Sampling Craft Beer in Cape Town
Sampling Craft Beer in Cape Town
Banana Jam Café is tucked away in the quiet village of Kenilworth, just steps from the MetroRail train stop. This restaurant is one of the best destinations for happy hour in Cape Town. Recently, they've become a destination for craft beer drinkers and enthusiasts, with around 10 South African varieties available on tap. For visitors, I recommend getting their sample tray of six varieties to try.

In the winter, a roaring fire provides warmth to the dining room and bathes it in a golden glow. In the summer, the open air garden and outdoor fire pit is the best place to be seated and mingle with locals. The Caribbean flavors in their food pairs well with their beer, and the Trinidad roti is always ordered by more than one person in my dining party. I'm not a vegetarian, but I almost always order their veggie burger: a savory, walnut-based recipe that leaves me craving its unique flavor. If you plan on dining here, their tables fill early on weekends, so it's best to call ahead and arrange a reservation in advance.
