Be sure to visit Jenny Morris’s new Cape Town eatery – Yumcious Cafe

Jenny Morris

World Atlas of FoodRenown celebrity chef Jenny Morris, better known as the Giggling Gourmet, has embarked on yet another exciting venture, opening Yumcious Café – a beautiful eatery located in the Cape Quarter in Greenpoint, Cape Town.

Serving breafast, lunch and all things sweet and delectable, this new place is sure to be a Cape Town favourite. The World Atlas of Food author takes a hands on approach to this new venture, so chances are that you’ll get to meet her if you stop by.

Read what one happy patron had to say on Zomato, after visiting the eatery in their second week:

Stopped in for lunch at Chef Jenny Morris’ new restaurant in the Cape Quarter and it did not disappoint. Offering home cooked salads, quiches, fish and meat – buffet style, as well as a variety of bugers. And at R19/kg it is great value. The staff were a little clueless (it is only their 1st week of operation, so this can be excused) but Jenny is on the floor welcoming and chatting to guests. Great weekday work breakfast and lunch option. Sure to be a hit!

Read The Whale Cottage‘s review of Yumcious Café:

Located in the former Rocca and then Celtic Cove restaurants, Chef Jenny and her husband David have brought the bulk of the seating outside onto the covered terrace. Tables are a mix of grey concrete, as well as black top ones with silver bases, while chairs are a mix of grey and white moulded plastic. Tables have grey plant holders with a succulent plant, while the sugar stick holders and salt and pepper holders are green ceramic. Plates for the food match the colour too. Paper serviettes are wrapped around cutlery sets. A clever touch is to have laminated A5 copies of the menu on the table already, so that one does not have to wait for it to be brought to the table.
