smak delicatessen was founded on the belief that great food doesn’t have to be complicated. The kitchen is led by head chef, Divan Snyman, who has been a part of the smak family from its very beginning.

Katia and the rest of the team pride themselves on serving high quality consistent dishes using only the freshest ingredients Cape Town has to offer. The seasonal menu changes often, with firm favourites available all year round.

On the menu at smak, you’ll find a variety of breakfast and lunch options as well as delicious pastries and cakes in our deli window.
Our “salted butter caramel cheesecake” is a famed favourite and we encourage you to try it!
