Food and Wine
From food markets to restaurants to wine tours, Cape Town has it all. Check out our top five food and wine experiences here.
Cape Town is a foodie’s delight, with influences from every corner of the globe served up in restaurants and cafés across the city, in among traditional South African favourites.
South African wines are a feature on wine lists across the globe, and those from the vast and beautiful Cape Winelands are the best-known among them.
Food and wine events take place across the metropole, and play an important role in cultivating culinary Cape Town – not only to foodie locals, but also to visiting friends from afar – and have aided in shaping a space on the global food map for the Western Cape.
The concepts of community, decreasing our carbon footprint and awareness of the distance from farm to fork have resulted in the emergence of a robust food-market subculture in Cape Town.
Cape Town has a big coffee shop culture. Some spots are quaintly old-fashioned and others hip and happening – either way, they’re perfect for people-watching!
