It’s not often that a bathroom break leads to a great, yet unexpected restaurant discovery but such was the case when we stumbled across Dalliance, whilst strolling about the ever-buzzing V&A Waterfront on a beautiful Saturday morning in September.

Recently, I had the pleasure of visiting a coffee shop that has been on my list (in Cape Town, you need a list with all the places that keep temptingly mushrooming into existence) for a while: Bean There Coffee Roastery, officially launched in 2011 (though it also has Braamfontein and Milpark roasteries among its ranks).

Expo Review: Titanic Artifact Exhibition, Cape Town – Part 2

When you step into the upstairs level of the Watershed, where the second part of the Titanic Artifact Exhibition (running till March 13th) is housed, you instantly feel the change as the temperature drops, the spotlights seem to alter and even the music soundtrack makes a more dramatic shift as you are warned of an iceberg ahead.

Festival Review: Valentine’s Day at the Burger Festival, Cape Town

Perhaps one of the things I love most about the Western Cape – and the Mother City – is its enthusiasm for outdoors festivals and markets, and 2016 has seen yet another such festival added to the city’s growing event ranks in none other than: The Burger Festival. Tickets to Cape Town’s first-ever exclusive Burger Festival sold out quickly, especially […]
