Giulio’s is more than just a corner café for the passing crowd, it is a place of comfort. A long time dream and personal passion gave Giulio, owner and creator, the drive he needed to pack his bags and leave sunny South Africa to learn from his long time hero – Jamie Oliver. After completing word in London at a bustling Jamie Oliver café he returned home to open what is now one of the most beautiful and popular cafes in Cape Town. This is a place of total indulgence and simple beauty.
