I tend to be a bit of a cynic when it comes to the V-word and for many years, my other half (whom I refer to as “Bae” for sake of his anonymity), and I have chosen not to celebrate. We’re like the Grinches of Valentine’s Day and aim to make every OTHER day V-Day!
BUT – I get requests often for V-Day ongoings in Cape Town. So, in the spirit of being a little more loving this year, here goes:
Balducci’s, V&A Waterfront
The Kind Kitchen, Woodstock
Share your “Bloody Valentines” (their words, not mine!) with us at the 5.30-6.30pm time slot or during the 6.45.745pm time slot (which is their only availability).
Cost is R350 per couple (amazing!) for an 18-piece sushi platter, a bottle of MCC and two chocolate fondants.
Massimo’s, Hout Bay
R390 pp will get you a 3-course vegan meal consisting of a Spanish-style cauliflower starter, or mini Marinara pizza, a choice of a pizza or pasta as your main and date, almond & orange fingers to wrap it all up!
The Raptor Room, City Centre
The Raptor Room is hosting an event called My Queer Valentine.
Dinner: R360pp. To book, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Discounts available for group bookings. Ticket price includes performance, 3-course meal, and welcome bubbly.
Party: R50pp, sold at the door on the night, or email email@example.com to secure yours before the event.
Whole Earth Cafe, Scarborough
Whole Earth Cafe will also be offering a 3-course vegan menu with live music by Fiona Hare and a glass of bubbly on arrival for R370pp. Booking essential. Tel: 021 780 1138 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
VEGAN V-DAY TREATS
Red Rose Vanilla Vegan Cupcakes, Poop Emoji Chocolate Cupcakes w/Love Eyes and (of course) a Vegan Chocolate or Vanilla Unicorn in pink red & white with a rose gold horn! All of these are available from Charly’s Bakery via order by phoning 021 461 5181. These options will also be available in-store on the counters from Tuesday 12th so you can come in and buy or get the folks at Charly’s to ice a few while you wait.
Dolcé Bakery, Observatory
Vegan cakes make to order!
I have SCOURED the internet to try to find VEGAN-SPECIFIC options! Either companies are missing a great opportunity here, or in true Cape Town style, advertising will happen at the final hour!
If you hear of anything via the grapevine, let me know and I will add the info to this post so we everyone has more options xx
