#HighburyHearsYou – we at Cape Town Etc are passionate about getting local restaurants back and booming in business. As part of our #HighburyHearsYou initiative, we’re dishing out the deets on some incredible restaurants in and around town.

Coco Safar offers all sorts of culinary couture at their Sea Point All-day Cafe, Coffee Roastery, Bakery and Pâtisserie Boutique. From a decadent High Tea taste discovery, to delicious breakfast and lunch, to indulging in the “World’s Best Croissants”, incredible Specialty Coffee Capsules (oxygen-tight, compostable & Nespresso-compatible), as well as an array of Couture Easter Gift Ideas – Coco Safar has it all!

Coso Safar is as cosmopolitan is they come. “Conceived in New York, designed in Toronto and made in Cape Town,” they claim.

Join Coco Safar on a journey beyond eggs-traordinary this Easter as they unveil all kinds of decadent Easter treats for your enjoyment. For the first time ever, they are introducing a limited edition duo of Coco Safar Egg Pâtisserie. Because what’s better than having chocolate eggs this time of year… But these are no ordinary Easter eggs… Think artisanal chocolat meets French-style pâtisserie meets culinary art. Using only the finest Valrhona chocolate, they fill their eggs with a decadent French pâtisserie filling, and finish it off by meticulously painting each egg by hand. Available in a white chocolate version with a mango-basil pâtisserie filling, and a dark chocolate version filled with chocolate mousse, chocolate streusel and salted caramel, you can have it either to take away, or as a sit down experience.

Next up is their inimitable HOT CROSS BUN. You may have discovered when they launched this beauty last year, that not all Hot Cross Buns are created equal. Made with an all-natural cinnamon and fennel-spiced milk-infused ciabatta base, it has generous helpings of homemade marzipan chunks and freshly baked apple & cinnamon inside, and is finished with a sweet marzipan glaze and orange zest. The combination is simply irresistible – most definitely not your average Hot Cross Bun!

Expect global classics taken to exciting new levels, such as the decadent Coco Safar French Toast, Croissant Benedict, Truffle-mushroom Risotto, classic Steak Frites, or Poppyseed Tempura Calamari to name a few. Refined, world-class French-style pâtisserie paired with an innovative and a best-in-class custom-designed beverage menu completes the offering and will keep guests coming back for more.

Whether your guest is a flat white fan, a cappuccino connoisseur or a latte lover, Coco Safar has something for every palette, perfectly brewed and pulled every time, from our iconic one-of-a-kind Kees van der Westen espresso machines (which are worth the trip alone – just to see in real life).


For locals or travellers looking for the perfect destination for a memorable celebration, the couture High Tea is an experience like no other. The Coco Safar® Royal Voyage takes the traditional afternoon high tea to a couture level – a multi-sensory culinary journey that will take guests from Cape Town to Istanbul with a stop over in Paris and from there, Shanghai.  Guests can enjoy personalized table side service by the Coco Safar executive chef, reminiscent of the most exquisite  grand hotels of the 1950s, delivered with contemporary flair. It’s a savoury and sweet culinary voyage that is beyond what they have ever experienced before. It’s the perfect food experience to help guests celebrate a special occasion or memorable afternoon alike.


They proudly thrive on pushing the envelope by reinventing and taking the best of classics to new levels of cutting-edge creativity, resulting in mouth-watering visual poetry with contemporary twists and flavours. Every day, their team of artisans rise to the occasion, dedicated to deliver innovative viennoiserie-style confections, remarkable baked goods and bite-size sweets, decadent signature chocolates, heavenly light desserts to share, and epicurean collections of delightful gourmandises for daily indulgence.

You can also pre-order the fabulous BonBon Voyage Couture Chocolate Collection as a beautiful gift this Easter.
