Cafe Roux: Noordhoek Farm Village
This is a favourite eatery with excellent food and is very pet-friendly. The owners have resident dogs & a potbellied pig that occasionally visit particularly after a good morning walk on the beach!

Easy Dig Cafe: Kommetjie
Another Cafe in a gorgeous garden setting (Harry Goeman’s Nursery on Kommetjie Rd) . The decor and setting are completely relaxing, due to all the beautiful plants to look at in the nursery whilst eating. Not only do they serve water for your pooch all day – they also do an all day breakfast!

Dunes: Hout Bay
This popular Hout Bay Restaurant is a favourite for those with children and pets! Beach, Sand and dogs pair well – add a good seaside restaurant and you have a winner. Festive, fun and very beautiful too! Dogs are well treated and looked after outdoors.
Tel 021 790 1876
Red Herring Restaurant: Noordhoek
The original pub at the Red Herring was named after the local Jack Russell so despite the facelift (awesome) and name change, dogs are still welcomed, given water bowls and made a fuss over in honour of Skebanga. Dogs and beaches go well together so it’s a no-brainer to dine with your dog then walk off your meal on Noordhoek Beach.

Hot tip: Some restaurants are more welcoming than others, but many will let you in – especially in the south peninsula of Cape Town. Call ahead and check whether or not you can bring your dog, as arriving unannounced might lead to a frosty reception. Many establishments may ask that you sit outside and that your dog stays on a leash.
Cape Point Route offers day tours, packages, accommodation, activities and car hire in Cape Town’s south peninsula in addition to teambuilding events in Cape Town. Call 021 789 0093 or visit www.capepointroute.co.za
