Hemelhuijs is a trendy spot in Cape Town's inner city. The owner Jacques Erasmus has a flair for design and the restaurant is small and extremely beautifully designed.

Foodies flock here daily for delicious coffee, sumptuous breakfasts and amazing pastries that are baked daily. Lunch is a stay-longer-than-you meant-to affair as the menu is seasonal, fresh and the dishes imaginative and downright delicious.

Hemelhuijs is reasonably priced and a must-visit on Cape Town's foodie map.

Food24 review: Hemelhuijs

 
 

 

Hemelhuijs is a place that makes me happy.

The whole place is an art installation, from the original crockery to the artwork on the ceiling which owner Jacques Erasmus, personally designed.

The food

Jacques is also somewhat of a food artiste, he has an amazing flair for flavour and his menu reflects a real fascination and talent for comforting, original and interesting food.

His menu changes with the seasons and availability of ingredients, so expect something new and unique every time you go.

The macaroni and cheese is something of a legend and has a culinary twist including apple sauce which is just delicious. It reflects his talent for combining sophistication with comfort which is a common thread in his inspiring and un-pretentious offering.

The salads are fresh and abundant, the mains large and comforting and the desserts, well, the table happily groans with so many mouth-watering pastries and cakes, you just have to have one… or two.

Drinks

There are delicious cocktails with freshly squeezed juices and silky couveture hot chocolate with charcoal salt. Wine is available for something to go with your lunch.

Good for

For all occasions from a quickie coffee and pastry to a long, lazy breakfast, brunch or lunch.
