Coffee hotspots in Cape Town
September 16, 2014

On 29 September, it’s International Coffee Day! Coffee is without a doubt the world’s favourite hot beverage; and Cape Town’s thriving artisan coffee scene offers unique rotisserie culture.

There are many places to go; to not only enjoy a well-made cup of coffee, but to also experience the vivid art, design and creative community of the Mother City.

Here are some of our favourite places to get a cuppa in Cape Town.

The Haas Collective
Part advertising agency, part art gallery, and all great coffee. This inspiring little café is situated in the heart of Cape Town’s colourful Bo-Kaap.

Truth Coffee Roasting
One travel writer famously named Truth as: “the best coffee shop in the world”. The eclectic, unusual décor combined with the ‘art of coffee making’ makes this a must-visit on your list. We serve Truth Coffee at all of our destinations.

Yours Truly
This café specialises in keeping things simple; from really good coffee to homemade pizzas and sandwiches. They often have live music events too.

Deluxe Coffee Works
“Good music, interesting people and great coffee.” There are a number of Deluxe Coffee Works across the Western Cape, with the flagship in Cape Town.

Bean There
Offering a relaxing, convivial space on Wale Street, Bean There is South Africa’s first roaster of Certified Fairtrade coffee.

Where’s your favourite coffee spot? Let us know in the comments.
