Perfect summer: Eat Napoli pizza under a palm tree

Plus there’s organic and fresh produce to buy, live music and wine in a can

Last updated: Tuesday, 6 September 2022

This little outdoor gem, tucked away in Kalk Bay, is loved for its Napoli-style pizzas – and the enormous palm tree in the middle of the dining area. It also offers breakfast, other bites (like ribs and sushi), and decadent desserts. Plus, there’s an organic veggie market and regular live music performances.

Airy crusts, thin slices oozing with cheese, and fresh ingredients are what you can expect when ordering one of Sirocco Café’s Napoli-style pizzas. The sourdough pizza bases are made with Italian double-zero flour (the finest grind) and fermented for 72 hours, before it gets hand-stretched and topped with anything you want. Sirocco gives you the freedom to build your own pizza and there are loads of toppings, from olives, mushrooms and pineapple to anchovies, chorizo, blue cheese, and more. If you’re indecisive, take a look at the recommended pizzas; these are made with all the ingredients the Sirocco team loves.

Not a pizza lover? Don’t fret, it serves breakfast (till 11.45am), sushi, and other bites too. Try the slow-cooked BBQ ribs (served with homemade cornbread), free-range chicken wrap, and tortellini. Or opt for a classic fish and chips. There are also yummy desserts, like handmade artisan lollies (try the Peanut Butter Bomb flavour; there’s vegan options too), tiramisu, carrot cake, baked caramel cheesecake, and vegan, gluten-free cookies.

Stop by Sirocco’s Organic Veggie Market on your way out, an important part of this local hangout spot. It’s a mix of a convenience store, bakery, deli, and a space for other local products, but most importantly, for organic and fresh quality produce. You’ll find everything from spinach, kale and turnips, to beetroots, mixed herbs, broccoli and oranges. Plus, there’s freshly baked bread.

Sirocco gets all these organic fruits and veggies from local farmers (like the Neighbourhood Farm in Fish Hoek). Image: Sirocco Café


Like with its organic veggie market, Sirocco is all about supporting local and gives Cape Town artists a space to showcase their work. Listen to live vinyl DJ sessions on Friday evenings, Saturdays and Sundays.

Keep an eye on its social media channels for updated info on live music. Image: Sirocco Café
