Five Cape Town Sunday Brunch Spots with a View

Cape Town is very much a brunch city, but many of the best places are closed on Sundays. Here are my (very opinionated) best picks, open on Sundays, and with a view to boot!

1. Harvey’s Jazz Brunch, Winchester Mansions


Winchester Mansions, Overlooked by Lion’s Head

Live jazz, a buffet, glass of bubbly and a Sunday newspaper all yours for R225.00 per person. Enjoy views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Sea Point Promenade as you sip said bubbly, browse the news and tap your feet to a different jazz act every weekend.

2.  Table Bay Hotel, V & A Waterfront

A firm favorite with the family on special occasions, dad first brought me here as a daddy-daughter date during my school finals, and the tradition has lived on. Which reminds me…. daddy? Prices for the buffet: continental – R200.00 and full English (plus continental selection) – R250.00.

3. Suikerbossie, Hout Bay

Home of our wedding over six years ago, Suikerbossie is a Capetonian secret. With a full breakfast buffet for only R135.00 per head, the glorious view over Llandudno Beach really is free. (While you are there, look for us on the wedding wall!)

4. Cocoa Oola, Town Centre

Easy, friendly, cheap and with a great mountain view, this branch of the popular Cocoa chain is as cheery as it gets. Great for catching up on browsing or work, they provide free wifi (and smiles – cheese!)

5. Vineyard Hotel and Spa, Claremont

Sitting out in the Vineyard Hotel’s lush garden, you might forget that you’re in the middle of a busy Cape Town suburb, with a frenetic mall and two sports stadiums only metres away. With the uninterrupted view of the Southern side of Table Mountain and acres of landscaped greenery to banish the children, brunch can feel like a monastic retreat. And while you’re there you just might as well get yourself a massage at the renowned Angsana Spa.

Leave a comment telling us your favorite spot – there are so many still to try!
