We come here every Saturday after Park run. Coffee best in Umhlanga. Really friendly owners and staff. Bread and bacon is best around. Strawberry milkshakes made with real Strawberries. We love chilling at this place. Highly recommend for those who love real food,coffee and service.

Thanks for your very kind words and GREAT news - the crane is going next month and so from September we will no longer be on a building site. Look forward to having you back to see the finished product in September.

I went for three days in a row - not worth having bad coffee just because it comes with the breakfast. I tried Uganda, Zimbabwe and Berundi and my Favourite was Uganda. Wither as a cappuccino or latte.
Friendly service, they recognize you and engage on each visit. Lovely lounge area upstairs to sit and read and enjoy the music.
Must visit for good coffee.

Africa at its best. African coffees. In Africa. All fair trade sourced. These guys know coffee. If you're serious about good coffee this is the place to be. It is tucked away and the first time I visited it took me a while to find. With daily selections of coffees from Africa I have sampled single origin coffee from Zimbabwe, Rwanda, Burundi, Ethiopia, Zambia, Kenya and Tanzania over the course of 4 visits. I love sitting upstairs on the mezzanine. Cozy. Good coffee well presented and knowledgeable staff make this my favorite spot of the moment.

Great sidewalk vibe and the best single origin coffees from Africa. I also love the lounge upstairs for a quiet meeting.
