Dear Park is known for its freshly prepared foods. All meats and eggs have been personally sourced from independent, free- range suppliers, and seasonal organic fruit and vegetables inform the daily specials menu. The baker produces a variety of cakes including an award winning chocolate cake, dense and wholesome carrot-pecan nut, pear and almond cakes and a zesty lemon meringue pie. Freshly squeezed juices are made on demand. The wine list has a balanced selection: good value wines and more serious award winners. The Café is situated on the upper slopes of Vredehoek overlooking Table Bay, and is just below the Deer Park, which is a popular gateway into the Table Mountain Reserve. Light, airy interior, with simple, Scandinavian contemporary design and winter fireplace. North facing windows and doors open onto a green public park with towering Stone Pines and play facilities. Bustling on week-ends with families and children enjoying the park, but more relaxed in the week with plenty of work meetings through the morning and business lunches. Evening service is more formal attracting locals and families. The flexible, open interior-exterior space makes it popular as a function venue of many kinds.
