Happy Boy, the street-food café in lively Obz

Simple South African street food classics like vetkoek and Stoney

Happy Boy Cáfe, in one of Cape Town’s most lively districts, Observatory, is for everyone – from students and artists to business owners.

FANCY A VETKOEK AND STONEY?

I mean who doesn't love fresh vetkoek and cold, Stoney ginger beer. For all the real Slim Shadys, there’s an Eminem Tartine (mushroom, mint, peas and lemon zest on toast). Or crispy wedges with a shot of tequila...who said potatoes were boring?
