It’s going to be intriguing.” — Kamal Hamzaoui.

Had a great eggs bennedict - eggs cooked perfectly. Decor is funky and fun. As a non coffee drinker was surprised I couldn't get a normal cup of tea - no English breakfast, Five Roses, Joko - I did find this odd. So my expectations were not met. My friends both had coffees which I thought was very expensive. With all they hype I expected more!

Great coffee and food! Cakes are divine! Coffee is amazing and the whole process of choosing beans and coffee type is grey for coffee lovers.

The setting is the best bit. An industrial feel with coffee paraphernalia everywhere! The way the staff are dressed is awesome!

It’s super popular though! So very busy but they seem to be able to seat and cope with large numbers !

We went here for coffee and breakfast a few times during our stay in Cape Town. Coffee, food and service are great. Would definitely recommend.

Quirky quaint and very cool restaurant / cafe. Their coffee is seriously amazing if you are a coffee connoisseur / snob. I had the Chia Seed Pud which was divine.

Huge disservice if you visit Cape Town without stopping here during your visit! The staff are some of the most friendly I’ve met in all of my travels! They have coffee down to a science and it shows with every sip! My favorites were the sunrise espresso and albumen airship. No worries if youre hungry as the food shines just as bright as the drinks!!
