Melissa’s, The Food Shop, has come to Joburg. Finally. And if you’re anywhere near Parkhurst, then please help yourself to a large slice of one of the Cape’s most adored institutions in food. Melissa’s is famous for packaged deli goods: jams, preserves, meringues, biscuits and traditional sweets like turkish delight and fudge. The shop is also wonderful for flowers and a superbly curated collection of kitchenalia, books, gifts and ceramics. It goes without saying, the coffee and breakfast buffet is worth getting out of bed for on a Saturday morning.

Joburg people, what are you doing tomorrow then? Good.
