Named for the surrounding dockyards and located within view of the picturesque tugboat moorings and the waters of Cape Town harbour, The Yard is an exciting new hybrid concept store-cum-bistro-bar that is set to become the go-to retail and dining experience of the recently launched Silo District at the V & A Waterfront.
There’s a retail zone featuring curated displays of urban-friendly homeware and accessories, which merges seamlessly with a delicatessen purveying fine chocolates, preserves, charcuterie, home-made pasta, and farm-fresh cheeses. The deli also incorporates a food-on-the-go section with an array of smoothies, and house-made iced teas and flavoured water, as well as Rosetta Roastery Coffee. It’s ideal for grabbing a quick cuppa, a bite at lunchtime, or powering up after a workout.
Just alongside the deli and coffee bar, is a fresh salad and warm buffet section with an offering, which changes daily. The buffet is located adjacent the main bar, and here, the beautiful marble and copper bar counters provide the perfect spot to enjoy after-work drinks and snacks with friends.
What’s more, if you’re looking for a refined and upscale tasting experience, there is a fine dining section that will be open for lunch and dinner. The flavourful menu will excite many palettes as it flawlessly spans world cuisine, paying homage to Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, Oriental and Indian influences.
