This Week I...

...went to Kalk Bay.

A little disclaimer before I start this post. I am the youngest of four children and there are big gaps between us siblings. So while I know my parents love me, there are many things they’ve done and seen before I was born. Therefore by the time I came along, there wasn’t much need to do these things again. For example road trips to exotic places were not high on the list of things to do on a Sunday.

So when I announced to my besties that I think a trip to Kalk Bay was in order, a chorus of “You’ve never been to Kalk Bay” erupted. Yes it’s true, please refer back to the above disclaimer.

This Sunday armed with a whole bunch of cool people, we headed to the vibrant fishing village for some brunch and browsing. After a delish meal and milkshake at The Home of Waffles and Pancakes, we took a stroll through the town.

If unlike me, no one has told you about this gem of a town, I suggest you make your way there. It’s a fabulous mix of restaurants, deli’s, antique shops, vintage shops, d├ęcor/furniture stores and art galleries.

Ex-Oh! Ex-Oh!


  1. it looks amazing! I've been to Kalk Bay but alas, only to the Brass Bell. My next trip to SA definitely has a fresh visit there on the itinerary!

    Great photos :-)

  2. oooh, I went to Kalk Bay for the first time in Dec 09. Loved it!! Had fish at that restaurant that cooks it on the pavement!
    Such fun!

  3. You have never been to Kalk Bay? Don't you like... live in Cape Town?

  4. I lived in Tokai for a year and never been to Kalk Bay (except for Brass Bell and Cape to Cuba) It's definitely on my to do list this summer. (along with Biscuit Mill. Never been. Can you believe it!)

  5. I love the new shoes sign! And it looks like a lovely town! I want to go there now!

  6. Hubby and I had our second evening meal of married life at the Brass Bell all the way back in 1993! Such fond memories of the place, still have the photo's somewhere. Only thing was the underpass under the railway to get to the restaurant wasn't so great, not sure if that's still the way to the pub? Kalk Bay is lovely though. Thanks for bringing back the memories!


Whoop! There It Is!
