Four Rosmead

Oranjezicht, Cape Town, South Africa


Breakfast at Four Rosmead is a sumptuous buffet laid out in the cosy, art-filled breakfast room, and which you can take to the garden-facing terrace. As good as any brunch, it will include freshly baked bread, muffins and scones, a jug of freshly squeezed juice and a second one of chilled water with sprigs of mint, and homemade ‘bircher’ muesli with extra bowls of seeds and stewed fruits. There will also be platters of cold meats and cheeses, eggs to order, and a daily 'special' like corn fritters, waffles, pancakes or perhaps stuffed mushrooms.

Lunches aren't prepared at Four Rosmead but you're welcome to have a light lunch delivered by the Liquorice and Lime deli; their menu includes salads, pasta dishes, sandwiches, pies, quiches and flame-grilled burgers.

You could also have supper delivered from one of Four Rosmead’s recommended take-aways, but with so many great restaurants close by, most guests prefer to eat out. And despite our late night request (on a Saturday night no less) staff managed to get us a table at Savoy Cabbage, one of the trendiest local eateries. We still talk about the stuffed rabbit leg and vanilla risotto, not to mention the bow-tied sommelier, who made it our most memorable Cape Town restaurant outing.

Save to favouritesPrintMailFour RosmeadHidden away in the leafy suburb of Oranjezicht in the lee of Table Mountain, with wraparound views of the city and the bay, this century-old listed building was revamped by its art-loving owner to create one of Cape Town's most stylish boltholes. Many original features like the Oregon pine floors, porthole windows and fireplaces were conserved; while striking new elements include an angular wood and steel loggia which spans out above the garden terrace. Flowerbeds of raked gravel, neatly tended rosemary hedges, and a decked salt-water pool and fishpond induce a Zen mood of studied calm in the garden. Step inside and it's more upbeat, with jazzy African paintings and sculptures in the sun-filled lounge and 8 classy rooms adding zest and colour to the building's airy, elegant lines. To add to this architectural delight, any request to the quietly professional staff at Four Rosmead will be dealt with promptly, and any thanks will be acknowledged with one word: pleasure. We couldn’t think of a better way to describe what our stay here was filled with.
