Devil’s Peak Taproom

Our recent visit to the Devil’s Peak Taproom was a bitter-sweet one. Normally, when all four of us bru’s get together for a burger night it’s with a view to putting life’s issues behind us and just getting down to eating, drinking, and talking a whole bunch of unadulterated crap. This time, the night was...

Obz Cafe

Obs! Just saying the word (or not quite a word, but rather the shortened name of the suburb) will conjure up many a memory for different generations of Capetonians. If there is one street which is the heartbeat of Obs, it’s Lower Main Rd. On this street you will find all that is unique about...

Van Hunks Restaurant & Bar

In what has seemed like an age, the bru’s of Burger Brews were back at it on a breezy but pleasant Thursday evening. Our choice of venue, for our latest review, was Van Hunks. Situated near the top end of Kloof Rd, Van Hunks enjoys a superb location with its large open deck in full...

Woodstock Grill & Tap – Woodstock

Our latest foray into the wonderful domain of Cape Towns’ burger and craft beer offerings took us to the rejuvenated suburb of Woodstock. Situated in Albert Rd, Woodstock Brewery is home to Woodstock Grill & Tap. Having firmly established themselves as a serious player in the local craft beer industry, we were hopeful that the...

Redemption – Long Street

I had first heard of Redemption when being told by someone a while ago how good “this burger place” at the Old Biscuit Mill was. She was someone in the trade who knew what constituted a good burger so, ever since that conversation, I had been eager to try them out for myself. Two of...

Jerry’s Burger Bar – Kloof Branch

Having been to the different Jerry’s restaurants a good number of times before, we thought it only fitting to re-visit their Gardens branch (situated in Park Rd, off Kloof), this time with our Burger Brews goggles on. It was an exciting occasion as it was the night before one of the bru’s was set to...

Jakes on the Common – Noordhoek

After what has seemed like an age, the bru’s of Burger Brews were back doing what we do best – eating burgers, drinking beers, and then telling you what we think! This time, at the behest of one of the bru’s who lives in Noordhoek, we made the trek into the deep south and visited...

Café Extrablatt – Green Point

Café Extrablatt, which is situated near the top of Somerset Rd in Green Point, had the bru’s visiting it on yet another Thursday night. On arrival, we were disappointed to see that we were one of only two tables seated in the restaurant. We didn’t let that disappointment get in the way of good banter,...

Craft Burger Bar – Sea Point

Let me start off this review by saying that any restaurant offering only one, yes 1, type of cuisine ONLY will not last very long if it does not do it consistently well. The fact that Craft has been around at this location for almost 5 years tells a story. We, at Burger Brews, felt…

Perseverance Tavern

If you are reading this having never heard of Perseverance Tavern, where have you been for the last 210 years?! This establishment, officially recognised as the oldest pub in South Africa, opened in 1808. It began as a place to stay for travellers disembarking from ships at Cape Town’s Castle and received its official wine…
