The best pizza I’ve ever eaten was on Kuredo Island, Maldives. Maybe it was also the sea, sand, sunset and my new husband that heightened the taste and experience.
The best burger I’ve ever eaten was made by my big brother: a thick, hand-crafted patty with the most delectable toppings, washed down with a Lynchburg lemonade cocktail.
My favorite salad is a classic Caesar with crispy bacon. The balance of flavours is so enjoyable, washed down with a glass of chilled Savignon Blanc.
I cannot resist a fresh (and still warm) croissant from Olympia Café and a triple-shot skinny capo on a Saturday morning after a surf!
Anelde Greeff, Editor-in-chief
Favourite restaurant for a midweek dinner: Chef Pon’s Asian Kitchen or Maharajah in Kloof Street.
For coffee: Jason in Bree Street. They also happen to make the best pastries in town.
After-work drinks: Suggestions are welcome! I’m struggling to find a place that I really like. I miss Caveau.
My favourite market: The Stellenbosch Slowmarket. I can’t help but leave there with a bootfull of food.
Kelly Cloete, Account Director
What’s your favourite neighbourhood haunt? The Gardener’s Cottage for breakfast – they do the best eggs Bendedict.
What’s your favourite place for a good quality coffee? Hard Pressed Café.
Which is your favourite weekend market? Fernkloof Farmers’ Market in Hermanus.
What is your signature dish? Anything people can help themselves to – currently Italian chicken traybake, followed by rocky road chocolate bark.
Abigail Donnelly, Editor
My favourite spot for drinks after (or during) work: House of Machines.
For coffee: Espresso Lab.
The one thing I don’t eat? Green pepper.
Saturday morning foodie activity? Boiled eggs and toast soldiers in bed with my boys.
Your signature dish? I have one a month, so this month it has to be my nana’s slow-cooked rice pudding. It takes three hours so that it turns into a creamy bowl of deliciousness.
Katharine Jacobs, Online Editor
Favourite ice cream flavour: the salted chocolate from Unframed Ice Cream on Kloof Street. It’s the best I’ve had outside of Italy.
Breakfast: The matcha pancakes at Scheckter’s Raw in Sea Point. They come with a beautiful whipped coconut cream, and fresh fruit. So good!
For a coffee: House of Machines on Shortmarket Street make insanely good coffee.
The one thing you don’t eat? Bananas. As far as I’m concerned they shouldn’t be allowed.
Linda Scarborough, Copy Editor
For a midweek dinner: 1890 House in Observatory for prawn tempura Cali rolls, or Jerry’s Burger Bar around the corner for the Sweet Baby Cheeses burger.
For a celebration: Pot Luck Club for their vanilla pineapple cosmos, sensational food (organised by flavours – salty, umami, sour, sweet and bitter) and the view as you ascend in the glass elevator box.
The one thing I don’t eat? Celery. And a dishonourable mention goes to lettuce.

My favourite Italian restaurant is Burrata at the Old Biscuit Mill. Their antipasti is my kryptonite.
I always order vegetarian dishes, even though I’m not a vegetarian. Well, almost always. Waiters get very confused when I ask for bacon on a veggie burger.
My signature dish is dark chocolate brownies. Or pavlova. Or cheesecake. I bake a lot.
My favourite place for a good quality coffee is the Woolworths on St. George’s Mall. Their black Americanos are so unbelievably creamy that it’s hard to believe that they don’t contain milk.
Nikita Buxton, Writer
My favourite Italian restaurant? I have a serious weakness for thin-based, wood-fired and authentically Italian pizza. In Cape Town, Posticino and when visiting the family in Durban, Al Firenze.
My favourite neighbourhood haunt? There is nothing better than a glass of bubbles or wine at the chic La Boheme.
My favourite bottle of wine is a toss up between David Nieuwoudt’s Ghost Corner Sauvignon Blanc or a bottle of Savage White.
I always order the wine list and a glass of bubbly to start… Has it become obvious that I’m a fan of wine?

My favourite burger joint can be found at Hudson’s in Claremont. They serve a variety of great burgers and the bill arrives with a bunch of familiar and chewy candies (which, crucially, are not mint flavoured).
My favorite market is The Earth Fair Food Market in St. George’s Mall, which takes place every Thursday. I also love the BMC Family Market in Bergvliet on the first Saturday of every month. I am always blown away by the different aromas in the air and the novelties you can find.
My favorite breakfast spot is my kitchen. We always keep the refrigerator stocked with fresh ingredients for a wonderful breakfast over the weekends.
Lindsay September, Editorial Assistant
My favourite burger in Cape Town is the one from Joe’s Diner, stuffed with chilli con carne, peppadews and guacamole.
My favourite sweet treat is a fight to the death between cinnamon buns and cupcakes from Velvet Cake Co.
In the office, I snack on popcorn, and make everyone appropriately envious.
Jeanine Boshoff, Head of Advertising and Sales
In my kitchen, you will always find dark chocolate.
My favourite neighbourhood restaurant is Bocca, for their margarita pizzas.
My favourite market is Neighbourgoods Market in Jozi.
My favourite flavour ice cream is Häagen-Dazs’s salted caramel.
Werner Hayward, Business Manager
Favourite neighbourhood restaurant? La Boheme.
One appliance I’d love in my kitchen is a second dishwasher because then we will have one for clean stuff and one for dirty stuff and then it never has to get unpacked. I would also like a pizza oven.
In the office, I snack on my pen, most of the time.
Mandy Petim, Key Account Manager
Tina Kapoutsis, Digital Sales Executive
My favourite burger joint is Royale (and best burger there is the Sweet Petunia).
Market is OZCF Market.
Breakfast spot is anywhere that serves eggs Benedict.
My signature dish is vanilla cupcakes with Nutella icing.
