Hey. I’m a new here, and looking for some vegan food. Do you know of any good places?

Read 18:10

Of course! What are you willing to spend on a meal? I have a few options. From R50 to R120 a meal.

I don’t mind. What’s closest? I can try them all, as I’m in Cape Town for a few days.

Well, let’s start with Plant Café. It’s about 2km from where you currently are. Is this where you’ll be staying for the next few days?

Yeah. Sounds great.

Plant Café
Vegan restaurant offering breakfast such as power oatmeal and tofu scramble wrap; lunch burger, wrap, and a buddha box of tofu...

What I’ll do is send you a new place everyday if you like?

That would be great - thanks.

No problem. If there’s anything else that you’d like a hand with in Cape Town, let us know.
