Eat Out

Our editor loves this spot for its drink called The Amy, comprising a double espresso, a spoonful of peanut butter, scoops of ice cream and sprinkling of white chocolate chips. Apart from their coffee (a medium-roast blend with a subtle chocolate aftertaste), they sell vinyl records, have cool staff and their quirky décor attracts both very trendy customers as well some suits from the law firm upstairs.

User reviews

  • I am a bit of a groupie for this place. They serve delicious coffee (a special from the people behind Mischu - which, for my money, is the best coffee in Cape Town), the staff are always friendly and chirpy, and I've yet to go wrong with the food menu. I love the salad with humus and chicken, and the muesli (which is more like pudding, really, than breakfast) even tried a banting cupcake the other day - delicious - much to my surprise as a banting sceptic. My only complaint: it is a little pricey. But you can't have everything, I guess!

  • A really great spot on Cape Town's foreshore. Good quality coffee, and addictively delicious 'Madonna' muesli, with thick yoghurt and what tastes like broken up pieces of crunchie - rather than muesli.

  • Fab, fast, friendly service, coupled with a cool vibe and the best smoked salmon & cream cheese bagel (that's before you've even had a sip of their awesome coffee!), makes for a favourite lunch spot! If you're hungry, go for the Schnitz or Italian sandwich. Try hard to resist one of their cakes or bars afterwards, as you will end up with a daily habit.
