Culinary deliciousness at Black Sheep

Black Sheep over in Kloof Street has quickly built up some really impressive street cred since their opening towards the end of last year…

I have been hearing many great things about their food, so when I finally got to try it out for myself a few weeks ago, I was understandably excited.

The space is quite striking with 3 […]

Prettiness and tasty eats at Liquorice & Lime

As I understand, Liquorice & Lime, which you’ll find right at the top of Kloof St, across the road from well known Italian spot, Bacini’s (hmmm… thin crust pizza…), has been around for quite some time. But for some reason, I just never got around to checking it out.  Well that’s exactly what public holidays […]

Bastion Menswear launch at Salon 91

This past Wed eve I attended the launch of a new Cape Town based fashion label called Bastion Menswear.

This little soiree took place in Kloof St at an awesome boutique-style art gallery called Salon 91.

I had actually noticed this space a few weeks before thanks to the intriguing “Back in Five Minutes” window display and wondered […]

Tasty food and great vibes at Kloof Street House

I recently went to go check out the new Kloof Street House (over in Kloof St obviously) thanks to a recommendation from some friends of mine.  So it’s a special thanks today to Adam & Louise for the great tip off. 🙂

I had actually also spotted it on Eat Out’s new restaurant list, but was a […]

Great fashion finds (for guys & girls) at Metropolis

I recently discovered new fashion boutique Metropolis in Kloof St (thanks to the boyfriend – I promised I’d give him credit for this one 😉 ).

It’s the kind of place where your budget is not safe in any way…  Shopaholics beware!

They stock a great selection of imported things, which means you’ll find that special something that […]

Chilled vibes at Cocoa Oola

One Sun eve my friend Joe suggested we check out Cocoa Oola at the top of Kloof St for an easy dinner catch up.  You’ll find Cocoa Oola on the cnr of Kloof & De Lorentz St, just opposite the Wakaberry.

It’s a very cute little corner spot with some outside seating and a fresh citrus colour […]

The thought of my favourite food getting a fabulous high fashion makeover was just too much excitement for me to […]

This past weekend saw the opening of the first Wakaberry branch in Cape Town.  Wakaberry is a frozen yoghurt (or as they refer to it “froyo”) company which started in Durban back in 2011 and already has 5 stores across KZN, 3 in Gauteng and 1 in Stellenbosch.  Their first venture into the Mother City is situated at […]

Gourmet Boerie teaser…

I’ve been keeping a keen eye on a new development on the corner of Kloof & Buitensingel streets in town…  It’s a dining spot called Gourmet Boerie and they’re due to open later this month.

The term “boerie” being Afrikaans slang for “boerewors”, the name clearly points to the fact that they are going to […]
