Long Cafe at the Vineyard Hotel, is set to become the quintessential “meeting place” in the Southern Suburbs. Whether it is a coffee date with a friend or quick business meeting, it is the perfect spot.
Situated just off the Hotel’s main foyer, Long Café, offers a truly unique ‘connoisseur’ coffee experience.
Long Cafe at the Vineyard Hotel in Newlands, opened in December 2015. The Cafe in partnership with the specialist Quaffee group, now also operate a roastery on the Vineyard premises.
The stylish Cafe draws decor inspiration from both modern and vintage design styles, to create a warm and inviting space. A particularly eye-catching feature is the stunning, locally-made, blown glass chandelier, which hangs proudly above the barista counter. Other striking design elements include the exposed-brick wall, original artworks by SA artist, JH Pierneef and an impressive mural by international landscape artist, Richard Long.
Coffee lovers can order coffees sourced from individually selected, sustainably-managed estates across the world. Their coffee beans are freshly roasted and blended on site. Aside from top-notch coffee, Long Cafe also serves light meals and a mouthwatering selection of decadent cakes and patisserie. The roastery sells fresh-roasted ‘single origin’ coffee beans, as well as a special Vineyard Blend.
I recently met a friend at the Cafe, for warming cappuccino and a deliciously filled croissant. It was a cold and wet morning, making the cosy Cafe the perfect sanctuary!
I think Long Cafe is a great addition to the Vineyard Hotel! The welcoming aroma of freshly brewed coffee and chic decor, add a contemporary coffee culture element to the hotel. If you are in the area, why not pop in for a coffee or stock up on freshly roasted coffee for home!
