After reading about how awesome Open Door is on One Modern Mom's blog, I showed it to a friend and we decided that we had no plans for breakfast this past Sunday and that it was the perfect place and time to go! I had to tell you about it in my Open Door Restaurant review score card!
Open Door is situated in Constantia between beautiful vineyards with a gorgeous mountain view. Staying in the city we don't often get to visit that side of Cape Town, so when we parked and saw the bike park for kids I was so amazed at all the activities going on. Open Door itself has the perfect little play park for kids which is fenced right round and the kids cant really go anywhere.
They have a lovely outdoor veranda where you can keep an eye on your kid, or if you want some peace and quite (without kids) they have gorgeous blue couches inside for a more comfortable dining option. I love the interior, and it reminded me of the time we had breakfast in Amsterdam at Blushing (see here). Open Door has quirky but fancy crockery which makes it so much different to anywhere I have dined before. I love the cups they serve coffee in, and yes the coffee is amazing (they serve deluxe coffee).
I would love to go back and have dinner at Open Door, hopefully sometime soon!
Open door restaurant opened its doors in 2014 and operates as a restaurant and tasting room. It is nestled on the Constantia Uitsig Farm between beautiful vineayrds and views of the mountain and Tokai Forest. The restaurant has a gorgeous interior catering for all tastes and ages.
