Dapper Coffee Co. is an eatery and coffee shop on trendy Bree Street in the CBD, which opened last month adjacent the new sports car showroom, Club9.


Dirk, Lauren and Alex Molsen conceptualised Dapper and Club9 as a place to enjoy a meal and check out some lust-worthy wheels. Dirk drives the Club9 aspect, and Alex is the guru behind the café. Toni Unterberger from Rivets and Rockets designed the chic interior, which makes for a comfortable spot to enjoy an early morning coffee or a business breakfast. The Café and showroom stay open late on the first Thursday of every month, so swing by for some First Thursdays trend spotting.


The menu is designed by Chef Luke Wonnacott who draws on experience at Gordon Ramsay at the One&Only Cape Town. It features delectable dishes like banana toast with bacon, fried bananas, mascarpone and maple syrup. Dapper Coffee Co. uses a unique blend from Tribe Coffee and their barristers make the smoothest flat white in town. The drinks offering includes an impressive range of wines by the glass, as well as a craft beer selection.


If you’re considering a shiny new set of wheels, the showroom features classic models by Porsche, MG, Alpha, Lamborghini and more. Dirk Molsen owns Club9 and as a seasoned car collector and specialist can offer a wealth of information and advice.


When  Monday–Friday 7 am – 5 pm; Saturdays 8 am – 3 pm. The café and showroom stay open until late on First Thursdays.
