The Power & the Glory

15 Apr , 2015  

What happens when you mix a relaxed day-time cafe with a buzzing nightclub? The Power and the Glory, that’s what.

Small and humbly decorated with vintage finds, hanging plants and understated furniture, the cafe serves up a mean cuppa paired with a delicious breakfast or pastry during the day, following which you can abandon the formalities and move to Black Ram next door. P&G has become renowned in Cape Town for their hot dogs (served on a salted pretzel zig-zagged with tomato sauce and mustard), that can be washed back with a local craft beer. The bar is split from the cafe, so order your goods separately. For the hungry, we recommend the roast beef sandwich, served between two fresh slices of sourdough and lathered with Dijon mustard. And a hot dog of course. Mmm…

P&G opened several years ago and its popularity has never waned. Attracting the more alternative crowd, it’s a ramshackle mix of people day and night, from budding first dates to rowdy friends clad in hats and hipster spectacles. We just love it.

Wine is reasonably priced (R30 to R50 a glass), as is craft beer at the usual R30 to R35. You’ll pay a bit more for spirits, but the selection is fresh and varied. It’s an easy place to catch a round or two after work, or the place to start a good night’s proceedings.

If you happen to see the two of us at P&G devouring a hotdog and imbibing our usual beer and glass of wine, do come say hi. Next round will be on us. The Power and The Glory 16
