On the slopes of Vredehoek with Table Mountain's shadow on your back and the beautiful fenced public park Rocklands Rd Park on it's doorstep. Deer Park Cafe specialises in specials. Free range meats and Sassi - approved fish are part of the daily menu blackboard with a great selection of Vegetarian meals. Gluten free and Vegans are easily catered for. Our baker produces a variety of cakes while Kamili Coffee warms up the soul. Great for Breakfast with fresh juices and free range eggs, Lunch and early Dinner has the specials board and a nice but affordable selection of wine. The kids can indulge in Hazelnut hot chocolates and Las Paletas Ice lollies after they have finished their meal. An easy going, family -friendly neighbourhood restaurant where it is easy to become a regular :)
