Bootlegger expands further into Cape Town’s southern suburbs by opening Kalk Bay branch

Coffee addicts in Cape Town’s southern suburbs, take note: Bootlegger Coffee Company (BCC) has expanded into the ever-growing restaurant strip of Kalk Bay.

After a swift road to success in the city after opening branches in Sea Point, Point Mall and Bantry Bay, the owners of the artisanal coffee franchise launched a store in Kenilworth, and have now entered the deep south in Kalk Bay. Owner Ricky Ruthenberg had been searching for the perfect spot in the area, one of his favourite restaurant destinations, for two years before finally finding the location opposite Cape to Cuba, which was previously owned by artist Donna McKellar as an art studio and gallery. “Kalk Bay has a similar village style or feeling that we choose for all our locations,” says Ricky.

Guests can look forward to daily specials on items like fishcakes, line fish, mussels and – a first for the Bootlegger group – pizza. Like its siblings, the new edition to the BCC family will have a look inspired by 1920s New York, with touches of brass. Banquette seating overlooking Kalk Bay’s main road invites customers to sit back and enjoy the cool ocean breeze while sipping their cuppa joe, glass of beer or wine, or colorful cocktails.

The owners might also be looking into potential additions to the stable in Rondebosch, Constantia, Kloof Street or Stellenbosch. Keep your eyes peeled to Eat Out for updates.
