You need good coffee & a WiFi connection & something to eat in the Capetown City Bowl? The Red Sofa in Derry Street will provide. A cafe for online knowledge workers.

I come here often as I like be to do my emails and have a good breakfast, however, the breakfast portions are getting very small and the food is definitely not up to standard for the price. I don’t want to pay R70 for something...More

When majority of nice cafes are very centralised in the centre of the city it's very nice to have a local cafe which is vibey, serves delicious food, has a friendly and relaxed staff and gives more character to the area. Veggie wrap is amazing!...More
