That Cape Town's Bree
Street has been thriving of late is hardly a secret—we covered the area's
revival last year. But with buzzy openings seemingly every week, it's always
worth checking in to see what's new. Here are some of the most exciting
eateries to set up shop on Bree Street in recent months. Bacon on
Bree  April was a busy month for Bree: next door to Culture Club (see
below), this temple to bacon opened its door around the same time behind a
considerably more somber exterior to its neighbor. Bacon lovers rejoiced at
Richard Bosman's pork-heavy menu: The Yank (croissant, bacon, macadamia nut
honey butter), The Rooster (Kaiser roll, bacon, fried egg, chili garlic
sauce), and Le Coq Sportif (confit crispy chicken wings with umami bacon wing
sauce), to name a few. Culture Club Cheese  You can't miss this
pint-size cheese emporium (pictured), thanks to its cheerful (though some
might say garish) yellow façade. Since April, husband-and-wife team Luke
Williams and Jessica Merton have been selling top South African cheeses, along
with a menu that showcases them to the fullest: toasties with unpasteurized
Myst Hill cheddar, a cheese-and-ham sandwich with De Pekelaar cumin gouda, and
a toasted bagel with De Pekelaar Boerenkaas, Ganzvlei Blue Moon, and chorizo.
  Door 221  Having just opened a few weeks ago, Door 221 is
the newest kid on the block—for now, anyway (we wouldn't be surprised if
something else set up shop as we typed this). The intimate, industrial-chic
spot offers a select list of cocktails creative bar food, and it's already a
hot favorite for its Taco Tuesdays. Inside and You're Out Burger 
While there are no points for originality here—the name is clearly a riff on
the popular West Coast burger chain In-N-Out, while the logo seems lightly
inspired by the East Coast's Shake Shack—this mobile burger bar popular at
city markets opened its first brick-and-mortar outpost behind a bright orange
door on Bree this past spring, making their famous Whiskey Braai-BQ, Pickle
Pulled Piggy, and Brie Street burgers accessible all week long.
