Tokara Delicatessen

Wine Farm Breakfast Cape Town: Tokara Delicatessen

Perched on a mountain-side overlooking a valley of vineyards below, Tokara Wine and Olive Estate is one of the most breathtaking spots to spend a morning! It appears so suddenly while driving down the beautiful Helshoogte Pass into Stellenbosch that it’s easy to miss – but, trust us, you’ll be glad you didn’t. The main restaurant is a well-known fine-dining spot, while the Delicatessen, nestled next to the estate’s olive groves, is where magic happens during the daytime. Diners sit inside the large glass-encased interior, or perch on the sun-kissed deck next to the lawns while the kids play in the spectacular architectural playpark – either way, a front-row view of the valley is always the order of the day. Breakfast includes favourites such as homemade granola, ciabatta French toast, croque-madame, the popular eggs Benedict and even a breakfast pizza.
Good to know The Deli also has a semi-private dining room for birthdays, kitchen teas and other celebrations for up to 24 guests.
Opening times Tuesday – Sunday, 9am – 5pm (breakfast served until 11.30am)
The Deli is also open on Mondays during the year-end school holidays.

    Never know there was so much beautiful farm restaurants and deli’s to pick from in the beautiful Western Cape province. Definitely going to go at least one of them once a month on a weekend. Than you for all this breathtaking views and scenic restaurants.
