Rise and shine – but hopefully not too early. The work-from-home trend has offered us many luxuries, including enjoying a late breakfast at our favourite spot around Town.

Whether you enjoy a traditional farmhouse breakfast or Nutella with French toast, we’ve got you covered for the best brunch spots in the Mother City.

Mulberry & Prince

This trendy New York-inspired space is a must-try and can be found in Cape Town’s CBD. They offer a range of mouth-watering foods, including chicken and waffle and banana stuffed french toast – heaven.

Grumpy & Runt

If you’re looking for an indulgent vegan option, then Grumpy and Runt is perfect. This female-owned deli specialises in hand-crafted doughnuts (yum!) and serves a range of New York-style vegan deli food. Try their famous sourdough sandwiches or sweet and savoury pies for that pre-afternoon meal.
