Cape Town and its surrounds are full of eateries, pop-up restaurants, coffee shops and bars. When looking for a night out on the town it is often difficult to choose where you want to go, there is just too many talented creatives out there busy making a good cup of coffee. However, we at Inrichmint Media like to keep our finger on the pulse of what’s new and upcoming. Here are just some of the new places to visit in Cape Town and surrounds.
Kamili – Situated in the old Purple Turtle building this up and coming coffee joint knows how to make an excellent cup of coffee. The beans are stored green and roasted fresh on site before being ground, ensuring only the freshest cup of coffee. The space is small and unassuming with an industrial charm. A large chalk board holds the coffee menu as well as the different varieties of beans that can be purchased on site. Owner Theo is very hands on, ensuring that only the best is served to his customers. This is the perfect Long Street spot to get your next coffee fix.
Jason Bakery – This may not be an extremely new eatery but wow is it good. Jason Bakery is fast gaining the locals support with people waking up in the early hours of the morning to be the first to get the freshly prepared ‘doussants’. With tables quickly filling up, make sure to get to Jason before 9 o clock to ensure that you grab yourself a table and a much deserved breakfast treat, and yes they do sell Nutella mini doughnuts.
Ou Meul Bakkery – Having just opened up a branch in Willowbridge in the Northern Suburbs, Ou Meul is breaking the mould by becoming the first and only artisan coffee shop in the Durbanville region. Using only Bootlegger coffee, Ou Meul is the perfect place to catch a good cup of coffee and a yummy wholesome breakfast (and maybe a little dessert).
The Bacon Pop-Up Bar – Vegetarians stop reading now, there is a lot of bacon ahead. Having popped up in Franschhoek recently, the Bacon Pop-Up Bar is home to some of the finest artisan pork this side of the ‘boerewors curtain’. All the pork is carefully sourced, cured wonderfully and smoked to perfection. All the pork is sourced from happy pigs and the building is a wonderful shade of pink, if that matters to you.
So when next you feel like a doussant, a good cup of coffee and some yummy pork, feel free to come to Cape Town.
