With its charcoal painted walls, upcycled wooden shop counters and rustic baskets bursting with fresh produce, Chardonnay Deli is a new fixture in the heart of one of Cape Town’s most loved areas. Situated in an historic, renovated building that’s been given a new lease on life care of famed decorator Salome Gunter, Chardonnay Deli is a marriage of rustic style and foodie substance, thanks to the vision of owner Charmaine Lilje.
For people wanting to enjoy Chardonnay Deli’s mouthwatering food at their next party or simply dinner at home without the fuss – the outside catering menu offers plenty of solutions and an extra service of deliveries in the area will be added in the future. As with any true farm stall, the homemade rustic delights beckon at every turn. From their own-label preserves and jams to a cake display groaning with the likes of orange and poppyseed cheesecake and a suitably moist carrot, courgette and coconut cake topped with quirky icing and shards of toasted coconut.
