Africa’s largest gathering can be thirsty (and hungry) work, so it’s best to be prepared when it comes to where you’re going to chill and grab a bite to eat.
Cape Town has a myriad of options when it comes to breakfast and brunch spots.
What first started as a baking entrepreneurship venture has grown into a Cape Town firm favourite in Cape Town.
This brother and sister team have perfected the simple art of pastry and a good cup of coffee.
There are two bakeries, the Bree Street location is always buzzing as it’s the original Jason Bakery and they also have a bakery in Green Point.
There are more options than just croissants and doughnuts though, try the Bircher Muesli, which is rolled oats, soaked overnight in apple and lemon juice or the Flap Jack Stack if you need a breakfast boost.
Address: 185 Bree St, Cape Town City Centre and 83 Main Road, Green Point

Opening Times: Monday - Friday 7 am and Saturdays at 8 am.
The Yard at Silo
The Silo district on the outskirts of the V&A Waterfront is a new edition to the Cape Town lifestyle scene.
It’s here that you will find The Yard at Silo which is a great retreat away from the hustle and bustle of the inner city.
For breakfast and brunch you’ll find all the firm favourites on the menu, but what makes The Yard special is that it has an Indian breakfast menu.
You can choose to have Aloo Parantha, Poori Bhaji, Masala Dosa or Akuri Eggs to start your day.
Address: Ground Floor, Silo 4 at the Silo District, V&A Waterfront
