Hg2 : The Hedonist


The spunkiest addition to irreverently cool bistros in Cape Town. As unpretentious haven of fun decor and delicious light meals, and part of a trend towards creating a seriously hip vibe on busy Albert Road in steadily-reviving Woodstock, Superette is located in an original corner store dating from 1902. The crowd is predictably of the university (mostly art school) graduate ilk, tending to hold long and meaningful conversations about pro- found and inane matters as they stare deeply into each other’s eyes. The small kitchen (headed by a tattooed chef with dynamite credentials) opens into a small service area fronted by an old-fashioned bright yellow linoleum deli counter; place your orders here, selecting from the menu hastily scribbled onto the white tile wall, and then take a seat, or help yourself to drinks from the vintage fridge (stocked with drinks and beers). The fashionably grey space is dotted with clever, simple distractions – curious artworks, a set of shelves packed with artisanal food products, yellow flower pots, single bulb lights dangling from the ceiling, and a beautiful buffet table packed with tasty breakfast and lunch items. Enormous window allow diners to watch the scene outside, too.
