Listed as number 10 by The Telegraph on their list of the top burger joints internationally – this establishment definitely lives up to their reputation.

Euro Haus Continental Bakery and Bistro
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and Euro Haus offers some of the best in German breads, cuisine and of course breakfast. Situated on the corner of Loop and Orphan Streets, the restaurant is tastefully decorated with a slice of European flair and a touch of South Africa. The restaurant interior boasts wooden cladding made from a 100-year-old ship and a chandelier made from over 60 console jam jars.
We suggest you tuck into the firm favourite – the eggs benedict with Salmon, it’s bound to sustain you through a fun-filled day touring the Mother City.
Combining the concept of a South African braai with Korean cuisine, Galbi is a must on any foodie’s bucket list. Hidden in an alley on the corner of Loop and Long, this Cape Town restaurant should not be judged by their exterior as their interiors offer a vibey atmosphere.
They tick all the boxes for a unique dining experience: a new dining concept, industrial décor, a hidden location and a delicious menu that features both Korean dishes and local favourites. The best part about the restaurant is the fact that you need to make your own food over a grill – DIY style J
Located just below Long Street Hotel, you can roll out of bed and visit this lovely dame called Lola (as the restaurant likes to be referred to). The café is on the ground floor of a beautifully refurbished Victorian building and has been serving scrumptious breakfasts amidst the hustle and bustle of the corner for years.
Their French toast croissants and creamy oats are some of their favourites on their menu. If you need a healthy lunch after plenty of days of indulgence, then their Caesar Salad is the perfect light option.
A craft beer destination, Beerhouse is a restaurant and bar that has certainly made their mark in the Cape Town scene. With quite literally 99 different bottles of beer from around the globe available to taste and enjoy, this Long Street legend is the local watering hole of the Mother City.
Labelled as curators of the ‘Beer revolution’, they have a beer or cider to suit everyone’s taste buds. Pop across the road at about 6pm (before the mad rush), and enjoy a selection of wholesome dishes, from peppadew wontons to juicy burgers.
If you are unsure where any of these restaurants are, ask our staff at the front desk for directions, they’ll happily help.
