Cape Towns Faves / 02.

Hello

I recently spent some time in the CBD exploring mainly Loop Street and Long Street. I thought I’d sum up some of my favourite places that I found on my walkabout. I love Town and the shops and cafes are so trendy and cute!

The Company Gardens

I recently visited the Company Gardens for the first time in quite a few years. Since primary school, we frequently visited the gardens and the museums in the vicinity too. The other day, I popped in, and was amazed by the upkeep and improvements that have been made. There’s a wonderful vegetable garden and a cool restaurant and cafe. Its amazing to see that after all these years, the historical place is so glorious and beautiful. And to top it all off, the view of our lovely Table Mountain is just incredible.

Yours Truly Cafe

I’ve been drooling over photos of this cafe for a few months now, but recently when I was in the CBD, I popped into the Loop Street branch. I love little cafes that are interesting and this one is really cool! It’s so breezy and airy, with dark, reddish-brown leather seating, and wooden tables with bar-style stools. There are plants hanging outside the window of the cafe an and perched on shelves inside too. It reminded me of the whole indoor-outdoor living that is so trendy. They also make a mean frappe!

Long Street and Loop Street

I know this sounds kind of broad-spectrum, but I generally love Long Street and Loop Street. They have all the shops that I really like that sell everything from coffee to artisan clothing and ceramics. I spent some time strolling down these streets, popping into stores and looking at the interesting clothing, watches, furniture and clothing. I love all things handmade and local, so for me, I could spend the whole day on these streets. My favouriteΒ  shops that I came across were Stable, Mungo and Jemima and 117 on Long. I also saw some art galleries and my favourite one in particular was Smith, that has such wonderful and colourful paintings.

Happy exploring!
