Breakfasts at Acorn House
At Acorn House we looove food.
It all starts with our breakfast, people say "it has been the best on their journey through South Africa".
Or, as the Greenwood Guide puts it: "Acorn House is serving the 2nd best breakfast in Cape Town." Who is serving the best? We don't know :-)
We serve a wide variety of cold cuts, cheeses, fruit and fresh vegetables, not to forget all our exciting hot dishes. Try our signature dish, Janine's Cape Malay Pancake, or Stewart's famous bobotije.
Discover what else is available and have a phantastic start into the day!
Our Restaurant Recommendations
Cape Town has for many years been well known as one of the best world destinations for eating-out. We strongly agree. Cape Town is THE place to dine out! From fresh fish over gor-geous steaks to fine dining - there is a lot to discover!
There are restaurants for every liking, every pocket, every mood and this is just a small list of.
Societi Bistro, Gardens (www.societi.co.za). Nice and easy.
The Foodbarn, Noordhoek (www.thefoodbarn.co.za). Best for lunch: The drive is very much worth it.
Aubergine, Gardens (www.aubergine.co.za). Fine dining, best wines with Harald Bresselschmidt.
And sooo much more…

We suggest the following 1 day wine tour
Leave Cape Town on the N1 and exit at the Stellenbosch via R304 sign. Follow the R304 to Stellenbosch and enjoy the winefarms en route. We recommend:
Villiera (http://www.villiera.com) : A wide range of wonderful whites and bubblies.
Beyerskloof ( http://www.beyerskloof.co.za ): Succesfully focussing on Pinotage, South Africa's home grape.
Lunch: Cuvée @ Simonsig
Waterford ( http://www.waterfordestate.co.za ): Great wines with Kevin Arnold Shiraz as a benchmark. Red wine and chocolate tasting!
Rust en Vrede ( http://www.rustenvrede.com ): One of SA's best winefarms. Expensive reds.
Return on the N2 to Cape Town. Enjoy your day!
And, if you don't want to drive yourself, Beate offers to take you to the winelands and do a personalized tour with you.
We suggest a visit of the following winefarms
Morgenster ( www.morgenster.co.za ): Italian owned. Great reds and arguably the best olives in the country.
Fairview (www.fairview.co.za) Huge wine and cheese farm. Touristic, not the Reserve Wine - tasting! Lunch.
Glen Carlou (www.glencarlou.co.za) Swiss owned. Exclusive winefarm with great views. Art exhibition. Lunch.
Boschkloof (http://www.boschkloof.co.za): An underdog in the winelands. Taste his Shiraz!
Jordan (www.jordanwines.com): We prefer the range of Chardonnays. And some reds: Cobblers Hill and Merlot.
Thelema (www.thelema.co.za): Over 25 years of outstanding Cabernets. Their flagship is a Merlot Reserve though.
Tokara (www.tokara.co.za): Stunning whites and reds. Expensive. Art exhibition. Views.
