Nicole's taste-tastic city eats Tour

If you’re visiting Cape Town, there’s one experience that simply can’t be missed: Cape Fusion Tours’ Cape Town Eats Walking Tour. I had the pleasure of embarking on this extraordinary, captivating, and incredibly fun adventure. Our guide, Pam, proved to be a true fountain of knowledge. She effortlessly led us to the hidden foodie gems, shared the latest happenings, and took us to the most vibrant spots in Cape Town.

Cape Fusion’s Cape Town Eats Walking Tour is a delightful blend of history and culinary exploration. As we leisurely strolled through the city, we found ourselves immersed in its rich past, all while indulging in the diverse flavours and vibes of various eateries along the way.

This tour is a treat for all ages and caters to those seeking a city tour with a unique twist. By venturing out of the confines of a vehicle, we had the incredible opportunity to truly embrace Cape Town’s vibrant life and forge connections with its warm and welcoming locals.

1st Stop: Tamboers Winkel

Our adventure began in the morning at Tamboers Winkel, a charming little cafe bustling with people eager to kick-start their day with a delectable pastry and a creamy cappuccino. Despite its snug size, the cozy ambiance only enhanced the experience.

And off we went on our culinary expedition on foot:

Breakfast time at Our Local Restaurant

Our Local is a delightful spot for breakfast and lunch, with occasional dinner service on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. Don’t miss their exceptional fillet steak. Aimed at the local market, this restaurant offers affordable prices and a vibrant atmosphere adorned with lush greenery. It was once an old mechanic’s workshop, which adds a cool touch to its ambiance. Personally, I couldn’t resist ordering their signature drink, the Bloody Merry, which turned out to be the best I’ve ever had. And the best part? You don’t need a hangover to enjoy it!

Mid Morning City Eats Walking Tour

Our City Eats tour continued down Kloof Street where we stopped off at Oswald’s Bakery, and had the pleasure of tasting freshly baked bread, and right next door, we savoured the flavours of biltong at the biltong shop.

If you love sourdough bread and sourdough pastries, then I suggest a visit to Oswald’s Bakery which is just just off Kloof Street.
