Welcome to Makers Landing
A V&A food community
MAKING CHANGE – ONE PLATE AT A TIME
Welcome to Makers Landing, the future of South African foodpreneurship. Food is an integral part of our waterfront neighbourhood. Not only does it bring people together through memory-making, but it nourishes livelihoods too. That’s why we’ve created a space to champion the next generation of South African small businesses and a thriving food scene with our Food Incubator, Demo Kitchen and Makers Space. Food doesn’t only tantalise our tastebuds – it is a catalyst for change, one plate at a time.
The Makers Landing Incubation Programme is an immersive accelerator course, empowering food entrepreneurs to grow their businesses. While the Demo Kitchen is the perfect canvas for food thought leadership events, interactive classes and experiences.
Meet our makers, showing food production processes and providing mentorship within our food community whilst serving up SA flavours.
Explore the rich taste of dishes rooted in our multi-cultural SA heritage and learn to make them your own.
Savour Sweet Treats
Satisfy your sweet tooth at one of these delicious spots. Enjoy bean-to-bonbon chocolate at Afrikoa, various tantalizing cakes at Sweet Lionheart or the ultimate koesister from Fuzzy’s. You’ll also find yummy baked goods at Bread Bar Bakery or fudgy creations at Ooh Fudge.
Discover delicous drinks
Start at Ukhamba Beerworx, SA’s most beautiful brewery, before heading on over to B2 for refreshing iced antioxidants, Pienaar & Son for small-batch modern spirits, Coffee by Moses for beans and hot brews or The Sunshine Food Sprouting Co for healthy and tasty smoothies. Looking for something different? Pop on down to Charms Kitchen for a cane juice.
Planet Earth provides everything we need to live – that’s why it’s so important that we all do our part to protect her.
Explore innovative flavours
With offerings like Indian street food with a difference at Kapoochka, Durban-inspired meals at Charms Kitchen or reimagined Nguni cuisine at Emazulwini Restaurant, your taste buds won’t be disappointed if you’re looking to enjoy the taste of home or try something new for the first time.
Meat your next meal
Are you a meat-lover? Order up some beloved local meat treats (like tripe, trotters of mogudu) at Pitso’s Kitchen or enjoy burgers and biltong from Conscious Meat Merchants. Get your teeth into some delicious wings and chips at Sidewing or braaibroodjies and chops at Mosi Smokehouse.
