This place was close to our Airbnb and it is a nice place. It didn’t stand out to me as much as truth or the art caffe around the corner but still nice for a quick coffee.

Kale avo smash with poached eggs, Shakshuma w/ Hallumi, 2 coffees, R251 without tip. The range of coffees they have is quite vast - we tend to just go with their coffee of the day!

We stumbled across this local Cafe - we had amazing breakfast - Avo Smash, Salmon Benedict’s, flat white and an espresso tasting. Absolutely fantastic!! We’re walking out with 3 bags of espresso to take home.

We loved the great coffee and food here, and the historical building it is in is super cute. The interiour is just lovely and service friendly. Great sourdough bread.
