The BEST Coffee Shops in Cape Town 21 July 2017

There is nothing quite so satisfying as lingering at a pleasant coffee shop with a freshly-brewed cup at your elbow and your favourite magazine on the table in front of you. I indulge in this pastime as often as I can, and during the course of doing this I have built up a list of my favourite coffee shops in Cape Town. Most of these are in the Southern Peninsula, for the simple reason that that's typically where I am over weekends. Here is my list (my current favourites are flagged with a red asterisk):

Please visit them and tell me if you agree. And if you have suggestions for other places, please let me know as well. That doesn't mean they'll automatically be included on my list, but I will at least try them out.

If you love coffee, check out The Coffee Mag, an online and print magazine dedicated to all things coffee-related in South Africa.

..... and always remember that it is better to have coffee when you don't need it, rather than to need coffee when you don't have it.
