Boston Coffee serves a limited menu of sourdough toasted sandwiches and all-day breakfast to its diverse clientele. You’ll find hipsters comfortably sharing a table with an uncle fresh from the barber shop next door.
Look out for special offers such as Pulled Pork Fridays when you can tuck into a monster toasted sandwich – bursting at the seams with juicy pork, coleslaw and mielie kernels.
The waiters use the hashtags from Boston Coffee’s social media accounts to describe your meal: my bacon, avo, feta and cheddar with a home-made sweet mustard that accompanies all the sandwiches, was placed on the table with a jaunty ‘Here’s your morsige broodjie!’ The Mexican – a toastie jam-packed with mince, feta, tomato, garlic, cheddar, caramelised onions and jalapeños, is the perfect combo of spicy and sweet
From the breakfast menu, try the smoor and scramble (sourdough bread topped with crispy bacon, scrambled eggs, smoor and jalapeños) or the Dagbreeker, a deliciously simple offering of a coffee of your choice, two fried eggs on toast and home-made sweet mustard.
If you enjoy a sweet something, try a chocolate croissant, bite-sized brownie or fresh muffin.
Boston Coffee will ask you your flavour preference before recommending a coffee blend. An order for a pour-over yielded a roast from beans from Mount Elgon, Uganda. A fruity and full-flavoured brew was delivered after being filtered through paper and extracted by hand. You can have Turkish coffee (prepared from a cezve), AeroPress, Chemex or cold drip. Or try one of the best cappuccinos in town.
You order at the counter, but the service is still great. Food and drinks are brought out promptly, with a smile and time for a quick chat. The staff seem to genuinely like working here, so enjoy their uninhibited banter.
So welcoming is this neighbourhood favourite that even a stranger might be greeted with a high five, although the regulars seem like a permanent fixture. It’s also an ideal spot for remote workers who thrive on the bustle.
Return visits for your caffeine fix, whiling away time chatting with friends or playing some of the board games you’ll find on the tables.
