De Waterkant, Cape Town

About Take time with the Times

Ease your way into the warmth of a Cape morning with a copy of the Cape Times newspaper hot off the press alongside an over easy egg breakfast, hot from the kitchen. Get your breaking news at daybreak on a cobbled corner in De Waterkant; fork in one hand, folded local press print in the other and a rotation ritual for buttering your toast.

1. Take in today's headlines and tomorrow's rumours from a historic area nestled below Signal Hill.
2. Acquisition a chair position of your choice while reading the policies of those with a seat in parliament.
3. Enjoy a morning munch home-made from the fresh local market ingredients while analysing the global markets.
4. Take stock of the spectacular South African scenery as you check on the share prices.
5. Get a handle on company trends with a cappuccino handle in easy reach.
6. Absorb the views of world presidents in view of Robben Island, once home to Nelson Mandela.
7. Assess embargoes and shipping news watching the cargo carriers enter the harbour from international waters.
8. Cast your eyes on the Cape horizon and predict the cloud formations while checking out the weather snaps.
9. Catch the moon as it exits day skies and see what fortune your horoscope brings.
10. Track the horse-racing results as the mountain's shadow retracts over the city.
11. Tackle the sports pages together with a coffee refill.
12. Feel like the back page stars as you shamelessly delight in the latest celebrity scandal while sipping your roasted blend from behind a pair of proudly over-sized sunglasses.
13. Complete a Sudoku grid at the table contemplating the sequence away from grid-lock, starring across breathtaking Table Bay.
14. Trade the perused cartoon page with a smile for a fellow diner's perspective on forthcoming attractions.

Pick up the morning paper and pick out a breakfast spot at the local village deli.
