I am a lover of coffee, perhaps a coffee-junkie or coffee-snob is the better term. You could say that coffee is my Happy Place! I will only drink ‘proper coffee’, no instant for me and the stronger the espresso, the better. I even went as far as buying my own Lavazza coffee machine, to satisfy this need! In the interests of purveying fine coffee, I thought I would share a few of the popular Cape Town Coffee Shops, according to of some of my readers.

Whether it is for a quick cuppa on the run or a morning out with friends, enjoying a cappuccino and a delicious pastry, there is a spot for everyone! Some I have had the pleasure of visiting, some I have not…

Among my personal favourites are Knead Bakery, their almond croissants are heavenly, and The Food Barn Deli, because they make great coffee and it is in walking distance from my house! I know that vida e caffé is extremely popular and they have stores countrywide. I have heard that both Deluxe Coffee Works and Origin Coffee Roasting Cafe make the best coffee! For something a bit more special than just a coffee tasha’s, is a rather popular choice.
