Where to Enjoy Breakfast Along the West Coast
If you’re looking for a seaside breakfast, then look no further than the West Coast. It’s only a 20-minute drive from the centre of Cape Town and you can greet the day by inhaling the salt air, digging your toes into the soft sand and taking in one of the best views in the world. We round up few places to have breakfast along the West Coast.
I Love Melkies
What’s not to love about this place. Neatly positioned along the strip of restaurants along Beach Road, Melkies is always abuzz. Guests are always returning for their pizzas and if you think you can’t eat pizza for breakfast, think again. For the not so adventurous there are classic breakfast options available.

Damhuis Beach Restaurant
On the shores of Melkbosstrand lies this little gem. Throughout the restaurant there is a strong fisherman’s village theme, at times you may believe yourself to be further west than Melkbos. There’s even a whole dedicated section where parents and kids can dine.

Onse Huisie, ‘Our Little Home’ in Afrikaans, is a picturesque spot set on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, with Robben Island and Table Mountain in view. What we love is that the entire restaurant is kid friendly, the entire restaurant! Scenery and playground aside, the breakfast will leave you singing; try the Tomato filled with Onion and Feta, served with eggs and salmon. Once completely stuffed enjoy a stroll along the coast.

French-inspired bistro meets West Coast cuisine. The quaint building is a heritage site where one can imagine the first settlers coming to our shores 200-years ago. Flavours are abundant with Mediterranean influences like the signature breakfast – a wedge of grilled polenta topped with gorgonzola, thyme and mushroom sauce. But there are also firm South African flavours like the pap and cheddar corn cake topped with spinach, pan-fried mushrooms, tomato relish, crispy bacon bits, two fried eggs and grilled corn.
