Many eateries have pivoted to survive in these trying times, with one innovative tactic being to sell their own merchandise. And we do all love a good printed tee and cute tote bag! Here’s a list of Jozi eateries that are bumping up their e-commerce and brand extensions as part of their new game plan.
Besides chef Marthinus Ferreira’s six-course brunch collection menu (as well as lunch and dinner collection menus!), you can also order take-home items such as flavoured butters, biscuits, assorted bonbons, ice cream and biscuits. You’ll need to order 24 hours in advance.
While you can eat in via Uber Eats or eat out on the Il Contadino terrace, James Diack has also opened a deli where you can shop high-quality produce such as the charcuterie and cheeses his mom, Janet, makes at their farm called Brightside.
The owners of this popular roastery and coffee shop recently had to close their store in Braamfontein, but their Rosebank branch is still alive and kicking. Apart from your daily caffeine boost, you can pop in for t-shirts and totes to show support for the small business. They also ship locally and internationally – plus they stock home-brew gear so you can make their coffee at your convenience.

Just like birthdays a treat like this only comes around once a year. Unlike birthdays, you get two of them!! Jasper 075 & Amber 076 are the delicious product of the collaboration between @projectorigincoffee and the Thageini Washing Station in Nyeri, Kenya. Intentionally processed, these natural and washed siblings have both undergone a unique carbonic maceration fermentation that brings out some of the most explosive sweetness and clarity we've ever found in coffee 💥 Each offers a distinct taste experience and 100g boxes are available to purchase in store for R325. Brews of both available on request.
Sifiso Ntuli has started their merchandise range with a home-made ginger beer that is the perfect way to wash down takeaways and deliveries ordered from their menu.
