Billy Boo’s Cakery

Pop in when you’re having one of those sweet cravings you just can’t ignore. From macarons to handmade cakes and decadent hot chocolates, Billy Boo’s offering is a gourmet experience not to be missed.

Café Honeybun

For local breakfasts, light lunches, smoothies and coffee in the heart of Obz, try Café Honeybun. You’ll feel right at home with the cosy atmosphere and delicious food, like the salmon with a poached egg and sweetcorn fritters.


Ferdinando’s offers Italian fare with pizzas and pasta that will rock your world. (The parmigiana pizza is a must-try, topped with provolone.) Join for an Italian dinner soiree.

Jerry’s Burger Bar

If you haven’t tried a Jerry’s burger, you haven’t lived. There’s the Philly steak burger of your dreams with melted cheddar and a side of skinny fries, plus tacos, hotdogs and wings. Wash it all down with something from the extensive beer or cocktail collections.

Reverie Social Table 

Here you’ll find the ultimate sharing experience with a strong South African influence. The five-course meal (which changes daily) is served at one 18-seater table in the middle of the restaurant, which you’ll share with strangers that will become new friends. Whether you join for lunch or dinner, it’s an experience you won’t easily forget.
