Concierge.com's insider take:

Green Point is a trendy neighborhood on the slopes of Signal Hill, overlooking the V&A Waterfront. The locals here like to see and be seen, and you'll find plenty of delis, cafés, bars, and restaurants. An easily walkable area and a good place to explore is De Waterkant, a neighborhood within Green Point made up of narrow, often cobbled streets lined with terraced houses dating back to the 1700s. If you visit only one shop in De Waterkant, it should be Africa Nova, for contemporary arts and crafts. The shop is a riot of patterns and colors, with quirky ceramics, pink chairs made out of recycled plastic, and delicate silverwork by Nic Bladen. Hungry for a snack? La Petite Tarte is a snug French patisserie that serves divine tarts and quiches.
