This is a restaurant for the bagel and American deli lover out there and was the brainchild of a team of brothers Adam & Joel Klein in hope of creating a little slice of New York in the heart of Sea Point. It would seem that they have a menu which has kept people coming back and kept people raving. No trip to this seaside Cape Town suburb is complete without a stop at Kleinskys Delicatessen. Visit their website for more information.

La Boheme


Come eat, drink and be merry at this exquisite bistro which prides itself in quality service and food at affordable prices. This is precisely why Sea Point is a great place in which to base yourself when visiting the mother city. This location also prides itself in being one of the only if not the only dedicated wine bars in Sea Point. Another great reason to come in and stay a while.

This fun-filled family oriented park has been providing the residents of Mouille Point and Sea Point a great day out for the past 55 years and today it also boasts an outdoor mini ice rink the first of its kind for the city of Cape Town. The location is also connected to Rotary Club which is involved with many charity initiatives both locally and internationally.  So your support for The Blue Train Park is greatly appreciated and goes to a worthwhile cause. The area also boasts splendid views of The Atlantic Ocean, Lions Head, Signal Hill and Table Mountain. Visit their website for more information. Not quite in Sea Point itself, however, it’s a short drive, one can hire car in Cape Town if you are visiting and wish to see as much as possible in your time allocated.

Take a walk on the promenade


This definitely is one of the most iconic city beach locations not just in Cape Town or South Africa but also the world. When the weather is good many people can be seen enjoying this iconic part of the mother city. Its close proximity to the water’s edge makes it a great place for various beach side activities such as running, walking, watching the sunrise or sunset or even going surfing. There are also many different people of all walks of life; this gives the area a strong sense of community and character.
