Tasty Treats That’ll Blow your Socks Off
Lazari is a homely Vredehoek coffee shop, welcoming the community from all around. No matter whether you’ve got kids, dogs or cats, all are welcome to chill. Lazari is effectively a glass box filled with colours and cakes that brighten up with the natural light of the outdoors. The real magic happens when you look out onto the mountains and trees that surround the colourful coffeeshop.
Cute and quaint would be the words to describe this wonderful weekday break. Nestled right in the heart of Vredehoek, Lazari really is a place to escape the city stress. All types of characters roll in mothers, musicians, entrepreneurs and general eaters. While there are people tasting together, it’s not the kind of place where you feel anxious alone because you’ve got people shooting smiles around like they’ve just won the lottery. I reckon they’re all just too keen to dig into a slice of whatever Lazari is serving up.
Coffee & Food:
The coffee is served in seriously stylish cups that make you feel as if you’re drinking in Italy. It’s not perfectly prepared at all but still manages to deliver a succulent sweet taste on the tongue. A lil’ frothy on the top but it does give you that feeling that you’ve been welcomed into somebody’s home.
If you don’t want to miss out on a piece of the pie, then get involved in their tasty treats. On offer they’ve got cheese cake, lemon meringue, all types of brownies and a couple marvellous muffins too. I was in between lunch and dinner, so I got involved in the Veggie Quiche. Jeepers it was good, it made me want to scream to the heavens to tell the angels they’re missing out on Earth. It was just so good, filled with vicious veggies that got on like a real good house party in my mouth.
If you’re keen to escape the city stress or take someone on a date that’s not dinner, then look no further than Lazari Café located on the corner of Upper Maynard Street and Vredehoek Avenue in Vredehoek. I promise you, the tasty treats will blow your socks off.
