I’m not familiar with the coffee scene in Pretoria. In fact, I’ve only been to one spot. But going on what I found, there doesn’t seem to be much need to travel elsewhere.
TriBeCa in Design Square is celebrating its 13th birthday this year. While that’s only a teenager to us, in the industry it’s a lifetime. And there is no secret to the recipe of their success. The coffee is top-notch, the staff are friendly and attentive and the atmosphere is relaxed. There is ample parking and almost all the items on the menu, particularly the chicken and mushroom pizza, warrant a mention in your next letter to Gran.
Despite being blown away by my lunch and cup of ‘Kilimanjaro Organic’, which is a full-bodied, sweet coffee with berry and chocolaty notes, what I loved most about this place was the décor. The interior is divided into three sections, each with its own character and brightly coloured flare but keeping within a common theme that runs throughout. Most intriguing is the section on the left, which is clad in old-school photographs of a random couple’s traveling adventures back in the 70’s.
