Coffee culture is emerging in Cape Town in these past years. I myself have become a little bit of coffee (cappuccino) addict. Only good coffee though.

Here’s the list of recommended strictly halaal restaurants in Cape Town that I have visited in non-alphabetical and non-preferable orders.
This list is not covering the entire strictly halaal restaurants in Cape Town yet, for two reasons: (i) I haven’t been to that particular restaurant recently in the period as mentioned (I need to revisit to see the present quality); (ii) I’ve been to a particular restaurant in such period but don’t like the food or the service. This list will be updated regularly (the newest posting will be on the top of the list), In sha Allah. The restaurants that have got full reviews are clickable in green.
