List of Best Brunch Spots in Cape Town
Starling Café –Claremont
Situated within the hub of Claremont, this quaint and quirky restaurant offers a variety of brunch options with fresh and locally sourced produce highlighted in each menu item.
It has a wonderfully ‘secret garden’ feel to it as this little gem is almost hidden from the main road behind a large green hedge. Once you walk through the door however, you are transported into an oasis of greenery and delightful décor.
For something a little out of the ordinary, we recommend trying their curried mince with poached eggs and toast, or perhaps the ever-popular French toast served with either bacon, banana and cinnamon syrup or with berry compote, crème fraiche and lemon curd.
The unique and refreshing approach to their interior design is definitely another highlight. From bathrooms filled with the ever-changing multitudinous vases of fresh
flower bouquets to walls of mismatched pictures and Polaroid snaps, it is a feast for both the eyes and the stomach.
