There’s a host of awesome coffee shops to hit up in and around Cape Town. We’ve already recommended 10 of them over here. But, given the love so many Capetonians have for a good caffeine buzz, we’re sure some of you are still on the hunt for the café that’s, in the words of Goldilocks, ‘just right’. So, here are four more spots to visit whenever you’re in the mood for a good cup of Joe.
1 Dapper Coffee Co.
Cars and coffee can easily make for a classy pairing, as proven by Dapper Coffee Co. Based within Club 9, a car dealership that specialises in vintage and luxury cars, it has the ambience of a ’60s flick. Sip on some amazing coffee while casting your gaze on the vehicles from a bygone era that are on display.
2 Deluxe Coffeeworks
With its main outlet based in the central suburb of Gardens and four more coffee shops dotted around the Cape, Deluxe Coffeeworks is a reliable go-to for your daily fix. But it’s unconventional take on the modern-day coffee experience is perhaps its main selling point. You’ll find no WiFi when you’re at one of its stores; just great coffee, awesome music and a chance to socialise.
3 Espresso Lab Microroasters
Tucked into the buzzing social hub that is The Old Biscuit Mill, Espresso Lab Microroasters is the coffee connoisseur’s dream. Mainly showcasing coffees from Africa and South America, it’s your go-to place to have a treat and hopefully learn about the nuances of each type of coffee on offer.
Where The Old Biscuit Mill, 373–375 Albert Road, Woodstock
Contact +27 21 447 0845, [email protected], espressolabmicroroasters.com
4 Origin Coffee Roasting
You could go into Origin feeling like a newbie when it comes to coffee, but we’d be surprised if you left without some knowledge of, and appreciation for, the drink. With a passionate team of baristas, a selection of several international coffees and barista courses for those interested in taking up the trade or honing their own skills, Origin assures an expert coffee experience.
