What Did I *love* in Cape Town?

Cape Town was recently named the #1 of the 52 Places to Go in 2014 by the New York Times. Lyndsay was just in Cape Town in December with friends and family and checked out a few new spots (new to her, at least!). What did she love?

  • I loved exploring the Biscuit Mill in Woodstock. Sadly, we weren't able to make it for the Saturday Market, which has become quite the social function, but we did have time to explore the shops and make a few purchases (I found a beautiful toned silver Glen Green photo of the Grand Mosque in Mali and my husband bought handcrafted chocolates and Parisian macarons. To cap the evening off we loved our dinner at the Pot Luck Club, thanks to a recommendation from local friend and a lucky cancellation...it was booked out until February! The restaurant is in the 6th floor of the Silo Building and has an amazing view of Cape Town, Table Mountain and the sea.
  • I loved heading out to Noordhoek for a long lunch at the Foodbarn...our group deemed it the best meal of the trip! We were able to snag some salad fixings, wine and chocolates at their deli shop, too. 
  • I loved visiting several of the local cathedrals and churches that had erected memorials to Nelson Mandela. Madiba passed away while we were in South Africa and it was powerful to be there at that time. Looking from our skylight window of our villa at night, we could see Table Mountain glowing with the image of Mandela's face projected on the sheer cliffs.
