Ah coffee! That opiate of the early riser, the sweet perfume of the overworked office block, the first muse of every writer and perhaps the only reason most of us can function on a sub-par normal level.
Apparently 2,250 000 000 cups of coffee are drunk every day around so Table View Info has rounded up some great places in the area where you can grab your cuppa.
Cup & Cake is a quirky little place in Eden on the Bay where you can grab a cup of coffee and yes, some cake – great cakes of various flavours for every palette and even for those giving a go with the Banting diet. If you want to book for a hen party or children’s bash, bring them over to Cup & Cake.
Love goes well with coffee…and cake and LOVE CAKE CAFÉ brings it all together. You’ll find them in Burgundy Estate, Plattekloof and they’re totally head over heels for cake. Every cake passes a scrupulous taste test and so, the Carrot Cake has is officially dubbed “out of this world” by regulars. There’s a play area for the kids while you sit and relax in a beautifully decorated café.
Well-trained baristas know how to serve a spectacular cup of coffee at Reload Espresso Bars. Their motto? Keep it natural, keep it simple, do it well. And they really do it well with freshly prepared, tasty wraps and their German style hot dog will not disappoint. Check out any one of their three spots: Leadville Dog Park, Flamingo Square and the Piazza Shopping Centre.
The Village Place Café at West Coast Shopping Centre offers some delicious toasted sandwiches packed with a variety of mouth-watering ingredients. If you’re a pensioner, Wednesdays get you 10% off and on Best Friend Fridays, your friend’s cake is half price!
