Our local friends brought us here on our trip to Cape Town as they insisted we should go here to taste the best coffees and breakfast in Cape Town.
Well, they weren't lying. The coffee was AMAZING. Possibly one of the best I've had on all my travels and the breakfast was delicious.
The restaurant is quite small, so you might have to wait for a table but trust me, it is well worth waiting for.
Definitely recommend the vanilla latte!

Visited the place twice, to have something not too much for lunch. Salada and sandwiches are so fresh and tasty. Lattes are very very good. Service is friendly and quitw quick too, even the place is full during the lunch time. Very good value.

This coffee shop has a brilliant atmosphere, friendly staff, not to mention the burgers they are delicious. Don't forget to takeaway a brownie for later
