Serves the best coffee by far with good service. Prices are much steeper than most other outlets. Quality cost money.

This a great concept and the company worked the brand very well. But something must be said - better than the design is the taste of real coffee and they know how to do it.

Stopped for a quick coffee, while waiting for the ferry to Robben Island. Cappuccino was just ok. We had intended to get a quick breakfast, but after the coffee and poor service, decided against. There are better places to grab a coffee at the V&A so give it a miss.

Went to Vida e Caffe for breakfast, The coffee was just ok, The muffins were not just cold but almost freezing. the croissant was ok . and that is all the good stuff.....The service was horrible, the place was understaffed and the 3 staff that were there were impolite and rude.

I love their coffee. I enjoy the wifi. Attitude of staff sucks. Sold me a cappuccino and once the deal was done sat on its backside texting... On/off... No interest in the customer. This is the Vida e near the ferry to Robben Island... 😱

Thank Neil V
