Chapter 10: Family friendly

Dining with kids can be hard, but luckily Cape Town caters for foodies of all ages.

 

Café Roux


Since opening in 2006, Café Roux has become an institution in the Noordhoek Valley. Set in a quaint, old-fashioned farm village, the café is half restaurant, half outdoor music venue, and classy enough to impress on both counts.

Why go?

Expect a fresh, seasonal menu, accompanied by chalkboard specials that change regularly.

Massimo’s


As arguably one of the best Italian-style eateries in the Mother City, Massimo’s needs little introduction—if any, to be frank.

Why go?

There’s pasta and spuntini (tapas-style small plates) on offer, but the wood-fired thin-crust pizzas are a Massimo’s speciality.
