Three places to brunch in Cape Town this weekend

You might think that this trend is reserved for cool and stylish New Yorkers. But, in fact, Cape Town has a huge variety of delicious brunch menus and buffets that could rival the biggest and best international food capitals. 


If you’ve always dreamt of brunching New-York style (but can't afford to pay for a flight to the Big Apple) then this stylish “New American” eatery will transport you straight to Manhattan. Think cheddar-chive biscuits (the US version of scones) and gravy, pork belly hash, jalapeno cheddar grits, or chicken and waffles. If you have a sweet tooth, do try the caramelised banana french toast or the birthday cake pancake stack. For drinks, try the grapefruit mimosas or spicy Bloody Mary’s. You’ll find Mulberry & Prince in the city centre on Pepper Street. The restaurant is open strictly for brunch on Sundays from 10 AM to 2 PM.

One of Luke Dale Roberts’ award-winning restaurants, The Pot Luck Club’s Sunday Brunch experience pays tribute to the top chef’s days in Singapore. Located on the top floor of the Silo of the Old Biscuit Mill, you’ll be treated to beautiful views and even better food. It offers one of the most popular Sunday brunch choices in the city, so you’ll want to be sure to book early. The set menu made up of platters ensuring each guest can try every dish on offer costs R450 per person or R250 extra for bottomless (and they really do mean bottomless) bubbles.

This Sea Point institution is famous for its Sunday Jazz Brunch, taking place every week from 11 AM to 2 PM.  They are so confident in their brunch offering, in fact, that they dare say it is “one of the best brunch experiences in Cape Town”.  And it is certainly highly rated by locals and jazz aficionados. Listen to a live jazz band while enjoying bubbles on arrival, feasting on a wide variety of culinary delicacies (pastries, cheeses, traditional breakfasts, sushi, salads, desserts, and more), and poring over a complimentary newspaper.
