Best places to order epic avocado on toast in Cape Town

From the classic combination of smashed avo on toast to creative twists that include toppings like feta, poached eggs, and smoked salmon, there’s no shortage of options. Whether you’re a local or a visitor to the city, we’ll explore some of the best places in Cape Town to get your avo toast fix, so you can start your day off right with a delicious and satisfying meal while you discover the ultimate avocado toast experience in Cape Town.

Kleinsky’s Delicatessen (Sea Point)

This beautiful little deli has a menu filled with delicious meals including sandwiches and soups, but it’s their smashed avo on rye that you need to try. With smashed avo, sauteed mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, and pickled red onions on a slice of toasted rye bread topped with a poached egg, it’s not your average avo toast breakfast.

The Larder (Claremont)

The Southern suburbs boast this hidden gem where you’ll find amazing coffee and the freshest food made from scratch. Their meat is pasture-raised and eggs are free range and everything is eco-friendly right down to the packaging of the coffee. Their famous avo smash is served on sourdough, wholewheat, rye or gluten-free spinach bread.

House of Machines (CBD)

This Cape Town institution is known for being a fun place to hang out after work and experience some awesome music, but they also have an all-day breakfast where you can get some yummy avo and tomato on rye toast topped with bacon to cure that headache from the night before.

Clarke’s (CBD)

Another spot known to be the place where locals go to cure their hangover with yummy all-day breakfast (or some hair of the dog), Clarkes prides itself on making everything fresh and yummy. All their breads are either baked by them or Woodstock bakery daily and avo is only available if it’s ripe. Their delicious avo toast comes with homemade labneh (a strained yoghurt) and you can add a fried or poached egg.

Backyard Café (Bergvliet)

This aptly named spot is a little hidden treasure in the ‘burbs behind the owners’ furniture showroom that has comfy sofas, beautiful wooden sofas and a gorgeous fountain. Opened in 2021, this eatery makes a variety of yummy breakfast and lunch meals but is also a great place for teatime. Their avo toast is especially delicious as it’s topped with feta, and caramelised onion and served on sourdough. Plus, you can add bacon or scrambled eggs for R25 more.

The Gardener’s Cottage (Newlands)

This 30-year-old restaurant is found at the Montebello Design Centre. It’s perfect for brunch on warm days or just an excuse to have a cup of coffee surrounded by lush greenery while not going too far out of the city. There’s a nursery just next door as well if you’re a keen plant parent. If you’re in the area between 8:30 and 11 AM on the weekend, then pop in for their “breakfast snack” which is their freshly home-baked sourdough rye toast with hummus, sliced avo and fresh tomato.

Jason’s Bakery (Green Point)

Whether you go for just a cup of coffee, pair it with their delicious pastries, or have a delicious, toasted sarmie, Jason’s Bakery never disappoints. Try their avo smash with basil pesto, Danish feta and micro greens for a fresh, delicious morning treat and add a poached egg.
