Sipping on summer at Sunset Café
Posted: 01 March 2017
Little sister to the V&A Waterfront’s Mondiall Kitchen & Bar, Sunset Café epitomises the Camps Bay culture with a vibrant eatery that caters to the sundowner set. Small in size but more than ample in atmosphere, the café features a pavement terrace where patrons can people-watch, enjoy the antics of street performers or simply soak up the sunshine. If you have a larger party, head indoors to the lounge area, which includes the elegant marble-topped tables so loved at Mondiall. The cocktail menu is varied, with a selection of signature drinks and contemporary recipes created exclusively for Sunset Café by Devin Cross, mixologist ambassador for ABV Brands. We sampled the L’Aperitivo Spritz – a refreshing twist on the classic Prosecco-based aperitif – and The Great Ascent – a gin-based cocktail combined with kombucha and a punchy hit of ginger. And there's more on offer than the drinks, with Sunset Café's delicious light meal and snack options. We enjoyed the Sunset Salad with apple, Gorgonzola and walnuts, the wafer-thin Springbok carpaccio and their signature Sunset Burger, whose spiced Angus beef patty is a serious contender to Mondiall’s famous Wagyu beef version. They also serve fresh breakfasts and all-day West Coast oysters paired with a bubbly of your choice. The staff is friendly and there is a relaxed atmosphere that aids in uninterrupted relaxation. Situated just below the Bay Hotel, Sunset Café is a stylish central meeting place that blends luxurious finishes with a beach-friendly attitude. A must-visit in summertime, we also can’t wait to see what they have in store for the cooler months. Visit mondiall.co.za/Sunset-Cafe for more.
