All-day dining is the name of the game at Folk Café. Think Belgian chocolate croissants, bagels, soft poached eggs and ciabatta toast for breakfast and tuna ceviche, spicy chicken livers, drunk mussels, hummus bruschetta, flatbreads and an array of burgers for lunch and beyond.
Ideally situated at the Foreshore end of Bree Street, with plenty of street parking, Folk Café offers a selection of scrumptious, affordable meals that speak to the hearts and palates of Cape Town’s locals and visitors alike. The coffee is a well-balanced blend, created with years of expertise and prepared by highly skilled professional baristas.
Outside seats are hot property in the summer months, when guests can sit and recharge in the shade of trees. Inside or outside, the atmosphere is relaxed and homely with fast and welcoming service. Pastries and cakes, which are made on-site, greet you as you enter and give the café its delicious aroma. Opt for the gluten-free almond and orange slice, Folk’s famous carrot cake or one of the numerous other desserts on offer.
Local, ethically sourced ingredients and free-range meats are delectably combined into honest, hearty dishes. The food is complemented by a seasonal wine and craft beer list that features the Cape’s best tipples. It also offers a healthy ready-made pick-up and go selection for those short of time. Folk Café focuses on quality and also caters externally for local events and meetings.
This unpretentious and vibey spot has made its mark on the strip in its own unique way and is definitely not one to miss.
