Food Philosophy

Welcome to the Café Hemingway's menu, where you will discover a fusion of fine dining & bistro delight. At the heart of Café Hemingway's is the artisan and artisanal food.


Artisan <ahr-tuh-zuh-n> Definition: A person or company that makes a high quality

or distinctive product in small quantities, usually by hand or using

traditional methods.


Our highly experienced chefs are committed to food that is fresh & a menu that is sourced as organically & seasonably as possible. We believe that fresh ingredients & attention to detail make the most delectable food!

Our menu is varied and seasonally based. Our in-store specials change daily depending on what our Chefs source at organic markets. Pop in to see what’s on the daily specials board.


We believe that an enticing dining experience should be exceptional from beginning to end, including the décor, service and drinks. To make this happen at Café Hemingway’s we have worked extensively with local and international specialists to select wines, champagnes and craft beers that will not only enhance your meal, but that will expose you to new and exciting flavours. Our menus have been crafted with the knowledge that each person experiences their drinks in a unique way and as such we have aimed to offer as broad a menu option as possible.

Each wine you see has been specifically selected from only the best regions, farms and vintages to ensure that no matter the wine chosen, the experience will still be authentic and delicious. We bring in new wines from time to time as our team of wine experts are constantly exploring to bring you new and interesting vintages. Café Hemingway’s also holds wine tastings and wine pairing evenings, where each dish is selected to enhance the wine of the night.

 If you are more of a beer drinker, we have just the thing for you. Café Hemingway’s commitment to artisanal thinking extends deep into our craft beer menu, with ranges that are sourced from all over South Africa and beyond. If you have only ever indulged in mass produced beer, then we absolutely insist you take a romp through our individually selected craft beer menu.

Keep an eye out for our craft beer evenings and tasting platters.
