Café du Cap‘s flagship retail outlet at 113 Loop Street (in the Cartel House building) is a very beautiful, very relaxed, place for you to enjoy yourself and indulge in some delicious homemade, wholesome eats and treats. In terms of background music, you can expect some French café tunes, smooth jazz, Bob Dylan, Frank Sinatra. Edith Piaf, Rolling Stones – some Marvin Gaye – that kind of thing.
Hours are 07h30 to 17h00, Monday to Friday.
Malawi Cane chairs, palm trees and internationally sourced furnishings surround you, like when visiting a well-traveled friend’s home. The latest issues of FT Weekend, Monocle, Architectural Digest and Conde Nast Traveler are on hand for you to indulge in some quality journalism, where the headlines actually make sense.
There’s a hot plate ‘Plat du Jour’ lunch table and salad bar that will become addictive. Local business folk love this for the quick turnaround time it takes to dish themselves, eat and leave. All your dream sandwiches are available, as well as the best Croque Monsieurs in Cape Town (this is a fact). We serve that with crisps or fries on the side, like in France. Quiche, killer cheese cake, perfectly roasted coffee – it’s all there.
The relaxed, casual atmosphere is a drawcard for local celebrities, who are often spotted paging through the FT and playing on their phones without bother.
There are exquisite ladies’ kaftans available, alongside rare copper pots, vintage French homeware and furniture.
You get the picture – this place is staggeringly Instagram friendly.

Café du Cap is brought to you by 2oceansvibe, so you can be sure the service will be on a level we are used to “when traveling abroad.”
