Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront is the place to be for shopping, entertainment, and soaking up sun. Start your day on a bright note with a leisurely brunch. Relax by a bright window or on sunny patio seating, where you can enjoy views of Table Mountain and the Harbour, catch up with friends, and indulge in some seriously great food. Check out our list of the top places for brunch on the Waterfront.
At Chef’s Warehouse, brunch is not simply a meal, it’s an event. The menu changes daily, even hourly at times depending on available ingredients, and has that unmistakable French je ne sais quoi. Think confit de canard (slow roasted duck), potatoes fried to perfection in duck fat, innovative tapas and Asian-style oysters. That’s not even mentioning the coffee, which is reputably one of the best brews you’ll find in the whole city. Prepare to be pampered by the attentive, professional servers, and treat yourself to what may be the best brunch in Cape Town.

Every weekend, Café Manhattan offers New York industrial chic against a seaside backdrop from sunrise to sundown. But there’s more than ultra-hip atmosphere here. If you want an honest, hearty brunch to fuel a full day of sightseeing and shopping (or to help you bounce back from a night of hard partying), this is the place. Their luxurious takes on traditional eggs with toast and outrageously tasty omelettes are sure to start your day off right, and while the venue may be cool, the service is always warm and friendly.
