Our Best Coffee Shops in Cape Town

Cape Town’s coffee culture has been on the rise over the last 10 years. It’s become cool to know the grooviest coffee shops in town and it’s allowed many entrepreneurs to have an office on the go. We’ve been to about 30 Coffee Shops in and around Cape Town so we thought it was about time to let you know our favourites. Here are our best coffee shops in Cape Town.

  • Saint James Observatory is the trendiest coffeeshop in the Observatory Coffeeshop area.
    Saint James is the trendiest spot in Obs for sure.

1. Hout Bay Coffee

We’re all about keeping things authentic and that’s why we have to put Hout Bay Coffee at the top of our list. They’re all about keeping coffee culture authentic and ensuring they deliver the best cuppa coffee in town. The thing we like most about Hout Bay Coffee is that they care about community, treating every patron that walks through the door like a long-lost friend. If you’re looking to escape the Cape Town madness and get in touch with your inner conscious, head to Hout Bay Coffee Roastery in the Mainstream Centre on Princess Street in Hout Bay.

2. Sikis Koffee Kafe

Sikis has got to be the culturally coolest coffee shop in Cape Town. Located in the heart of Khayelitsha, it’s all about having conversations of integration and seeing where the real future of South Africa lies. Not only is the atmosphere electric and inspiring, the coffee is pretty damn fine too. Sikelela Dibela, owner and barista, is a world class barista who has worked in all areas of the world, from London to Cape Town. He’s now bringing Coffee Culture to Khayelitsha so get behind him and support his dream by visiting Sikis Koffee Kafe on 7 Ntaba Street, Village 1 South in Khayelitsha.

3. Rust, Observatory

Rust Café in Observatory is a real special one too. All furniture and aesthetic decorations in Rust have lived a life before, with everything in the café being second hand, besides the bricks of course. Rust is all about being authentic and being the background kind of cool. It’s a great place for a morning meet up with a charismatic coffee or an afternoon break with a coffee and a beer. To get in touch with the rustic rhythm, pop into Rust Café on 1 Herschel Road in Observatory.

4. Saint James, Observatory

Saint James Café is just about the trendiest spot in Obs. Its black and white walls mixed with the dark wooden tables give you the feeling that you could be in a black and white Charlie Chaplin film. Their coffee is one of the best in town and their plug points and quick wifi make it a splendid place to get some work done. They’ve also got a couple tasty treats and great breakfasts that may tickle your tastebuds while you tap your toes to the tunes that run in the background. If this makes you keen as a bean, pop into Saint James on 43 Station Road in Observatory.

5. Roxy All Day, Woodstock

Looking for the best coffee deal in town or just looking for a place to work your weekday woes away? Well Roxy All Day in Woodstock has got your back, offering R10 Coffees from 7 till 11. Their insides look like rock n’ roller trying his luck at Vortex, brightly coloured but smooth and slick throughout. They’ve got some great nibbles if you’re short on cash, otherwise they’ve got a range of delicious dishes on offer to fulfil those midday munchies. If you’re keen to save a buck or get motivated by some murals, pop into Roxy All Day on 216 Albert Road in Woodstock.
