enough time to visit all that the city has to offer, but thought I would share a few of the places I tend to beat a path to.


1. Haas Coffee Collective: http://haascollective.com/
my favourite coffee shop plus a great gallery for a little visual stimulation while enjoying your caffeine intake.

2. Bree Street : worth finding a sought after parking spot here and walking!
Part of the First Thursdays initiative: http://www.first-thursdays.co.za/

3. Sarah Ord Interiors: http://www.sarahord.com/ 
for an eclectic burst of colour - it certainly brightened up my {rainy} day!

4. Neighbourgoods Market: http://www.neighbourgoodsmarket.co.za/cape-town 
 If your visit falls over a weekend pop across to the Old Biscuit Mill in woodstock
food glorious food - that's all there is to say!

5. Robert Sherwood Design: http://www.robertsherwooddesign.com/
back to Bree Street for this showroom - a beautifully curated collection of art and interior objets.

6. The Sushi Box: http://www.sushiboxsa.com/ 
out of the city and into the suburbs, a lovely tucked away spot and of course great sushi

7. Cassis: http://www.cassis.co.za/
a patisserie with 4 outlets in cape town so no excuse for not trying their macarons!

8. Cinema Nouveau: https://www.facebook.com/CinemaNouveau
have a quick look around the waterfront then see whats showing here - I managed (at long last!) to see The Grand Budapest Hotel although I think I might need to watch it again.

any other suggestions and additions?
