Toomuchloveliness: Botanicum Cafe & Grill

Botanicum Cafe & Grill for lunching in the ‘burbs

I live in the ‘burbs and love a sneaky Sunday lunch close to home with plenty of wine and indulgent food. To be honest… I like this kinda lunch on Saturday too and wine filled dinners wherever possible. But our visit to Botanicum Cafe & Grill was a Sunday lunch and it just ticked all…

My SUPER HONEST 2019 Cape Town Winter Specials

If you’ve been following the blog for some time you’ll have seen my 2018 post on the Cape Town winter specials. It started like this: The latest Cape Town Winter Restaurant Specials are hitting the internet and I am finding them… disappointing. I’m not sure what your disposable income situation is looking like – but a…

Winter Specials at BOCCA

I have also loved the pizzas at BOCCA but as is the Cape Town way we often don’t visit the same restaurant more than a handful of times. We’re a flippant bunch and we happily flock to the new without going back to visit our favourites. Near the end of last year BOCCA changed hands…

MY SUPER HONEST 2018 Cape Town Winter Restaurant Specials

I had a little rant on Instagram the other day. I generally keep below the radar but lately I have been feeling like the restaurant industry is having a laugh. The latest Cape Town Winter Restaurant Specials are hitting the internet and I am finding them… disappointing. I’m not sure what your disposable income situation…

Mulderbosch

I actually really really like Mulderbosch. I like their gorgeous view, I like their wine, I like their pizzas and cheese boards and I like that you can play boules after enjoying all of the above. My problem with Mulderbosch is the really bad service. I’m a forgiving person – but this blog post is…

Allee Bleue

Summer is for adventures! And my favourite adventures involve a passport. When I can’t be jet setting I like to explore a little more locally. On a gorgeous sunny day we set off to Franschhoek to visit Allee Bleue! The best adventures start with sparkling wine and luckily Allee Bleue was able to help us…

Stables at Vergelegen Wine Estate

After a particularly fantastic wine tasting of Vergelegen wine we headed through their herb garden and straight for their restaurant! Vergelegen is home to both the gorgeous and upmarket Camphors and the more casual bistro style Stables at Vergelegen. This visit we had the pleasure at dining at the beautiful Stables. The restaurant it truly…

Brenaissance for Pizza and Wine!

On a miserable winters day we found ourselves in Stellenbosch. We had ticked off stop one for wine and were now in need of warmth and comfort food. This led us to Brenaissance! We visited Cafe Blanc de Noir for their delicious pizzas! Brenaissance offers a pizza and wine pairing. However we were a very…

City Bowl Market on Hope Street

The City Bowl Market can be found in a big old building half way up Hope Street on a Saturday morning and afternoon. Once a month the normal market adds on a fashion section with sellers of vintage kinda clothes, crazy hats, jewellery and even masquerade masks. The fashion market can be found upstairs. Lots…
