About
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.

If the waitress has known a little more about the process of coffee, I would have ordered a more suitable cup of coffee. Only found out when the barista was making my cup of coffee that I had the wrong advise. Too late. Overall an interesting coffee experience. Serve breakfast as well.

Thank you to Hayley from the Barista Academy at Origin and our very charming and attentive waiter Melo for a scrumptious breakfast and the best coffee in Cape Town! Difficult to choose from the extensive list of coffees but there is no wrong choice at this cool coffee spot. If you have a sweet tooth like me try the utterly devine French almond croissants or Italian Panforte with your brew. Will definitely return soon!

Decided to drop in for a coffee and some breakfast. Service was good. Wide variety and choice of coffee - I went for the trio tasting coffee menu. I had Shakshuka with meatballs to eat which was really delicious. Coupled with the 3 coffees I struggled to finish it all. Nice atmosphere too.

Cool aesthetic, busy and kinda vibey. The cafe looked like a great place to do some work while having a coffee etc. The service was quite slow though and some of the staff were somewhat unfriendly. Drinks (chai latte and tea) weren’t memorable.

Our go to whenever we are in CT. As always, delicious coffee and just a wonderful, cosy place to be. Had outstanding prawn and linefish stew alongside an equally tasty fennel, apple and walnut salad with halloumi... both are definitely worth a return visit!

Throughout my life, I have never tried to taste eagerly every kind of coffee. But, this coffee , origin, persuades to me entirely even if I am not crazy too much and keen in this. The taste is attractive enough to be withstand not to try next time and forever. Moreover, the location is very quiet and peaceful as well as the place which i can recommend to take photo.

In a city packed with coffeehouses, Origin stands out. It prides itself on where it sources its beans, how it prepares myriad styles of coffee (including some I'd never heard of) and a training school for its staff on site. The breakfast is great too with a broad range of options. Highly recommend the Eggs Benedict. Service is great too. Oh and they are a very good bakery too: Fresh bread, croissants and bagels every day! What's not to like.

Great place with a very cool vibe. Coffee is excellent and the food is very good as well. Staff is terrific and this is where they train their folks to be coffee experts. Highly recommend as it was one of our favorite spots to visit.

Worse coffee I drank in quite some time. I had coffee from Seattle in Capetown yesterday that is 43rd on the list and I saw that Origin #1 is. I must say that Seattle Coffee is 1000% better. Total disappointment. My wife has the same view.

Opens at 07h00....nice atmosphere, excellent coffee (and tea bye the way) and good variety of breakfast options. Will always visit when in Cape Town. Just a lovely place to pop in and have some great food. Bought bread from the bakery as well...lovely.

Best breakfast/brunch anywhere as I say in the title. One of my highlights for staying at the Capital Mirage Hotel on Chiappini street, Waterkant is this great cafe, with great service.

The menu contains everyone's favorites - samp & beans (veg), pap & chakalaka (veg), pork belly, seared prawns, confit duck leg (vegetarian substitute available), seared beef loin, and pan-fried linefish (vegetarian substitute is available) - cooked to a rare perfection by the young and gifted chef Ayanda Matomela (shortly off to Switzerland to learn more). There is a surprise in everyone of these dishes - like apple chilli coriander salsa, fondant cauliflower, mushroom custard, okra pesto and krispy kale. This food is truly in a league of its own - 'gastro-fab' (if you must). For those who prefer a liquid diet, then proceed straight to the Signature Cocktails - like espresso martini, peach and black tea, plum and cucumber, stone fruit and fennel. Of course, there are the classic cocktails too - but why be same old. The signature is a cut above the rest. Pay attention cocktail connoisseurs! I will most definitely be visiting this restaurant again and again. The proprietor, I gather, wants to create a space that is inclusive of all ideas, all cultures and all people. There are a handful of establishments in Cape Town that have been successful in creating such a space but not with gastro-fab food and signature cocktails. Cafe Noir is an ambitious, bold, and courageous step in this direction. It deserves all our support. Well done!
