Fabulous Salads, Legendary Love Sandwiches


The Kitchen is a bustling eatery and catering company in Cape Town.

Famous for its array of Salads, Love Sandwiches and perfect treats, it draws a loyal community of locals and visitors from all over the world.

Honey Mustard Sausages, Burghlers and Falafels, Almond Croissants and excellent coffee from Rosetta Roastery are every day staples.

The lunch rush begins at around 11.30am and ends around 2.00pm.  Being small and very busy, we cannot take lunch bookings but arriving closer to noon is good: most of the 20 Salads are out, service is fast and seats are available.
