Modern look and menu at the Cableway’s new Café

Table Mountain Aerial Cableway has launched an up-to-date, café-style restaurant, the Table Mountain Café, to replace its previous eatery, the Restaurant on Top.

Improvements include a new look interior; a more cosmopolitan atmosphere and a trendier, more varied menu to cater to the changing demands of the Cableway’s visitors.

The Cableway is committed to conserving sustainable resources and reducing man’s carbon footprint on the environment. To conserve water they have introduced bio-compostable plates and containers for food instead of regular, washable plates. The new plates and containers are 100% compostable and within several weeks turn into water, carbon dioxide and compost. These plates and containers are currently being used at the Table Mountain Café.

Visitors can snack on freshly baked pastries and sip frothy cappuccinos or indulge in hearty breakfasts, gourmet pizzas and tasty hamburgers. Healthy baguettes and traditional Cape fare also feature on the revised menu.  The new menu is Halaal-friendly, which means that all meat is Halaal; no pork products are available or used; and alcohol is not used in the preparation of food.  All changes meet the internationally accepted Environmental Management System requirements and guidelines, which Table Mountain Aerial Cableway is committed to.

“We are delighted to offer our visitors an updated and improved Café. The Cableway experience is significantly enhanced by a Café that offers local food flavours to complement the stunning view, “said Sabine Lehmann, CEO of the Cableway.

While enjoying the remarkable 360-degree aerial view of Cape Town, visitors can sit under the new shaded area and enjoy drinks and an array of fine wines. Visitors can also create their own gourmet picnic hamper with options that include fresh sushi platters, South African cheese boards and various light meals. Delicious kiddies meals are also available.

The new Café can accommodate 110 visitors indoors and another 100 visitors outside under new shaded canopies.

The cast-glass chandelier in the centre of the Café was specially commissioned to glass artists, Nelius Britz and Abraham Le Roux, of the Cape Glass Studio. The light consists of natural-looking shards of glass and was inspired by the ever-changing sunset colours and reflections of earth and sky, as well as the neutral, mauve and amber tones in the surrounding Table Mountain Café.

The Café closes 30 minutes before the last cable car goes down.
