About Clay Cafe

The Clay Cafe is a family run business founded in 1999. We have recently moved to a brand new home! This 2.5 acre piece of land is situated in the heart of the valley of Hout Bay. With a large open patio every table is close to the luscious garden and every child is ecstatic with our innovative playground. We have beautiful peaceful outside tables, as well as a veggie garden and our own African chic’ boutique. The Clay Cafe is an ideal day out for a ‘one of a kind’ creative experience. We offer adult and children’s parties (4 years and up), school outings, hen parties and team buildings and of course a delicious menu. All bookings 10 people or less can easily be booked online, hassle free. See below for our services.

Each person is given the chance to indulge in their own personal ceramic masterpiece while they sit back, relax and let us do the rest. We make all our food fresh from scratch everyday, so food is served when ready and is always a hit! We also pick fresh produce from our veggie garden to add into our salads and wraps.

“Thank you to the entire team on duty today in helping make our baby shower party a great success.
Such a unique, affordable concept which allows us to test our creativity in a relaxed atmosphere.”

Samantha Manne

“I highly recommend the Clay Cafe to both young and old looking for a creative outing in a tranquil environment.
I have been there with young children and my grandparents- who equally enjoyed the experience.
Besides the painting experience, there is a big lawn and play area for children, delicious food
and cakes and a boutique store stocking the most exquisite clothes!”

Thank you for making her birthday so special.”

“Have been coming to The Clay Cafe for years and each & every visit is superb. Whether flying solo or coming with a bunch of friends – or even an office group – one always has a fantastic time. To sit and paint creatively, while enjoying brilliant coffee or any of their delicious food, breathing in the fresh Hout Bay air, listening to gentle music, watch kids play freely & safely outside is all absolute bliss! Well done to Chris and her fantastic team!”

Carrie Grant

“Have been a regular and huge fan of Clay Cafe’s for ages and I have to say, the new location is
absolutely amazing! Lush, green grass with a shallow stream for the kids to play, jumping castle, jumping
nets and so much wonderful space! Easy to get to and friendly staff. My kids and I had a blast!!”
