&Union

&Union

A place we love is &Union on Bree Street. Why do we love it? Well, there are a host of reasons. It could be because of the super cool interior and the people that fill it. Perhaps it is the selection of cured meats, grilled sausages and Prego rolls. It could be the array of […]

Anthony’s Golden Cup

If it wasn’t for the aroma of freshly brewed coffee that smacks you as you pass by you could easily mistake Anthony’s Golden Cup for a flag retailer. He tells me that the flags were put up as a part of the World Cup fever and that he hasn’t got round to taking them down. […]

Artisan Café

It’s great when people do things that make your life a little easier, especially when it comes to time. Table 13 has done just that. They have shuffled things around a bit to create a deli space that is geared for those on the go. This little operation goes by the name of Artisan Café […]

Baked Bistro

It’s Bakoven. Most Capetonians may never even have heard of it. It’s a “blink-and-you’ll-miss-it” part of the Camps Bay side of the world, and Baked is just as inconspicuous as the area in which is finds itself. Owner and face of the new found gem, Zahir Mohamed, is incredibly passionate and excited about the prospects […]

Bean Green Coffee Roastery

I’ll admit that I’m envious of the Durbanites. Not because they get to swim in the ocean for hours on end without the affliction of an ice cream headache and frozen extremities. Not because winter never seems to get the memo and as a result they get to sport Havaianas all year round. I envy […]

Beaver Creek

When it comes to coffee producing countries, South Africa is certainly not the first that comes to mind. But in the sleepy, seaside town of Port Edward the Cumming family has been growing, harvesting and roasting the finest speciality coffee for three generations. Beaver Creek Estate was established in 1984 when the first coffee trees […]

Bread Milk & Honey

Bread Milk & Honey

If you find yourself strolling around town, do yourself a favour and pop into Bread Milk & Honey on Spin Street. I say strolling because it is better to stroll here, since it’s unlikely you’ll get parking in close proximity to this spot. This may seem like a bad thing in most circumstances, but it’s […]

Cafe Frank

When a coffee shop or restaurant undergoes a name change it’s only natural to assume that the ownership has changed too.  But when such a space changes its name for other reasons, all of which are positive, it’s good to know what it’s all about. In May, Bree Street’s Rotisserie 360 undertook the new title […]

Cafe Puka

Cafe Puka is the epitome of your neighbourhood corner coffee spot. A well-kept secret with a handful of tables and chairs and a golden retriever named Wags. They have been running for eight years and it’s easy to understand why. The food is delicious, the coffee is great and the atmosphere is friendly and inviting. […]
