Places of interest and things to do in Muizenberg

1 Eat 

The beachfront is lined with eateries, including Tiger’s Milk (0217881869), Live Bait (0217882705), Knead (0217882909) and Primi Piatti (0217887130), all with great sea views. You can have all the fancy ice creams you like, but simply the best soft serve is from Majestic Cafe, one of the oldest businesses in the area. It’s been there since 1937, and besides the ice cream, there is so much amazing memorabilia to admire. 0217881433. 

2 Coffee 

“ZA Cafe is Derek Harrison’s baby – a mobile coffee truck that parks outside the artisanal bakery B.rood (0619126542) on Main Road,” says Van Staden. “I often stop for a chin wag and a coffee and then pick up a delicious loaf.” 

Muizenberg is a happening place, and I’ve lived here for more than 30 years. Where else will you find a bridge that eats trucks, the first all-natural cob house to be built in SA or the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences which hosted Stephen Hawking in 2008? I can walk from my flat on to the beach and grab a coffee from a beachfront coffee shop. Nothing better than catching rays, coffee in hand, with a breeze to blow away cobwebs. Okay, sometimes it’s a roaring gale. But that means it’s much cooler than the 30°+ of the City Bowl. – Resident Coleen van Staden with dog Sushi Picture: Supplied

3 Theatre

Decades of association with the Masque Theatre as a performer, director and writer has allowed Van Staden to bring her love of theatre and her love of this area together. “For those who want a fun, unique experience and just a taste of theatre, I run Be An Actor For A Day with my good pal Celia Musikanth at the Masque.” The theatre runs a programme of community and professional productions. 0217886999. 

4 Walk 

Van Staden has recorded a VoiceMap tour of Muizenberg (and recently added a new one for Kalk Bay), which is a great way to explore and learn about the area. “I do a lot of walkabouts. There is always something new and I am so chuffed that Sobeit Studio on Main Road opposite Muizenberg Junior has now opened a retail outlet for their amazing designs,” she says. Call Sobeit on 0217889007, and download VoiceMap from your phone’s app store.
