About Pajamas and Jam Eatery

Such an enchanting little retreat as Pajamas and Jam comes up quite unexpectedly in the industrial area of Somerset West, alongside a scrap metal collection centre and under the shade of a massive roof-perched helicopter. From the moment you stumble upon this little oasis, you can be sure of one thing – nothing is a given.

This warm, inviting bakery and bistro is simultaneously charming and trendy, with no shortage of little surprises in every nook and cranny. Pajamas and Jam combines amazing food (in surprisingly generous proportions) with excellent coffee, good music and a treasure trove of antiques and classic keepsakes.

The menu comprises impressive breakfasts; including a more-than-hearty breakfast burger, berry flapjacks, and a slice of ciabatta bread with baked eggs, chorizo, feta and spinach. Lunches are no less impressive. Whether you are really hungry or just a little peckish, the menu (which is dynamic and changes to include the freshest ingredients and the chef’s delightful innovations) will certainly have something just perfect for you. There are also several banting options available. Coffees and baked goodies are equally tempting. Try the retro coffee cake, decadent chocolate and berry cake, traditionally rich croissants, and fresh home-baked breads.

The décor is eclectic; combining some old-school South African features (like doilies) with modern materials and trendy pieces. It is busy, giving patrons plenty to see and a great opportunity to shop after your meals and coffee. The antique store is brimming with gems for young and old, men and women, décor enthusiasts or those who simply love all things cool.

Somerset West is just outside Cape Town, which is the capital city of the Western Cape Province. As such, it is central and easily accessible while remaining a small town in its own rights. It is also within close proximity to the Cape Town International Airport, as well as to all of the facilities and amenities of the Mother City, one of the world’s top tourist destinations.
