Among the many dining options check out the always popular Tashas, the fun and friendly, Wok n Roll, Ribs & Burgers for a casual lunch, or for something more glamorous book a table at David Higg's sophisticated Saint which attracts a fashionable crowd and serves fantastic Italian food in glitzy surroundings. Another favourite is Jasmine Fusion, an upmarket halal restaurant serving elegant cuisine inspired by flavours from Asia and the Middle East. Also look out for the addictive local ice-cream parlous chain Paul's Homemade Ice Cream, Bootlegger for some of the best coffee in Sandton and Kauai for healthy smoothies and salads to go.
For a spot of retail therapy check out Willberrys for luxury accessories, Cape Union Mart for essential camping and hiking gear or Frond and Filigree for the most beautiful gifts and bespoke flower bouquets. If you have an interest in art it's also well worth checking out the ThomArts gallery space (entrance on Maude Street) which showcases interesting young local upcoming contemporary artists.
