Take a seat at Table 13

A few weeks ago I found myself in Green Point, picking up a ring from a local jeweler. Upon my arrival I discovered that they were still busy setting the stones and polishing and adding the final touches so I decided to take a leisurely stroll while the jewelers did their thing.

Meandering around a sunny Green Point I came across a little coffee shop that sprawled out onto the sidewalk in typical Cape cafe fashion. We really are lucky to live in such a euro-feeling city that these things tend to become commonplace, to our great content. I was on my way back to the jeweler so I made a mental note that I would pop by this place, named Table 13, when I again found myself in the area.

That just so happened to be a week later, when I was back to have said ring resized haha… So, armed with knowledge that the street-side cafe awaited, complete with umbrellas to hide me from the harsh African sun, I moseyed on over…

Table 13 really is a surprising little place. Their menu is quite varied and they have taken time to cater for many a different taste bud.

Quaint little street-side sprawl... We shall call it Euro-Cape style...

The newly announced fiance and I sat down at the leafy and shaded table and set about the menu, spoiling us for choice. We decided to try out the sandwiches, which sounded delicious – I had the gammon, camembert and dijon mayo sarmie – it was such a treat I forgot I needed to take a photo for the blog before I bit into it, it was just too enticing to wait. Nonetheless, I got my pic, massive bite included!

See - I wasn't kidding. I was so famished I took a pic with half the sarmie in my mouth - doh!

I had a chai tea while the fiance tucked into a bacon and avo sarmie (slightly less daring though equally tasty – sometimes the classics are classics for a reason), sided with a nice warm cup of hot chocolate. Strange combination, but it worked!

Overall Table 13 had stacks of charm, friendly staff, some freshly baked delicacies and even had a pop-up Austrio-German (yes I just made that up) food stall in the evenings that served everything from sauerkraut to curry bratwursts.

A selection of take away treats waits inside as well...

If you’re in the area, give it a bash.

Happy Eating! 😛
