If I lived in Joburg, Wolves would be my coffice. It is an awesome little spot in Illovo, with an all day breakfast, free wifi and killer coffee. Edwin, the manager, is an absolute legend and the walls are clad in small pieces of art. The couches are comfy, the cakes are to die for and the hot chocolate comes with a moustache – a chocolate one. They have been around for nine months or so and are unlike most coffee spots you’ll find in the big city. You can also pick up a Frankie mag or a beautiful piece of jewelry from Skermunkil.
Wolves are serving an Ethiopian Sidamo from Bean There and its nom, nom, nom. Floral aromas, a gentle acidity and citrus overtones – its oh, so smooth!
Other than getting the thumbs up as a coffice, the chances are great that Wolves will also become one of your local watering holes. On Thursday nights they hold Howl – an evening of live music performed by incredible, local musicians and Fridays at 16h30 is Beer O’clock. But not just any beer, they’ve got the fridges stocked with the beauties from &Union. Need I say more?
