Although I don't often visit Merchants on Long, when I do, I am instantly inspired by what I see. Merchants on Long is like a portal into London, New York and Kenya, all at once.

The goods and service = WORLD CLASS. First for South Africa. The location is a must go destination (Long Street) and the restored building, Merchants, is a historical masterpiece with a touch of modern.

Amazing little treasure chest of thoughtfully curated African wonders. I don't think you'll find a collection like this anywhere else in the world. Great just for a coffee too; very welcoming atmosphere!
