Company Gardens: Slightly neglected, but a great way to approach the South African Museum. Children love chasing hordes of pigeons and fighting off tame squirrels.
Kloof Street for restaurant, bars and coffee shops. Manna: great for long lunches Gainsborough: nice for breakfast Shelley's: wonderful fresh salads. Also had a great lentil bobotie there. Cafe Paradiso: what a view!
If you are in Kloof Street and fancy having your hair done, try Tyler's. Great service,great roof terrace, great chatting.
