One great day in the Regent Road Precinct:
  • To start:We love dropping the car where we plan to finish our journey and Uber down to the opposite end. Usually either at Sunset Pharmacy (an old-time fave as well as a good place for kids gifts) OR at Queen’s or Saunders Beach to end the day with a swim in the sea (don’t forget your towel).
  • Our favourite breakfast spots: Kleinsky’s – best bagels in town (grab some bagels and soup for later) or if you feel like something different; Jenna’s is a newish kid on the block, offering Mimosas all day.
  • If you’re up for a morning treat, grab an ice cream at Crumbs & Cream, a waffle at The Train Restaurant, or a scone at Sonny & Irene.
  • Kanela Cafe is a fabulous hole-in-the-wall Greek Café with hands-on owners (kids of the owners of the Greek Fisherman also on Regent Rod) or Mishu.
  • Peak in at one of the great art galleries before heading to La Perla for a long lunch with the great views, fantastic service and delicious food. (their Aperol spritz is fab.)
  • Then for a little bit of shopping along the way, we like to visit Blink, Unknown Eyewear and Black Betty Design and grab some flowers at Riley’s Wild Bunch and pick up something to take home for a braai from Son of a Butcher or Delicious Fish (also try their tuna biltong and snoek pate.)
  • Then head down to the Saunders Beach, Queens Beach, or Sea Point pools for a swim. (If you don’t have a costume, stop off at Sea Weeds Boutique – there’s something for everyone.)

A Guided Tour of Regent Road

A nice idea for Women’s Day this month is to take a curated urban experience. We recommend Cape Fusion for a guided Sea Point Eats Tour – also great for birthdays, team buildings or if you’re wanting to feel like a tourist in your city.
