We stayed in self-catering accommodation nearby so since we didn't have breakfast, took the recommendation of the owner to go to Origin. So good we went back all three mornings we were there, having excellent range of coffees, smoothies and brunches in doing so.

They serve the best banting eggs benedict I ever had and in combination with a superb coffee, this place is a winner. Very fast and friendly service.

Good experience for people who love coffee. We tried the tasting board but I found it too strong for my taste, but I’m not an expert so... the place was super cool though! There is also a vast menu for the tea lovers.

Breakfast was good here. Coffee even better, a large Americano not like the espresso size everyone else offers. Good options for gluten free and the bagels were good too.

Description
Origin was started by Joel Singer in 2006. He wanted to offer South Africans exceptional, quality roasted coffee from around the world. Eleven years later, this pursuit continues. Joel and his team are passionate about coffee. From the sourcing of green beans, to precise roasting, blending, grinding and pouring of coffee. Take the time to visit us at Origin Headquarters in Cape Town where you can meet the artisans, watch the roasting, sit in on a cupping session and get to taste the coffee while it’s still fresh and expressive. Grab a seat at our Brew Bar for some alternative brew methods and new coffee discoveries.
