Places of interest and things to do in Tamboerskloof

1 Eat 

The Blue Café in Barlow Road (0214260250) is a local institution, as is the Miller’s Thumb restaurant on Kloof Nek Road (0214243838). Beleza, also on Kloof Nek, is popular for well-priced Portuguese and Italian food, and Tamboerskloof is within easy reach of a string of restaurants, coffee shops, bars and boutiques down Kloof Street in neighbouring Gardens. At the intersection of Kloof Nek and Kloof is a cluster of diverse restaurants including The Power & The Glory (0214222108) and Kyoto Garden Sushi (0214222001). 

2 Drink 

The rooftop bar at Cloud 9 has been voted the number one bar in its category by Cape Town Magazine. The bar has a 360-degree view of the city, Table Mountain and Lion’s Head. 0214241133 

Once I park my car at the end of the day or week I can walk to most places I want to visit – to the shops, restaurants, or walk with my dogs to De Waal Park. I climb Lion’s Head or run to the gym at Wembley, and walk to the Mount Nelson Hotel for a drink. I also walk into the city with friends on “First Thursdays” through the Mount Nelson Hotel and Company’s Garden. I love the sense of community from all different age groups who create a magnificent buzz. – Albert Coetzee has lived in Tamboerskloof since 2013. He chose the area because it is close to the CBD but has a suburban feel. Picture: Supplied
