#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.

Cape Town is a particularly health-conscious city, and there has been a huge boom in the number of vegan and vegetarian eateries in the Mother City. As breakfast is viewed as the most important meal of the day, those who are plant-based should also be afforded a variety of restaurants to choose from to have their first meal of the day.

Here are some vegan and vegetarian spots that serve up a good brekkie:

The Sunshine Food Co.:

This vegan gem is located in Three Anchor Bay, and is known for their signature usage of sprouts in their dishes.

For a great way to kick off your day, be sure to order their Sunshine Veggie Wrap, which drips in a delicious cultured lemon sauce.

Schekter’s RAW:

One of the city’s most established and esteemed vegan eateries, Schekter’s RAW is home to the famous pumpkin pie flapjack stack. If you’re looking for something more colorful but equally yummy, order their unicorn flapjacks – either way, a meal here rarely disappoints.
