It’s no secret that Cape Town’s CBD has been congested, and the need for another business district is the City of Cape Town’s top priority. Recent developments within the Southern Suburbs has seen the rise of Claremont as the solution for the overspill of businesses – which in the long haul, should ease congestion.
In the midst of the pandemic, some businesses are still working from home and many workers have been indulging in ‘away from home’ work spots, with not only access to Wi-Fi, but enjoying scrumptious meals, beverages or confectionary to fuel up.
Here’s a round-up of the top socially conscious and inclusive spots in Claremont and Newlands, just for you, that makes work feel like play:
Live Inn at Park Inn by Radisson Newlands
In the heart of Newlands, this gem boasts a beautiful work-away-from-home setting and an acclaimed sweet and savoury menu by Chef Chevonne Morris. Catch up on e-mails and indulge in breakfast or lunch. This is the perfect opportunity to turn work into play and meet up with a few friends once you put down the tools. A third of the staff who runs the hotel’s operations are deaf, which makes the visit the perfect feel-good spot! To sweeten the deal, you can also enjoy free Wi-Fi and complimentary parking.
Location: 10 Hemlock Street, Newlands
Twenty on Vineyard
A mixed retail offering delicious treats from salad bowls and sarmies, to coffee and ice-cream. This space is home to a few local brands, which are great to support following the knock the industry had taken during the pandemic. Arrive early and enjoy a treat or two while you chip away at those deadlines.
Location: 20 Vineyard Road, Claremont
I Love Coffee
A proudly South African social enterprise that educates and employs deaf youth to become baristas, chefs and all things hospitality. Laptop and notebook in one hand and their almond apple tart in the other, certainly a recipe for success!

Each of these picks play a significant role in growing the local economy and being socially conscious and inclusive gems within the Southern Suburbs community. Work, play and social responsibility can be ticked off your list by paying these spots a special visit.
