Cape Town's Best Coffee Areas:
Originally a teapot city in the 1960’s, Cape Town has adapted and changed, becoming a hub of coffee excellence and taste. Coffee culture in Cape Town has been on an exponential rise since 2005 when numerous roasteries and coffee shops began to surface, most notably Origin was founded. Cape Town has the most independent coffee roasters in South Africa and is widely regarded as being the African capital of coffee culture.
Observatory, otherwise known is Obs, has the most densely populated Coffee Shops and the quality of coffee standards is exceptional. Observatory is also incredibly multicultural, probably the most integrated space in Cape Town. Observatory is one cool place with more than 10 coffee shops in the area. Obs also has fantastic book stores, thrift shops and bars.
Kalk Bay is a little fishing town just outside Cape Town and is transcending into a big coffee destination. Kalk Bay has lots of coffee shops along Kalk Bay main road but also has coffee shops in the nooks and crannies behind Kalk Bay Main Road. Kalk Bay coffee shops are some of the best in Cape Town.
Woodstock has always been the up and coming area of Cape Town with trendy clubs, pubs and bars popping up all around. Coffee Shops in Woodstock have been no exception to this. Coffee Shops in Woodstock are fitting in with the trends, serving damn fine coffee in Woodstock and often at a more reasonable price. Unfortunately, the coffeeshops are not as densely populated as Observatory but that gives them their own Woodstock magic.
