Tibetan treats!

5 Posted on 08 / 01 / 2012

Truly delicious food, with an extensive vegan menu that includes only two or three vegetarian, rather than vegan, items. The dessert menu is entirely vegan. The butternut squash soup with herb bread was filling and tasty, and the vegan chocolate cake and apple pie with soya ice cream was similarly delicious! The staff were very attentive and eager to help, and the views of the sea cannot be beaten. Would recommend to any vegan.

Fantastic food

5 Posted on 02 / 24 / 2012

My boyfriend and I were on holiday in Cape Town and visited Sophea Gallery and Tibetan Teahouse while on a road trip to the Cape of Good Hope. The food was fabulous and the majority of the menu is vegan. There is so much to choose from but the apple pie and chocolate cake in particular were outstanding. The staff were lovely and very accommodating. I'd highly recommend this place.

Pros: Vegan food, Excellent food, Good value

A space filled with blessings

Sophea Gallery and Tibetan Teahouse is one of my most loved places. I'm always greeted with a smile at the door and made to feel extremely welcome. The wonderful positive energy of the owners Anna and Maryna permeates the space in its entirety. The food - and amazing vegan cakes - are delicious and one can feel with how much love it's been made. There's something for everyone, from the hearty and filling Sherpa Stew (lentil balls with mashed potato all covered in a tasty tomato and onion relish) and the enormous, delectable, home-made lentil burger to wonderful curries and rice dishes. If you still have space - like I force myself to have - you can finish it off with a double slice of vegan chocolate cake (topped with vegan cream!) or the scrumptious vegan apple pie, all washed down with a lovely cup of vegan chai tea served in a wooden Tibetan cup (vegetarian options available too). But it's not just the yummy food that makes it special. Eating at - or just browsing through - the Teahouse and gallery is definitely a healing experience. The place just has amazing energy. Oh and they also do singing bowl meditations in the lovely yellow room just off the restaurant. Check their website for details of the meditations and talks they have there. They also sell the most beautiful jewellery and arts from Nepal and the spiritual art gallery supports local South African artists. I'll recommend it to anyone who wants a lovely, and lovingly home-cooked vegetarian/vegan meal and is looking to leave feeling fabulous.

Pros: Wonderful energy, Delectable Food, Healing space

Nourishment for the Soul

I LOVE Tibetan Teahouse! Every visit is a joy! Anna & Maryna are incredibly special people. They provide excellent food, with attentive yet unobtrusive service in the most tranquil setting. Above the hustle and bustle of the main road, Tibetan Teahouse is a true sanctuary for the soul. Once through the front door, you immediately feel at peace. So many visual delights in the gallery and shop, coupled with really delicious food! We always find an excuse to drive out to Simonstown for a visit!

Pros: Warm and Friendly, Peaceful retreat, Consistently good

My favourite vegetarian restaurant in Cape Town! Set in a house, within a gallery. Very comfortable and homey. Great menu with hearty dishes including breakfasts, lentil dishes, burgers and really tasty vegan Cakes! Cats come to visit while you are eating. Art and jewellery sold all over the house. Wonderful place.

Peaceful vegetarian food

The teahouse serves lovely, hearty food. The setting is one of serenity and reverence, with a meditation room and a beautiful view of the bay. Very close to Boulders beach - a good spot to eat before/after visiting the famous penguin beach. Delicious vegan options, including vegan chocolate cake and their own home made soya chai tea served in little wooden cups. Yum.

Pros: Delicious food, Reasonably priced
Cons: Not child-friendly
