Cape Town Eats City Walking Tour

BREE STREET VIEW WITH CULTURE CLUB CHEESE

Bree Street – home to over 40 new spots in the last 18 months – this is the hub of the quirky, creative and artisanal openings in the city. We spend time exploring some of the artisanal offerings on Bree Street

This tour explores Cape Town from all sides.   It aims to climb under the skin of the city so that by the end of the day you understand the pulse of of the city.  We explore it from all sides – the history, the people, their cultures, their cuisines, as well as contemporary Cape Town and its artisanal trends.   Cape Town is a city that has been metamorphosing at a rapid rate over the last ten years – it feels like a butterfly that is emerging from a city that was once a run down area that was purely a business district into a city where we now live and play.

The Bo-Kaap is one of the most beautiful areas of the city.   It is also the heart of our Cape Malay Community – and as such we stop to explore and taste some of the local favourite dishes.

wardia samosas

Sampling freshly cooked samosas must be one of the most delicious things to try in Cape Town.   Wardia gets up at 3am to make her own pastry.

MonkeyBiz Buddah

We stop to explore community beading initiatives en route.   MonkeyBiz is a non-profit that now has more then 400 beaders supplying them with beaded artworks

South African’s love milk tarts.  If you visit a home for tea on a Sunday – you will usually find it served with Milk Tarts.   Both the Afrikaans and Cape Malay community claim this one as their traditional dish!

Micro Coffee Roasters are scattered all over Cape Town and Woodstock – as such we have become coffee fanatics.    Let us know if you love coffee and we will stop to visit a few!

Ryan - Truth

Truth Coffee Cult boasts that they offer the best cup of coffee in the world.   With the Steam Punk theme – they are one of the most wonderful coffee shops to stop and visit….even if you don’t love coffee!

Tour Duration:   Monday to Friday 09h00 to 15h30.   On a Saturday from 08h30 to 15h30 (earlier start as we include the Biscuit Mill Neighborhood Goods Market on a Saturday)

Note the Eats Tour:

  • does not operate on a Sunday (the city is closed on a Sunday!)
  • operates as a private tour only
  • Is a walking tour – it is however mostly flat and you only need a moderate level of fitness
  • Please let us know if you have any dietary requirements – vegetarians are no problem at all – but sadly we struggle with vegans!
  • Note we are happy to drop you anywhere centrally after the tour – so it is a good idea to combine the day with a visit to Table Mountain Cableway (weather permitting!).   We are happy to drop you at the cable car station and you can simply taxi back to your hotel later.

Costs:  Please email us as it depends how many people you are and where you are staying.

Supersize your tour to a full day:

  • Note that you can book the tour as a full day and do a combo of the Cape Town Eats Tour in the city combined with the Constantia Winelands in the late afternoon.

    Hi,

    Myself and my boyfriend were hoping to do the city eats walking tour sometime in the next week and we were wondering if there is any availability and what the prices would be?

    Thanks,

    Megan
