Fodor's Expert Review Skinny Legs & All

$ Cape Town Central Café

Serving delicious, organic fare from breakfast through lunch, this unpretentious yet design-conscious café is a great addition to Cape Town's downtown food scene. Starting the day with the only muffin in town worth eating (a carrot-coconut concoction, perfectly spiced and not too sweet), breakfast also includes items like raw muesli with sheep's milk yogurt, fresh scones, and French toast with vanilla-infused compote. Lunch usually includes some kind of risotto, soup in the winter, and several salad options in the summer. Though the menu changes regularly, expect dishes like a cinnamon-spiced quinoa salad with roasted eggplant and toasted almonds, wild mushroom parcels with wild rice, or the Lumberjack sandwich of roasted chicken and avocado with homemade coriander mayo. Free Wi-Fi, plenty of reading material, and some great art on the walls complete the picture.
