Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Johannesburg

Red Mango
Health freaks come for their fix of yoghurts, smoothies and juices at Red Mango, though more filling sandwiches are on offer for those craving carbs.
I Love Cup Cake
The name says it all here, where cupcake culture abounds and calories aren't there to be counted.
The Birdcage
A deli-style café doesn't have to be run-of-the-mill, as The Birdcage proves with its eclectic décor and belt-busting menu.
Moemas Postma
Ladies-and-ladies that lunch love to do so at Moemas Postma, a five-table café-cum-bakery that proves once and for all that size really doesn't matter.
Tashas
Focusing on what's important in life - food and piled-high plates of the stuff - Tasha's doesn't underestimate the power of simplicity with affordable snacks and innovative style all under one roof.
Espresso Cafe
Though a laid-back cafe rather than a bar, Espresso is the place to be to enjoy a few beers and settle in for chilled out afternoon or evening...
Bella
Freshly-made sandwiches and pies are the order of the day in this gourmet take on a casual café.
Contessa Tea Shop
A cup of tea is Britain's answer to everything - a sentiment echoed here at Contessa, offering over 60 different types of tea from around the world. Beats expensive therapy any day.
Salvation Cafe
A charming, neighbourhood cafe formed with 'the soul of good food' in mind.
Steffanie’s
Steffanie isn't just a lady, she's also the name of one of the most popular places to refuel in town. Perfect for pre- or post-shopping.
Life
Death by design seems to be the motto at Life, a design-savvy deli offering weary shoppers fuel amidst stylish surroundings.
Junipa’s Cafe
A garage sale has never been taken so literally as it has at Junipa, a deli that started life in a garage some 12 years ago to become the best in all of Jo'burg.
Wild Olive
There's nothing quite like home-cooked food, which is why this deli offers it by the plate-load to ravenous locals.
Andiccio 24
Perfect for those late-night munchies, Andiccio 26 is where the after-party's at. Delivery also available for those who can't walk in a straight line.
Chocodore
Chocoholics congregate at Chocodore, where a love of the brown stuff is positively encouraged.
