Located inside a restored old house, Manna Epicure café has an airy, all-white interior that blends homelike elements—such as a fireplace mantle lined with glass flower vases—with more eclectic touches like hanging teapots and a chandelier made with sticks of white wattle wood. The café specializes in local products, serving everything from regional wines and cheeses to homemade breads and cupcakes, displayed beneath old-fashioned cake domes. The menu includes brunch dishes like poached egg, smoked salmon, and avocado with toasted coconut bread, as well as lunchtime salads and tapas such as roasted aubergine with toasted pecans and gorgonzola.
After brunch, spend the afternoon browsing the trendy shops on lower Kloof Street. Popular stops include Wardrobe, a vintage-style clothing store, and Salon91, a contemporary art gallery.
