SOPHEA Gallery and Tibetan Teahouse is set in a beautiful old house overlooking the magnificent False Bay of the Western Cape, South Africa. Situated in Seaforth, a suburb of picturesque Simon's Town on the Main road to Cape Point, the Gallery and Teahouse is only 2 blocks from Boulders National Park with its penguins and beautiful beaches.


There are lots to see and do...

There are 4 distinct sections, each unique and interesting

We also have the  Spiritual Art Gallery It is spread throughout the house where you will find various forms of fine art on display. It ranges from paintings, drawings, sculptures, and ceramics to textiles, photography, glasswork, even digital art. The core essence of these works, including some works by local South African artists - some of whom are  award-winning artists - is that they exude a special kind of spiritual energy over and above the aesthetic appeal of the individual piece.

Another component of SOPHEA Gallery is a Shop or artefact and craft section. Sourced from all over the world, from as far afield as the Himalayan regions of Tibet, Nepal, Kashmir and Bhutan with their rich and ancient handicraft traditions, to our own local South African arts and crafts. Items include singing bowls, prayer flags, silver jewellery, ceramics and rich textiles.

Tibetan Teahouse As you enter from the garden you step into a deep-set and sheltered verandah with fabulous views overlooking False Bay that are ideal for whale watching. Leading on from there is the Tibetan Teahouse. The menu offers imaginative and tasty vegetarian and vegan food, styled on original Tibetan recipes, and is praised by vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. In winter a cosy fireplace and hearty plates of Sherpa Stew or Sweet Potato Curry take care of the cold. All meals and cakes are baked on the premises from the finest ingredients.
