#HighburyHearsYou – we at Cape Town Etc are passionate about getting local restaurants back and booming in business. As part of our #HighburyHearsYou initiative, we’re dishing out the deets on some incredible restaurants in and around town.

The Shop, founded in November 2017 is a small family-owned business based in Seapoint that offers a seasonal menu, supporting small scale farmers by buying fresh ingredients from them.

In October 2019, the restaurant won the Eat Out Best Bistro award, with February 2020 being their best month yet where good business and trade was made, but the restaurant took a massive toll due to COVID-19. It is a whole year later and the restaurant is still fighting daily to remain open.
