Last week The Pottery opened next door to Dizzy’s on The Drive in Camps Bay, after a much-needed renovation of the space, which served as Dizzy’s Bar for many years. Two of the three owners of The Pottery live in Camps Bay, and have promised that at least one of them will be at the restaurant at any time.
Camps Bay is the fourth The Pottery branch to open, other branches being in George, Ballito, and Jeffrey’s Bay.
The food and beverage offering is limited but its quality and pricing is excellent, a bonus for Camps Bay locals.

When Firefly Café opened in Camps Bay just over a year ago, I was apprehensive about the future of the coffee shop, its service levels being variable, it taking me more than three months to write a review, feeling more confident about its future.
When co-owner Herman Bezuidenhout, who was often in the Café and with whom I enjoyed chatting, left Firefly Café and sold his shares to his business partner Luzaane Spoelstra, my confidence dropped to rock bottom and I did not return for at least four months, until a week ago! What a bad mistake it was! Continue reading →
