Where to enjoy lunch for less in Cape Town

These restaurants are the perfect spots for a delicious meal that won’t break the bank – perfect to see you through the last days of the longest month of the year!

Bossa Goodtimes Bar (various locations)

A staple in practically every neighbourhood within the Mother City, Bossa offers an extensive menu with something for everyone, from breakfasts to snacks and burgers to pizza. They also offer regular specials, so keep an eye on their promotions page or contact your nearest Bossa for the latest updates. This month, specials include a buffalo wings starter served with chips at R69, Prego chicken pizza at R109 and a club salad at R115.

Iron Steak and Bar (City Bowl)

On the other side of the coin, if you’re a meat-lover, Iron Steak is where you’ll want to dine. The flat iron steak is a must-try cut and can be enjoyed with beef dripping popcorn and a fresh summer salad with a salted caramel ice cream for dessert, at only R129 per person, for lunch or dinner every day of the week.

Hygge Hygge (Stellenbosch)

This pretty spot offers a range of well-priced meals that are healthy and delicious. Choose from a cauliflower and chickpea wrap (R76) or a beef taco (R72) if you’re in the mood for something light. Or go for a salad, harvest bowl, sesame noodles, chickpea curry or burger (each for less than R100).

Bowls Restaurant (Simon’s Town)

For a great variety of meals at even better prices, be sure to check out Bowls Restaurant. Where better to enjoy two pieces of hake and chips with coleslaw and a pint of beer for R95 than in the heart of Simon’s Town on a Wednesday afternoon? And on Friday’s, you can tuck into a proper pub grub meal of a 250g carpetbagger with a brandy and Coke for R180. For more specials, follow them on Facebook.

Lexi’s Eatery (Sea Point)

If you’re testing out Meat-free Mondays this year, Lexi’s Healthy Eatery is the place for you. This innovative restaurant is out to show the world that wholesome food doesn’t have to mean lacklustre greens. Their mainly vegan menu offers a range of burgers and bowls as well as noodles, risotto and curry – and on Mondays, you can get two for the price of one on all their vegetarian breakfasts, burgers and bowls.
