So, without further ado, here are the five Capegate coffee shops you need to visit in 2020 and beyond:
Vida E Caffè
Vida E Caffè at Capegate is the epitome of the cool Cape Town coffee shop. Here, you get our expertly brewed americano, latte, cappuccino or macchiato with a side of pure energy and unbeatable swagger from passionate baristas who live to brew the perfect cup. Best of all, when you indulge in a cuppa from Vida E Caffè, you can rest assured that you are supporting their industry-leading, rigorous training programme that consists of theoretical and practical instruction, equipping every single employee with the skills and passion to deliver fantastic service and grow into their potential.
TOP TIP: Ravenous after a late night and in need of something tasty yet nutrient dense to fuel you through the morning? Grab the vegan Banana & Almond Overnight Oats made with almond milk, or the Fresh Green smoothie that combines thirst-quenching power of cucumber, apple, mango, baby spinach, lemon juice, chia seeds and mint. On the other hand, if you’re not feeling all that virtuous, there is always the Quatro de Fromage muffin (oh, the cheesy goodness!), or a classic pastéis de nata…
Kauai at Capegate is perhaps best-known for their health-boosting meals, juices and smoothies, but they still make a mean cup of coffee as well. However, we highly recommend that you supplement your coffee order with one of their incredible breakfasts while you’re at it. Dig into a Choc Protein Smoothie Bowl, Pest Egg Pot, Pesto Mushroom Toast or classic Smashed Avo & Toast, and go carpe that diem!
TOP TIP: Kauai now has a handy app that you can use to place your orders if you like to streamline your day. It lets you schedule your order ahead, pay in the app and have your order ready to skip the queue and collect. All of this while earning cash back, loyalty points and amazing Kauai rewards. What’s not to love?
Xpresso Café at Capegate is a lifesaver for shoppers who like a nice cup of coffee but don’t want to overspend. See, Xpresso Cafe is the first R10 take-away coffee shop franchise in the country, i.e. they sell every item on their menu for only R10 each. This includes everything from a double espresso, cafe mocha, and hazelnut cappuccino, to a chai late, red cappuccino and a mango slushie.
Peacock Tea & Coffee
Peacock Tea & Coffee at Capegate forms part of a proudly South African company that was established in 1966. Over the past 50+ year, the group has become one of the most trusted suppliers of premium teas and coffees throughout the country.
TOP TIP: Peacock Tea & Coffee is the ideal place to stock up on some bulk tea and coffee to take home. The certified organic Inca Gold Organic blend comes highly recommended!
Limnos Bakers at Capegate is one of those stores that cannot be avoided if you wish to be tempted by the world’s most delicious selection of freshly-baked confections. If you are on the prowl for some hot-from-the-oven, iced-to-perfection, expertly crafted cakes, biscuits, macarons and countless other treats that would have the Queen of Hearts herself crumble in submission, Limnos Bakers is most definitely the place to be.
TOP TIP: If you have a sweet tooth, you simply have to try custard tartlet, tiramisu tub or castle slice. In fact, you may want to try them all, so take along a buddy or two so you can do a taste-and-share around the table while you sip your freshly brewed java.
