The Power & the Glory

13D Kloof Nek Rd, Gardens, Cape Town, 8001, South Africa

Beards, Beer, and Brownies in Cape Town

The Power and the Glory is a cool bistro in the center of Cape Town that has attracted a cult following among locals. The relaxed style, the bearded staff, the folding chairs, and the sidewalk stools may remind you of a Brooklyn cafe. If you can snag a chair, it makes for a great place to work or to have a meeting over a light breakfast. In the evening, the place is usually packed with revelers. Try the quiche in the morning, the pretzel bun hot dog in the evening, and the Nutella cheesecake for dessert.

The Power & the Glory

It’s easy to spend a day at the Power & the Glory, run by restaurateur Adam Whiteman. Mornings bring the city’s best flat white; five o’clock, prime people-watching and glasses of local rosé; and nights, cocktails at P&G’s semi-hidden bar, the Black Ram.—Mary Holland

Go for the Coffee, Stay for the Wine

Local cool-kid hangout The Power and the Glory is one of those coffeshops that serves excellent single-origin coffee by day and then slowly transitions to a wine bar with pours from nearby vineyards. Don't miss the co-owned Hallelujah next door, which serves excellent pan-asian tapas (duck tacos in ramen shells, spicy coriander shrimp buns).
