Thank you for your great review! Our freshly baked pastries and muffins compliment our freshly roasted coffee very nicely!

Coffee is amazing, and you can buy beans to take home as well (nice gift idea for friends who have a bean to cup machine). Vibe is very chill. Super highly recommend. A must visit while in Clarens (especially if you like coffee) and very...conveniently located.More

The smell of coffee as you approach Highland Coffee Roastery lets you know what awaits you! This is one of the few places we've enjoyed coffee that tastes as good as it smells and doesn't leave you feeling edgy. Their coffee of of the highest...quality and very satisfying. Love the outdoor seating with a view of the surrounding mountains. The café is small and cosy inside - no frills, just authentic - the focus is on the coffee. The service is also great - friendly and fast!More

We had coffee on multiple occasions during our stay at Clarens. On every occasion the flat white coffees were excellent and the croissants were as well.

The filter coffee I had at 278 on Main was so lovely and didn't give me palpitations. I enquired and was directed to Highland Coffee. Long queue but worth the wait. I bought a few packages and they grinded my beans at no cost within...minutes. Their coffee is just divine.More

This is the one place to visit when in Clarens. Perfectly brewwed coffee that is roasted on the premises combined with a little snack on a cold morning is the perfect combination.

The service is great as the staff is very pleasant. The owner interacts with customers. The coffee is absolutely amazing and it's difficult e resist a second cup. I can recommend this establishment at any time. The beans are grounded to your perfection and you...can purchase some beans to take home while you at it.More

The coffee is amazing... The house blend used to make the coffee is nice and rounded and strong. You can also buy coffee beans here to enjoy the coffee at home. I had rose syrup in my iced coffee and it was amazing... If you...need your fix in Clarens, go and get it at the Highland Coffee Roastery ;-)More
