We stopped by First Light before we hit all the factory shops in the area to do our day’s planning. Wow! Amazing little artisan coffee place. A great selection of brews and coffees. Interesting cafe menu for light meals as well. I could have spend...a couple of hours there just watching people or enjoying the vibe. Well worth a visit.More

Oh my, how I adore this sweet little place! Their coffee is simply delicious. Their bakes and snacks are such a treat. I enjoy coming here all by myself, with my husband on a date or with friends. You can also buy coffee from their...roastery, Routed Roasters, in store. I cannot recommend this jewel of a place enough! It is a true treasure in the heart of Jeffrey's bay, walking distance from the Surf Village and Main beach. Their decor inspires. They always have the best music playing that only adds to a creative experience.More

My go-to coffee shop in town. Lovely atmosphere and amazing coffee! Baristas know what they’re doing and more so do it with passion- a legit passion for coffee and people! A great space to connect and just be!

Such a cool, trendy little coffee shop in Jbay. Young owners with a heart to serve. We are very fussy coffee drinkers and their coffee is outstanding.

A small coffee shop that is a strong contender for best takeaway cuppa in Jbay. I loved the spiritual aspect of the coffee shop and the friendly staff. You feel like an old friend there and always leave feeling refreshed after a quick coffee. I...love the positive feel good energy of First Light. Also some yum snacks available + viëtnamese iced coffee = awesomeness in a cup.More
