Located near the famous brightly colored Bo-Kaap houses, this nondescript streetside cafe serves Cape Malay favorites like koeksisters, a donut-like sweet coated in coconut, and masala mince shakshuka. At the center of a suburb with a storied and, at times, painful history, Bo-Kaap Deli is a reminder of the rich culture and cuisine the Cape Malay community brought to the city. Grab a spot at one of the many picnic tables on the curb and watch locals go about their day while an endless stream of tourists blocks the road to take pictures of the rainbow of houses.
