Excellent opportunity to catch up properly with an old friend while keeping the kids safe and entertained in the park. Service had to be nudged on a bit, but the choice of food was good and catered for all our needs (snack, kid's lunch, bug lunch, vegetarian)

We had 2 very nice lunches here. The menu changes regularly (possibly daily) and the food is good quality. There are a few tables outside with shade which lead out to the play park. There are lots of things to do in the park but you definitely need to keep a close eye on toddlers as there's a lot of... More

The service was good and the food could have been better. 4 of our party ordered one of the specials on the lunch chalk board. Five minutes later we were told that one of the low carb side dishes was not available and we were mashed potatoe or wedges😒As an alternative. When the food arrived, the remains sides were left...

I have been a regular at this restaurant for many years (since it first opened in fact) and continue to patronize it and also to bring friends along to introduce them to it. Set on the slopes of Devils Peak it is always easy to find free parking and is reasonably priced (as far as Cape Town restaurants go). Breakfast... More

The cafe has pretty good food for adults and kids. Good falafel and hummus. The big playground can keep kids satisfied for hours and was a lot of fun. My daughter loved this place and I was happy with food, drinks and free wifi. Will come back. Scenic with table mountain in the background.

We ate three meals at Deep Park Cafe during our short week in Cape Town - between the specials board and the attached playground we couldn't resist coming back for more! We visited the city with our two kids, ages 3 and 6, and loved having a place where we could get a good, simple meal and let them run... More

We visited the Deer Park Cafe for our company function, and I have to say I enjoyed the setting and atmosphere here. It is located in a quiet suburb of Cape Town. Plenty of parking. In the gardens there is a fantastic playground for kids, and it also seems to be a popular spot for dog-owners. The food was good,... More
