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.
The Village Place Café at West Coast Village offers some delicious light meals and cakes 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!
Tucked away in Janssens Avenue in Table View is Black Forest Café. Here you will find friendly and efficient staff that serve the most delectable cakes, light meals and some of the best coffee in town. Plus there is free WiFi. Definately a hidden gem in the area.
Morgans Coffee and Deli is situated on the beachfront with awesome views of Table Mountain. This is a mellow venue that offers great coffee as well as great service. Morgans also serve breakfasts, sandwiches, croissants, toasties or you can make your own ciabatta or baguette. Perfect venue for a business meeting.
