Our first day in cape town after 6weeks camping in Africa and our air bnb host told us to go to Jason's. We walked down from Bo Kap and found a very crowded place with a wait to be seated. With no wait to sit inside we went in. The waitress was very nice and brought out our drinks. I... More

Jasons Bakery is a nice little shop, with the best bread I tasted in South Africa. The waiters and waitresses are super kind and anxious. Super fresh and awesome sandwiches.
