Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Cape Town

Cape Quarter
Combining shopping, eating and entertainment, the recently-opened fashion piazza of Cape Quarter is a magnet for style mavens.
Man’oushe
Smoke on a shisha pipe while indulging in a mezze platter, and chat with a student-based clientele; studying is the last thing on their minds.
Den Anker
With a reputation that precedes it, Den Anker doesn't need to try hard to fill its tables - but it still does, thankfully.
Olympia Cafe
The laid-back surf vibe here is teamed with brilliant, no-nonsense fare; the inventive salads are particularly memorable.
La Boheme/La Bruixa
With a sense of community and lashings of Spanish style, it's no wonder La Bruixa is popular with the locals.
Rick’s Cafe Americain
Rick's Café Américain draws on inspiration from the film Casablanca, though the hip factory is turned up a notch or two to create a space that is cosy yet incredibly chic.
Sugar
Sugar is one of the hippest retreats in Cape Town, what was once a backpacker's hostel has been renovated into something really rather special...
Giovanni’s Deli
Italians know food, and if you don't believe us, then pick up lunch at Giovanni's Deli World.
Sidewalk Cafe
Tucked away from the tourist trail, Sidewalk Café is a hidden gem.
Biesmiellah
As an authentic Bo-Kaap establishment, diners mustn't leave without trying the luscious lamb stew.
Empire Cafe
Just by the water, listen to the sound of the surf whilst enjoying this café's distinct 1950s vibe. Short shorts entirely optional.
Virgin Active Point
Sweat it out alongside Cape Town's most taut and toned at Virgin Active Point.
Sloppy Sam
A casual eatery with cuisine that draws on inspiration from a number of influences; the charismatic host adds to its panache.
