out & about – Four&Twenty cafe and pantry


if you’re in the Cape Town area and haven’t yet visited the scrumptious Four&Twenty Café in the quaint Chelsea Village of Wynberg, then I’d suggest you make a plan to do so! It’s one of my favourite places to go and the menu, ambience and pantry goods will certainly put this friendly café on the Cape Town go-to restaurant list.


We all have dreams right? Well, two classically trained Grande Diploma Cordon Bleus chefs took a dream that was born at the foot of the Eiffel Tower – over a box of macarons – and made it into a delicious reality. With the resolute objective to create every single bite in their café a celebration of good, wholesome and truly delectable food, the lovely ladies behind Four&Twenty have created a Parisian gem in the heart of Chelsea Village.

The Four&Twenty Café is accompanied by a pantry of local produce, home-made deli items, artisanal pantry-fillers, fresh daily pastries and hand-crafted confectionery. And I am so delighted that you can find The Chop Shop Onion Marmalade, my home made sticky relish, on the shelves too!

So next time you find yourself in the Southern Suburbs, remember to take a turn through Chelsea Village and pop into Four&Twenty Café for something delicious to eat – and don’t forget to buy a jar of my onion marmalade on your way out!

    My first visit and I loved it. Super fresh produce, amazing flavours. Only criticism- one of our party ordered a new item, the raspberry dipper, and although she thoroughly enjoyed it was a bit disappointed by the fact that even though it was from the “light” menu it was a bit too light. Nevertheless, we will be back.

      I’m so pleased you enjoyed it, Naomi! Their portion sizes are normally quite generous, but I hope you let them know – they are quite happy for feedback about their food.
