“Trendy local hangout.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014

This restaurant delivers for a wonderful local hangout. Be it for breakfast, lunch or dinner, you will not be disappointed.

There is a great selection of delicious and uncomplicated dishes on offer, served in a suitably relaxed environment. Perfect for an impromptu night out.

“A lovely little place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014

Every CT visit usually wouldn’t be complete without dinner with friends at the Side Walk Café.
I recommend you get there just before the sun goes down as the view of Table Mountain and the city is great.

“Just a surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014 via mobile

You just have to go there. This place is not easy to find. But as you are there, you just feel like home. The atmosphear is great and the food is delicious! You have to make a reservation, not just cause its small. It is our surprise of the season!
