Trading hours are 09:00 to 19:00 from Monday to Saturday and Public Holidays, and from 10:00 to 17:00 on Sunday.
Main Road | Claremont
This upmarket, new and improved lifestyle precinct is nothing like your standard shopping mall. Sitting flush on Somerset Road, the boutique centre is a veritable treat for those who adore shopping but can’t stand to be indoors for long periods of time. Open and light, comprising high ceilings and outdoor courtyards, the Cape Quarter holds fast to a European-inspired ambience with its sunny central piazza-like spaces, cobblestone floors and myriad of specialist shops and eateries. A revamp of the space including the repositioning of old tenants as well as acquiring of new tenants (including a couple national folk like Vodacom and Sorbet Man) coupled with the relocation of the hub’s amenities and ATMs to more accessible levels has further increased the convenience and user-friendliness of the centre. Shoppers will find everything from alfresco restaurants, galleries and furniture shops to fashion boutiques, jewellery outlets and interior design stores. Visitors can look forward to a delicious cuppa Joe at Bootlegger Coffee Company, lunch from the KiloTable at celebrity chef Jenny Morris’ Yumcious restaurant or dinner at La Petite Tarte. Plus, as it’s a home to a SPAR grocery, a SPAR Tops! Liquor store, a gym and a few hair salons, it’s also an ideal place to get those everyday chores and activities done. What’s more, the shopping mall is open seven days a week and has an abundance of undercover parking bays available across a number of floors, so you’ll never have to struggle to find a spot.
Trading hours: Monday to Friday: 9am – 6pm | Saturday: 9am – 4pm | Sunday: 10am – 2pm
NOTE: Park at Cape Quarter for a flat rate of R5 on Fridays from 3:30pm to 10pm and all day Saturday and Sunday until 10pm.
