Its been long. And there are numerous reasons why. Actual reasons – not ones that don’t count like: I didn’t know what to write about; or I was just so gloriously busy.
No, none of that. I just bought a restaurant. So, I mean I haven’t been busy at all… Wrong. What a journey it has been! If you have followed me for a while you should know how into food I am. So this was bound to be on the cards at some point. Where, when, how, you ask? Well here is the story.
Skinny Legs was born 3 and a half years ago to twin sisters Jesse and Jamie. They started the business with no previous experience in the food industry and created quite a little establishment with a super loyal following. I was one of those followers. The restaurant is 2 blocks from where I live and in the summer I would waft down there to devour a warmed goat’s cheese salad – just like the ones I had had in Paris. On one such occasion in November of last year, after I was seriously considering a move to LA to pursue a possible acting career, Jesse delivered my salad with a, ‘We’re selling, don’t you want to buy?!’ And yes, after some some quick but serious thought, I did in fact want to buy! LA went flying out the window and admin me went into overdrive. And there you have it. I bought and now run Skinny Legs Luxury Cafe with my mom. Check us out at 70 Loop Street, Cape Town.
For now here’s some tasty looking goods that we offer up – and you can stalk us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook: @skinnylegscafe.
