Discovering Seapoint

A selection of things to do along the Atlantic Seaboard in Cape Town

Last Update 9 June 2017 

Quite often, Capetonians will only drive through Sea Point in order to get to Clifton or Camps Bay beaches for that all-important day of tanning. By doing so they are missing out on some of Cape Town’s most ravishing restaurants, sensational shopping,  and stunning sea views. Here is a selection of things to do this side of the Atlantic Seaboard.

La Mer Bar & Grill
Indulge in the classy Mediterranean cuisine of Chef Chad at La Mer at The Radisson Blu Le Vendome Hotel. Sneakily tucked away on London Road, this exclusive international hotel is host to two excellent restaurants, an intimate bar and one rooftop pool- not to mention it’s a quiet 2 minute walk from the famous Sea Point Promenade.

New York Bagels
A one-stop-shop for Capetonians that are barmy about bagels, to eat in or take-a-way. New York bagels also doubles up as an excellent bakery and delicatessen. Try the sourdough baguettes or the croissants, or browse their selection of delicious cold meats, cheeses and dips. Have you ever eaten palm tree before? Ask the friendly ladies behind the counter and they’ll be happy to tell you more about it.

Enjoy coffee and breakfast whilst people watching from the carriage window. The Atlantic Express also has a wide variety of delicious evening meal options, from Italian to Asian cuisine. The staff are pretty friendly and knowledgeable too.
