Spotted on Elle Decoration SA: the recently opened Kitchen at Weylandts. Located on the top floor of the Durbanville branch of Weylandts, a well-known furniture and housewares emporium with several locations in South Africa, the Kitchen takes a seasonal, locavore approach to in-store dining (owner Chris Weylandt even supplies the restaurant with olive oil, lemons, and wine from Maison, his Franschhoek vineyard).
