Top 10 Brunch Spots in Cape Town

Few things beat a good brunch, and Cape Town has hundreds of options.

A great brunch is simply sublime, and some places come out on top. They’re the ones that serve breakfast food a little later in the morning, so you can saunter in after a sleep-in, a hike, or a morning dip in the ocean. Where the coffee is delicious, and the food will fill you with all the warmth and satisfaction you need to make it home for a post-brunch nap.

These places evoke feelings of comfort and contentment, and they leave you longing for the next lazy weekend brunch.

Here we round up some of the top brunch spots in Cape Town.


Starlings is one of those places you kind of have to be a local to know about (until now). It’s got no signpost and it’s hidden behind a large hedge on an unassuming street. They don’t take bookings, so you’d do well to get there early and grab a table in the garden, in the dappled light from the trees overhead. The food is spectacular—the eggs Benedict is among the best in town, topped with silky hollandaise.
