#HighburyHearsYou – we at Cape Town Etc are passionate about getting local restaurants back and booming in business. As part of our #HighburyHearsYou initiative, we’re dishing out the deets on some incredible restaurants in and around town.

There’s nothing like a sweet treat or a freshly-baked pastry to indulge in a bit of mid-week me-time. Pair it with a steaming mug of coffee or a fresh cup of tea and you’re in heaven.

Anita Froneman has rounded up some of her favourite nibbly hangout spots around the Cape, and they’re decently-priced too. All you need to do is phone your bestie and head out for a delightful snack-filled outing. Piece of cake.

This is one pit stop you won’t regret. In fact, forget that idea and turn it into a day trip. Foxcroft serves anything and then some, but we especially love their decadent desserts. Taking fine dining to a whole new level, you can prepare yourself for mouthwatering pastries.
