Great coffee, breakfasts & art collide at Ground Art Caffe

The De Waterkant area is of course well-known for its awesome coffee spots, galleries and eateries… But Ground Art Caffe has somehow managed to blend all of those things into one fantastic little space that’s definitely a must see.

Located at 16o Strand St, this cool corner spot serves up a mean cuppa made from […]

A quick peek inside the new Haas in Buitenkant Street

The new Haas in Buitenkant Street (19 Buitenkant St to be exact) has been open for a while now, and even though I literally live around the corner from it, it kept eluding me for some reason…

When I finally popped my head in recently I was happy to see that it had the same […]

There’s a new Tribe in town

If you’ve been lucky enough to visit Tribe Coffee over in Woodstock, you’ll know that these guys are all about great coffee, great food & great spaces.  I was therefore very excited to hear about their new store over in Buitengracht St…

Tribe 112 is a new concept store which brings two great loves together:  […]

Vinyl and coffee meet at Hard Pressed Cafe

I do love a good multi-purpose space and the new Hard Pressed Cafe at the bottom of Bree St certainly hits the mark in that category.

Part coffee shop, part vinyl store, this is a spot you just have to check out, especially if you’re a music lover…

I popped in recently to meet with owner Yaron Wiesenbacher for a […]

A new coffee kid on the block: Shift Espresso Bar

Mmmmm… the smell of fresh coffee… can you smell it?  Can you?  If not, maybe you should pop into the new Shift Espresso Bar in Main Rd, Green Point…. (see what I did there? 😉 )

As a new kid on the block as far as coffee spots in Cape Town go, Shift has already become […]

Do pop in at Bootlegger Coffee Company

Bootlegger Coffee Company over in Sea Point oozes cool with its prohibition bar look & feel.

It’s certainly brought a strong hipster element to the hood, but I don’t say that as a negative, I think it’s definitely the reason why it’s become so popular so quickly.

They roast and brew their own coffee and I can […]

General prettiness at Haas

I’ve been to Haas in Rose St, Bo Kaap a few times to grab a good cuppa…

But usually I just do a quick coffee order and then hang around out front.

Never before did I take the opportunity to really have a good look inside or sit down to eat something.  Don’t know exactly why, cause when […]

The new YOURSTRULY Cafe in Kloof St

The YOURSTRULY Cafe over in Long St has long been a very popular spot with coffee lovers here in the Mother City.

Existing fans and also new should therefore be very excited about their 2nd cafe which opened in Kloof St at the beginning of November last year.

It’s a really great open plan space with a little […]

Southern Suburbs coffee culture part 2: Starlings Cafe

So after Twigs and Beans, Darryn mentioned that we were close to this place called Starlings Cafe which people without fail raved about on Twitter every single Saturday, a place that CBD folk actually specially drove out to for their weekly fix.

This I couldn’t believe…  No offence to the Southern Suburbs, but there’s some really […]

Southern Suburbs coffee culture – part 1: Twigs with Beans

I don’t get out to the Southern Suburbs a lot, so when I had to head through there last Saturday for something, I figured I might as well do some exploring at the same time.  I took my friend Darryn with me as backup though, cause my sense of direction is pretty poor and […]
