Set at the foot of Ou Kaapse Weg, with a view that encompasses mountain and vineyards and one of the most striking architectural additions to Cape Town in recent years, the sculpture garden at Norval Foundation is a great place for a summer picnics from The Skotnes Restaurant.
The family-friendly picnic hampers are ordered ahead of time, and the price includes admission to Norval Foundation’s museum and gallery spaces. Visitors can expect to find baskets of fresh, local and seasonal produce – in keeping with the Skotnes’ philosophy of supporting local, small-batch food suppliers. Baskets also include a range of desserts made by our in-house pastry chef.
As well as take-away coffee and a delectable range of Italian gelato, the Kiosk is the quick and easy way to grab a bite to eat while exploring The Sculpture Garden at Norval Foundation.
The Skotnes only takes 5 picnic bookings a day, so expect an intimate, curated offering with lots of privacy, overlooking the museum and sculpture garden. No crowds, no deli fridges, everything is prepared in advance.
Those looking to “pop the question” – be sure to email firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire about their proposal packages, which includes a night’s stay in The Apartment at Norval Foundation, and a champagne breakfast the next day.
There are also special picnic bags that are packed especially for children, so everyone gets their own picnic basket.
Pre-ordering is essential. No outside picnics are permitted to be brought in.
