Swan features in Inside Guide’s 40 Best Breakfast Spots in Cape Town!

Rise and shine!

There’s nothing quite like breakfast. From health geeks to hedonists, most agree it’s the most important meal of the day. So, it needs to be done right!

Whether you’d like to eat your Eggs Benny in a posh hotel, savour avo toast in a boho café, or enjoy a hangover fry-up in a greasy spoon, here’s our comprehensive list of the best breakfast spots in Cape Town – not forgetting croissants and coffee at a sidewalk café.

Swan Café

Oozing Parisian panache, this sexy French crêperie is swathed in romantic mythology, with representations of Leonardo da Vinci’s and Jean-Léon Gérôme’s Leda and The Swan on its walls. The space was brought to life by local designer Haldane Martin, who worked closely with owner Jessica Rushmere, to create a traditional French café, with accents of red, white and blue adding fresh appeal.
The delicious aromas of crêpe batter, melting chocolate and brewing coffee will certainly lure you inside, especially on chilly winter mornings. And, once there, you’re sure to find something you love – even health-conscious eaters, who’ll relish the gluten-free, buckwheat-based galettes.

Breakfast served Tuesday – Friday, 8am – 3pm
Saturday, 8am – 3pm
Sunday + public holidays 9am – 2pm
