This hip and happening spot in Cape Town is quaint, funky, bustling and just plain fun. At prices that cannot easily be beaten, Characters offers something for everyone, from early morning breakfasts to 'early morning' cocktails.
The menu is extensive and caters for all tastes. With light meals like butternut and blue cheese quiche with onion marmalade and a fresh green salad and tagliatelle with mascarpone, cherry tomatoes, rocket and fresh rosemary you simply cannot go wrong.
Try one of the simple, but tasty sarmies, a delectable pizza or a packed burger if you are not in the mood for too much fuss.
The bar environment is relaxing and bustling at the same time and you can enjoy a cocktail or shooter while checking out dear Marilyn on the wall.
The restaurant hosts quite a few events like speed dating nights, karaoke evenings, DJ evenings and quiz nights, so it is advised to enquire.
To cut a long story short, this is fun!
