Best Healthy Restaurants in Cape Town

Café Frank
Stop by for a range of interesting salads and freshly-squeezed juices. No preservatives or artificial flavourings are used.

Raw, gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options.

Dear Me
Whether you’re celiac, diabetic, lactose- or wheat-intolerant, vegetarian or vegan, Dear Me will have an option for you. (Chef Vanessa Marx is diabetic, so healthy eating is close to her heart.) Check out the Dear Me Pantry for gluten- and sucrose-free treats.

Everything at Lola’s is prepared on the premises – even down to the tomato sauce and the chicken stock – so you know they’re free of nasty chemicals. Meals are light and fresh, with plenty of vegetarian options, and the kitchen is happy to accommodate requests for vegan meals or those with food intolerances.

Kirstenbosch Tea Room
A large variety of interesting salads and dairy-, egg-, gluten- and sucrose-free options are detailed on the menu. You can also ask for free-range eggs (R6 extra).

The Kitchen
Salads here are an event in themselves, so you won’t feel that you’re missing out by eating veg. There’s also something particularly wholesome about the community feeling in Karen Dudley’s store.

Ingredients are organic where possible and free-range. There are vegan and gluten- and wheat-free options, as well as a raw food platter. We hear there are also plans to start a raw food buffet in February.

Maharajah Pure Vegetarian Foods
Around 90% of this vegetarian menu is also vegan, and there are wheat- and dairy-free options available. Most of the ingredients used are low-fat, and the cream is fat-free.

Organic at Heart
This restaurant focuses on organic and ethical dining and features a beautiful 100% organic veggie garden which produces much of the veggies used in salads and other dishes. The menu offers raw food, vegan and vegetarian dishes, as well as meat and chicken - all free range and organic wherever possible. They also cater for those with special dietary needs with gluten free and sugar free alternatives.

Tibetan Teahouse
Maryna Kruger focuses on mindful eating. The menu is about 90% vegan, with 10% of dishes vegetarian. There are plenty of gluten-, wheat- and egg-free options. Ingredients are organic as far as possible, and there is a wide range of organic teas and coffees.

Osumo (Cavendish, Canal Walk and Sea Point)
This small chain focuses on natural food, and there are plenty of low-cal options, from salads to wraps. Eggs and chicken are free-range, and the restaurant makes allowances for lactose, dairy, wheat and sugar intolerances. The menu also indicates which dishes are fat-free, high protein, vegetarian, or contain superfoods.

Choose from a wide selection of fresh salads and vegetarian options, prepared daily. Breakfast and lunch only.

Tortilla Modern Mexican
Order healthy, preservative- and MSG-free fast food. Vegetarian and gluten-free options are available.
