Folk Café is a quaint cute coffee shop located on Bree Street, opposite Cape Town’s biggest building, the Portside. It’s got a real deli-café style to it with warm wooden tables scattered around and plenty natural light pouring in. Old bicycles, radios and books fill the walls, making you feel like a cool kid in the 1970s. There’s outside seating if it’s a warm day or plenty room inside if you’re looking to hibernate and work. I’d definitely recommend Folk Cafe as a work spot, especially if you’re waiting for a meeting in town. Otherwise, Folk Cafe is a great trendy spot to have a meeting and impress a client with your style.
Coffee & Food:
The coffee is good, darkly roasted leaving you with a smooth mouthful full of flavour. Just be careful when ordering a flat white though because I was presented a mammoth-sized cuppa with too much milk. The food isn’t bad either with a variety of healthy but wholesome meals. A range of eggs on toast, croissants and breakfast salads fill the menu. A few standouts on the lunch menu include the Confit Duck, Steak Tagliata and the Cauliflowers Steaks. They’ve also got salads, sarmies, burgers, wraps and tacos if you’re looking for something a bit more standard.
