Foodie Friday: Skinny Legs and All

Driving down Cape Town’s Loop Street, you might just blink and miss one of the city’s most beloved gems. Skinny Legs and All is a luxury café serving breakfast, lunch and mouthwatering in-between nibbles.

Skinny Legs is definitely not the new kid on the block. Their doors opened a couple of years ago, and this go-to café will always remain a Pure Creative favourite. Upon entering the opulently designed café, your eyes feast on the permanently rotating exhibition of local artists’ work. The seducing aromas from the open kitchen waft through the tables, which are of course always decorated with freshly picked flowers.

The menu is synonymous with gastronomic excellence, always offering something exciting and healthy. The wine list consists of a handful of expertly chosen wines, pairing perfectly with any meal on the menu.

Our current favourite: The Quinoa Bowl. The crispy fresh parsley, avocado and almond salad that come served with the quinoa is a winner. When in doubt, which is unlikely, the poached eggs and avocado on rye is a go-to dish.

Be sure to try their punchy freshly squeezed juices. Current favourite: Orange and ginger juice ­­– better than coffee.

TOP TIP: Skinny Legs Petite has recently opened their doors on 15 Wandel Street, Gardens.

Open times: Mon-Fri 07.00-16.00 / Sat 08.30-14.00 / Petite: 021 461 2717 / 15 Wandel St, Cape Town
