New daytime eatery opens at Zeitz MOCAA in Cape Town

By now most Capetonians have visited the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA) – and Instagrammed about it – but there’s a new reason to go back. FOOD, a new daytime eatery, has opened on level 6 of the museum, which is located at the new Silo District at the V&A Waterfront.

The small all-day section of the menu includes staples such as freshly baked scones served with jam and cream, a cheeseboard and a cake of the day. These can be washed down with tea, coffee, soft drinks and fruit juices.

The bistro section, open from 11am util 3pm, looks after hungry museum visitors with the likes of smoked trout latka with potato rosti and crème fraîche; a bialy (a Polish version of a bagel) filled with fava beans, mint and ricotta; chicken Caesar salad; gourmet sandwiches; and fish and chips. Zeitz MOCAA FOOD also has a signature black ice cream on offer, flavoured with vanilla and rose water.

Zeitz MOCAA FOOD is operated by events company The Aleit Group, and showcases the designs of architect Thomas Heatherwick, which have turned the neglected silo into such an iconic space, not to mention 270-degree views of the Cape Town skyline. The venue is also available as an events space for hire after hours.

FOOD is open from 10am to 5.30pm seven days a week from 15 December 2017 until 15 January 2018, and will thereafter close on Tuesdays for private events. Visit for more details.
