Cape Town is a stylish, laid back city with some of the best summer weather on the planet. Where better to enjoy a delicious breakfast?

Here are some of the city’s best places to do just that.

Four & Twenty

Styled after quaint Parisian breakfast spots, Four & Twenty offers fresh, seasonal and sustainably sourced produce that’s beautifully plated. Go large when you’re visiting, as the big-hitting menu features gems like the cider sausage fry up with cider-poached bratwurst and beer-battered flapjacks with pecan-and-apple streusel in a cinnamon-and-caramel sauce.

Kleinsky’s Deli

In true New York deli style, Kleinsky’s has perfected the much-loved bagel. Be sure to try the breakfast bagel while you’re there. It’s topped with lamb bacon (or avocado if you prefer), fried egg, cheddar and tomato.

Location: 95 Regent Road, Sea Point

Hemelhuijs

Given its constantly changing interior space, whimsical displays of fresh flowers and creative seasonal menu, Hemelhuijs is a bona fide treat for foodies. The divine, all-day breakfast menu has included treats like homemade potato rosti with salmon gravadlax and poached egg, and French toast with Pecorino, home-made prickly-pear syrup and bacon.

Saucisse Boutique Deli

Delicious flavours and local produce characterise Saucisse Boutique Deli. Expect to find tremendous gourmet sandwiches and vegetarian options.

Baked On Regent

Remember to visit Baked on Regent if you’re a coffee and pastry lover. That said, the menu also includes tasty breakfast dishes such as the house-made breakfast wrap with scrambled eggs, chilli, red onion and Parmesan.
