Working at Pomegranite means a multitude of things. One of these things is that we work really hard, another is that we are located at the top of Wale Street in the city center (a prime spot for most of our gustatory requirements). Eating amazing food makes us happy and gives us something to look forward to. And yes, sometimes we have second lunch. With all of this in mind, here are our top five lunch spots:

Siblings Bistro – 142 Buitengracht Street

Toasted cheese, tomato and onions on a choice of white, rye or sourdough. Sumptuous potato wedges all topped off with a drizzle of balsamic reduction.

This toasted treat is a definite winner for 3 reasons:

  1. It is so yummy! All of us just love it and manage the humungous portions just fine.
  2. It is around the corner from our office.
  3. Balsamic reduction.

Food Lover’s Market – 122 St Georges Mall

Sandwiches, giant pizza slices, fresh salads and fresh rolls. Food Lover’s Market is our go to for a delicious, mostly healthy lunch. This Food Lover’s is spacious and well-laid out. There are tables to sit at to eat your lunch and the till system is super-efficient despite the major influx of people at lunch time.

Elixir Café – 120 Bree Street

Home-made vegan chickpea curry rooti.

This rooti makes us feel loved and nourished. It is jam-packed with veggies and delicious chutney. Our advice: just go and try it!

Earth Fair Food Market – St Georges Mall (every Thursday from 12pm to 6pm)
