I am a lover of coffee; perhaps a coffee-junkie is the better term – you could say that coffee is my Happy Place! I guess you can also call me a “coffee snob”. Only ‘proper coffee’ for me, no instant and the stronger the espresso, the better. I even went as far as buying a Lavazza coffee machine, to satisfy my need! So in the interests of purveying fine coffee, I thought I would do a bit of research to establish the Top Coffee Shops in Cape Town – with the help of my readers.
Top Coffee Shops

So whether it is for a quick cuppa on the run (“with wings”) or a morning out with friends, enjoying a cappuccino and a delicious pastry, there is a place for everyone! Some I have had the pleasure of visiting, some I have not, but I am sure I will work my way there.

For the Love of Coffee
My favourites for various reasons are Knead Bakery; mostly because their almond croissants are amazing, The Food Barn Deli because they make great coffee and it is in walking distance from my house! I know that Vida e is extremely popular, not my favourite but they do have stores countrywide.
Both Deluxe Coffee Works and Origin Coffee Roasting Cafe, are said to make the best coffee – well I am going to have to pay them a visit and find out for myself! For something more than just a good coffee you have to try Tasha’s, even their website puts me in a good mood! To quote their website “Tasha’s is a dynamic, sensual journey of flavour set in lush interiors.” – Need I say more! You will have to experience it for yourself. So if you are looking for something to do this weekend pop out and sample some of the finest coffee Cape Town has to offer.
