YOURS TRULYYOURS TRULY

To Drink

Yours Truly

Small but perfectly formed, Yours Truly does design-your-own sandwiches, pizzas, as well as super smooth lattes. There are bicycles on the walls, magazines to read and easy-listening music – what more could you want?

The Kitchen

If it’s good enough for Michelle Obama, it’s good enough for us. The Kitchen feels just like a home in the Deep South of the United States; purchase a plate and top it up with as much fresh salad as you like, or build your own sandwich. Perfect for people watching too.

The Superette

In the heart of the Woodstock Exchange, Superette is your go-to place for Middle-Eastern inspired salads, fresh juices and almond cake. The crowd is made up mainly of artists, designers and illustrators who are grabbing a quick bite on their lunch breaks.

Skinny Legs & All

Owned by 21-year old twins (at the time this guide was published), this café is far from a fashion faux-pas. The freshly-ground coffee is worth crossing town for, and it’s a regular hangout for Cape Town’s uber-trendies.

The Waiting Room

This feels like someone’s home, complete with comfy armchairs and wall hangings, and a great rooftop for summer evenings. Look for an unmarked door and climb the winding stairs to unearth this cosy bar.

Merchants Shebeen

This recently-opened dive bar on Long Street does great cocktails – it opens at 5PM and stays open until 2AM, so you can come after dinner and sip mojitos until late.

Orphanage

Cocktails are serious business at Orphanage. The dark, moody vibe of the place is complemented by the wicked drinks menu. Try the ‘Brimstone & Fire’ with rum, citrus, cloves, caramel syrup and quite literally, flames.

The Power and Glory

This saloon-style bar is great both day and night; they serve local beers and homemade cake. Arrive in the afternoon, stay until the wee hours and enjoy the wonderful selection of music.
