Danced your heart out in the city, fell asleep with a full face of make-up on, and McDonalds next to the bed? Your body needs a saviour! Your body needs BRUNCH.

Lets get brunch right now

We all know you won’t be waking up before 10am, so head down to one of these spots to reawaken your slay queen!

Clarke’s Bar & Dining Room

Clarke's restaurant

Offers all-day-breakfast and a mimosa special fit to make you sparkle while you chat with your bb’s about the previous night! If you’re feeling particularly ~under the weather, we would recommend ordering the MINT tea – they use fresh mint and it cleanses the senses right TF up. You can get more than your money’s worth at Clarke’s, the food is comforting and fresh, and no brunch is complete without their twice fried fries and aioli.

Vibe: That of a garden hipster who is open-minded, warm-hearted and genuine. There’s plenty of lush greenery and those bright brunch-time beams bounce all over the clean interior. It’s a little space of heaven in the city!

Mimosa please

Jarryd’s Eatery

Absolutely the most instagram worthy plates of food you could eat with both your eyes and your mouth. Every meal looks like a piece of art made especially for you. Jarryd was actually serving the day we were there, and it was so lovely to witness the joy he has for his restaurant. Be warned, it gets VERY busy! With such an extensive menu, we were expecting the food to be average, but jokes on us ‘cause Jarryd’s does NOT do ordinary. We do wish the extraordinary menu extended to the drinks, ‘cause the iced coffee was too small for our headache.

Vibe: That chic, modern minimalist with a taste for fine art. There is a constant buzz, and the tables are very close together, so be prepared to peer into other people’s’ plates and marvel at what they ordered. Natural light filters in through the glass ceiling as the perfect atmosphere to photograph your plates of pure art.

The Raptor Room

We are so down with the concept of throwing everything you love into what you create. Put all the eggs into the basket, hun, you’re WORTH IT. At Raptor Room , they love dinosaurs, the colour pink, delicious monsters, and Cape Town culture. The food is OUT OF THIS WORLD amazing, and so original. The bursts of flavour and detail transcend to even the house salad, which is garnished with edible flowers. You can really taste the passion and care in every bite, it’s like your best friend is trying to cheer you up after a break-up.

Vibe: The cool girl you know you are, surrounded by tones of pink and green, creative artwork, and more importantly, your best pals. Expect late 90’s early 00’s music blasting through the entire restaurant. Every moment feels like a celebration at The Raptor Room, it screams confidence and self-love, and you can literally smell the love from the trays of bacon in the oven <3

i want bacon

Truth Coffee Roasting

We stan Truth coffee HARD, and so do the baristas at the cafe! You might feel a bit intimidated by the aggressive sugar sachets and the resting bitch face glare if you ask for anything other than cold brew or ‘flat white’. Do not ask for a frappuccino. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. They love their coffee almost as much as we love our Netflix accounts, You + Truth coffee = OTP <3

Vibe: That kind of pretentious nerdy know-it-all with a cool style. It can feel a bit ~themed, but it’s done so classy, you can forgive it being OTT. The lighting is dim, with heavy industrial interior, and a few intimate booths. If you’re into steampunk and H.G. Wells is your main guy, this place is for you! Truth is not afraid to stand out, and to embrace the quirk. We know we’re harping on about brunch being a ~social gathering, but this is one spot where you don’t need to feel weird going to alone, in fact we would recommend it.

A menu with all the classics! Get yourself ready for some ASMR realness with the gooey eggs and crispy bread. Is hot coffee in a glass the new thing that we don’t understand? The coffee is delicious and smooth, but again, way too small for our feels.

Vibe: Glamorous Indie Rock ‘n Rollwith clean black seating and crisp uncomplicated decor. There is plenty of space, and the staff are so friendly and accommodating.
