Iconic rock legends The Beach Boys were the inspiration for
a new culinary creation when they visited Cape Town on the weekend.
The 1m-long Beach Boy Pizza, which contains the group’s favourite pizza ingredients, was

Sundoo while visiting the restaurant.
While in Cape Town on their first ever South African tour, Mike
Love and other members of the reformed Beach Boys band took time out from their
busy tour schedule to explore the Cape, settling in style at the Grand Café
& Beach in Granger Bay.

host such artistic legends at the Grand. The “Beach Boy” pizza has already
proven to be complete hit with customers. The colourful collaboration of
flavours perfectly represents our unique beach ‘vibe’ and all-round celebration
of summer,” says the Grand’s GM, Tom Jager.
