A beautiful hidden gem that serves lovely food by great staff. A coffee shop that you will want to sit down for a quick bite to eat but you have to extend your stay because its so good just to sit and chill.

This coffee shop was right by our hotel. It's a great, intimate space, without some of the pretentious gimmick of some of the other Cape Town coffee shops. Had a nice small breakfast and coffee.

Had a quick lunch, flatbread with vegetable and mushrooms and a coffee. Everything was really good, not too expensive and the people were nice. The coffee shop was also quite pretty, which is a plus.
