It’s a short work week in South Africa seeing that Monday was a public holiday, so it’s time to start making plans for the weekend again. Last week I blogged about things to do in Cape Town on a Friday night, and here are some suggestions for what to do in Cape Town on a Saturday.
WHAT TO DO IN CAPE TOWN ON A SATURDAY
THE BEST BREAKFAST SPOTS IN CAPE TOWN
ON THE ROCKS restaurant in Blouberg has to be one of the restaurants with the best views in Cape Town. It’s literally situated on the rocks with a magnificent view of Table Mountain and the sea. Go there for breakfast on a nice, sunny day and sit outside. It’s also a great dinner spot so check out the menu while you’re there for breakfast.
CAFE NEO in Sea Point is another great favourite – you can go for a run or walk along the promenade (such a great way to start the morning!) and end off with breakfast at Cafe Neo. They get quite busy so be warned.
WHERE TO HAVE LUNCH IN CAPE TOWN
SPICE ROUTE is next to Fairview in Paarl and used to be Seidelberg. You can spend the whole day there – starting with breakfast, then move on to beer tasting before lunch lunch and end off the day with a chocolate tasting. All on one farm! Don’t forget to visit the glass blowing studio – they have some beautiful glass products and you can see how they make it right there.
This is one of my favourites…purely for their Dalewood cheese platter 😉 VREDE & LUST is situated enroute to Franschhoek and they have a divine cheese platter with tempura olives called Dalewood. Visit them for lunch.
ONS HUISIE is situated in Blouberg right on the beach front. They are dog friendly so why not take your four legged friend with you for the outing and take a walk along the beach before or after lunch?
If you want to visit the Durbanville wine route, TABLES AT NITIDA is another great lunch spot. It would be advisable to book, they can get very busy and you don’t want to stand and wait in a queue.
WATCH THE RUGBY AT…
It seems like there is rugby on almost every weekend…or at least that’s what it feels like. If you’re looking for a spot to watch the rugby, grab a bit to eat and have a drink, try one of these: FIREMAN’S ARMS in Cape Town CBD, DOODLES in Blouberg or the BIG BARREL BUSH PUB in the Durbanville wine route area (just after Burgundy estate on your way to Durbanville from Blouberg).
SUNSET IN CAPE TOWN
Take a drive up SIGNAL HILL and watch the sunset from there. It is a beautiful view to watch the city’s lights become brighter and brighter as the sun sets. Take a picnic basket with you to enjoy 🙂 Just a warning, there have been reports of robberies on Signal Hill so be safe and aware of your surroundings at all times – and keep your car’s doors locked.
If you’d like to do drinks with sunset, visit WAKAME in Mouille Point. They have a deck with couches and a beautiful view of the sea. Go early if you want a seat outside 🙂
That’s all I have for you for now 🙂 Do you have any suggestions that you’d like me to add to this list? If yes, let me know by leaving a comment. If you’re visiting Cape Town and would like specific recommendations, drop me in a line in the comments too – I’d be more than happy to make recommendations of places to visit. I hope that if you were looking for something to do in Cape Town on a Saturday, that you found something that you’d like to try from this list 🙂
