Critic's review

Lindsay September

Food
The selection is small, especially for an all-day eatery, with just sandwiches and a breakfast selection from which to choose. The sandwiches are impressive, each made with toasted sourdough and a homemade mustard. They come elegantly stacked and perfectly crisp, with fillings options ranging from chicken and mayo to mince, feta and garlic. The most expensive is priced at R60 and the same goes for the breakfasts. Each of the four breakfasts comes with toasted sourdough lovingly spread corner-to-corner with butter. For the ‘Sourdough Scramble’, that means your toast is topped with bacon, perfectly scrambled eggs and a smattering of feta cheese and baby tomatoes. The ‘Boston Breakfast’ is as simple yet delicious: two rashers of bacon with two scrambled eggs, sourdough and a bean smoor. Each element is served in its barest simplicity yet is undeniably enjoyable.

There’s a small selection of pastries available, with pleasant options like chocolate croissants, danishes and mini brownies. If available, grab a slice (or five) of the life-changing chocolate cake.

You might find yourself at a loss if you’re at all picky or have any dietary considerations. Most dishes have cheese, bacon or bread, disqualifying quite a few groups of eaters – but if you don’t fall into one of those then you’re in luck, because there’s truly no other reason to skip breakfast here.

Drinks
It’s not called Boston Coffee for nothing. All your caffeine favourites are available, as well as some more exotic options like Aeropress coffee, vacuum pot coffee, pour-over coffee, cold-drip and Turkish coffee. They’re well priced and more than their money’s worth. If you’re not a coffee-drinker, you could opt for a rooibos latte, hot chocolate or one of the many milkshakes. (There’s even a flat-white flavoured milkshake.)

Service
You’ll be greeted at the counter with a high five and constantly tended to with a smile and ridiculous amounts of enthusiasm. Each member of staff seems to be having a jolly good time and it’s near impossible not to let it rub off on you.

Ambience
This is a local gem through and through. Boston’s residents flock to this spot that accommodates far more than it seems it should. There’s more than enough outside seating for pleasant days and smaller inside space is great for any seeking respite from the sun. The chalkboard wall behind the counter is covered in everything you need to know about coffee.

  • Absolutely amazing. You can taste the love, care and passion in everything you order. This is not just another coffee place, where the barista just make another coffee. Nope this is a special coffee made just for you. Thr staff is so kind and loving, you just want to go back everyday. Best is, you can, because they are not even expensive. Defs my favourite hang out spot.

  • They clearly take pride in what they do...be it roasting their beans, or steaming milk...or that homemade sweet mustard on one of their sourdough sarmies. A regular stop for me. To add to their repertoire, Boston Slice is now open in Welgemoed Centre - truly authentic pizzas. Do yourself a favour and give these guys a try. I have never been disappointed.
