Located right in between Sea Point’s busy main road and bustling promenade, this gem boasts a casual sophistication that’ll complement any trip to the area. It’s an excellent spot to pop in for a coffee, enjoy a meal, or share a few cocktails as the sun goes down. Better still, it’s a spot the whole family can enjoy. While you take advantage the bar, your kids can hang out in the play area – and surely everyone will appreciate being able to overlook the pool area and the sea at the same time.
Though the area is home to more cafes and restaurants than a single foodie could enjoy in one visit, Strolla has an airy and relaxed atmosphere that’s often lacking in the spots along the main road. It’s a wonderful way to dine outside in the fresh air without having to travel out of the city. Not to mention, the staff are friendly and accommodating.
Their menu is vast, offering a wide variety of options for those who enjoy meat and seafood. As a site that endorses a plant-based lifestyle, however, we would be remiss if we didn’t mention that when it comes to vegan food, their menu lacks variety. That being said, their vegan stir fry with crispy tofu really does hit the spot, whether you’re actually a strict vegan or not, and it comes in a generous portion. Add a couple of cocktails to the mix and you have the perfect summer afternoon!
The space is massive, sprawling out onto the patio, and into the pool area, and though you probably won’t need a reservation, if you want a spot up on the deck it might be best to give them a call.
Next time you’re ambling along the Sea Point promenade and realise you could do with a bite, a coffee or a beer, pop in to Strolla and enjoy this seaside delight for yourself. Stay tuned to our reviews page for more Cape Town Hot Spots in 2021.
