We all know that there can’t really be a “Best” Gatsby around because we all have different tastes and it comes in so many different kinds and shapes. One thing we do know is that you have NOT experienced Cape Town if you haven’t had a Gatsby yet!
Some would even go so far as to say you haven’t lived if you haven’t had a Gatsby yet. So to make sure nobody misses out on a Gatsby we asked our followers where the best Places in Cape Town are to get a Gatsby from and they have spoken. We have broken the results down into groups based on mentions rather than in any specific order.
Check out the video at the end of this article where a Coloured Oke takes some Whiteys to try out a Gatsby!

Three Most Popular places to grab a Gatsby in no specific order:
Cosy Corner take Aways
Cosy Corner is known as much for its homeliness and welcoming spirit as it is for its food. Ingredients and products are sourced from carefully selected suppliers. With a vast menu, and especially famous for their Grills, Curries, Salomies and of course Gatsbys, Cosy Corner draws regulars from around the Peninsula.
Cosy Corner is open all day and until 2 am at night. A trip to Cape Town isn’t complete without a visit.

When in Athlone, it would be a sacrilege not to pay a visit to Super Fisheries, which is owned by the originator of the Gatsby, Rashaad Pandy. Here you can expect to find authentic halaal Gatsby’s ranging from the popular and pocket-friendly polony Gatsby with atchar to, well, fish and calamari Gatsby’s at a couple rands extra.
