If you’re looking for a fabulous new foodie spot to try in Cape Town then you’ll be thrilled to hear that the clever sausages who brought you Mischu The Coffee Showroom and Byblos Trading Co. have just launched a brand new restaurant in Sea Point! Boasting an extensive menu of delicious, traditional Lebanese breakfasts and lunches, Rafael joins a long list of fabulous new restaurants to try in Sea Point.

With a breakfast menu focusing on well-known dishes such as man’ouche (flatbread topped with za’atar) and filled pita breads, Rafael offers something a little bit different from its Atlantic Seaboard neighbours. But if you’re not in the mood to branch out and try something different then fear not because the spot also offers tasty standard English-style breakfasts for the less-adventurous.

For lunch, diners can tuck into a small a la carte menu with options like ready-made deli dishes such as tabbouleh salads, falafel wraps, and fresh hummus platters. Freshly made Lebanese dips and sweets are also available as deli takeaways.

As for drinks, try something new with a selection of unique drinks like Turkish apple tea and traditional Lebanese and Turkish coffee. Mischu coffee is also on the menu, as well as standard drinks for those who prefer a classic thirst quencher.

Rafael can be found on the corner of Ellis and Main Road in Sea Point. For more information say Hi to Rafael on Facebook.
