i get a surprising number of emails from people around the world telling me they’re about to travel to cape town / south africa and do i have any tips, or “please can you make a cape town city guide post” – etc. well, truth is i don’t actually live in cape town. if you want to know the ins-and-outs of a sleepy town in the winelands, i’m your gal!¬†that said i will be moving to the mother city one of these days (months) and i already spend a fair amount of time there – so that guide might be coming your way soonish.

in the meantime if you’re in the fairest town of the cape make your way to clarke’s bar and dining room on 133 bree street (a couple of doors down from birds and diagonally across the road from &union – you can’t miss it). we popped in there the week that they had opened and unfortunately there was no table for us (even though the kind hostess offered to send us a text in case anything opened). i admired the light fittings and was sad that i couldn’t partake in their “yum fries”. i will be dropping in there again soon, hopefully they will have a burger ready for me. HINT HINT guys!

they also have a facebook page if you’re into that. all the nice photos were taken by alexia webster.

    Its my dream to someday travel to South Africa…and if I do this will probably be the first stop. I love all the potted plants and the simple design. Thanks for sharing!

    Stellenbosch was BEAUTIFUL. we went to SA this summer and drove around the Cape. we only spent a little time in your town – enough to eat a fast lunch and head to the airport, but it was one of my favorites. I really, really want to go back!
