Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden lives up to its reputation as the most beautiful garden in Africa and one of the great botanic gardens of the world. Few gardens can match the sheer grandeur of the setting of Kirstenbosch, against the eastern slopes of Cape Town’s Table Mountain.
Whether you like a full breakfast, great coffee or prefer a tasty pastry or two, the Cape Town Big 7 attractions have something for everyone. Here are the Best Breakfast Spots in Cape Town: Table Mountain Cableway, Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden, Robben Island, V&A Waterfront, Cape Point, City Walk and Groot Constantia.
