Went for another stroll through Cape Town today. Stopped for breakfast at Jason's Bakery on Bree Street, check out his website here - http://goo.gl/ySe8l. I had an amazing cranberry Danish, check out the picture below that does it no justice, and one of the best cappuccinos this city has to offer. Next we went to trawl the innumerable bookstores of Long Street....this all begs the question, where your most inspiring place in Cape Town?

We all know about the famous Café de Flore in Paris, that has played host to literary greats such as Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir and Albert Camus. Yet being here in sunny South Africa means that we cannot sit on the corner of the Boulevard Saint-Germain and muse about life and her meanings, no we have to make do with the likes of the lovely Honest Chocolate Shop and the Yours Truly Cafe.
