Breakfast, lunch and dinner
For farm-to-table dining, we recommend Basalt at The Peech (pictured here). Described as just-below-fine-dining is the reliable Marble at Keyes Art Mile.
In the northern suburbs, try Salvation Cafe (44 Stanley), La Boqueria (Parktown North), Liberte and Pronto (both in Craighall Park), Embarc (Parkhust) and Pablo House (Melville). We enjoy Pablo House for its splendid views, interesting wine list and delicious pizzas. Head there during Jacaranda season for an even more impressive outlook over the koppies and all the way to Sandton.
For wine-tasting, head to Gerakaris Wines in Craighall Park.
Finally, there’s Homebaze in Parkmore, which is apparently great for African cuisine (although we haven’t tried it yet). The list goes on….
