Coffee

cape town vegan coffee

Now I’m no coffee expert, so I asked my good friend (and famous socialite), Talya Goldberg who runs Vegan Foodie Cape Town, what her top coffee picks were as you can almost always find her being trendy in the latest coffee hot spot in Cape Town. Here are her picks…

  1. Rosetta Roastery, Woodstock
  2. Espresso Lab Micromasters, Woodstock
  3. Tribe Coffee, Woodstock
  4. Skinny Legs Luxury Café, City Bowl
  5. Seattle, Everywhere

So, basically, if you like good coffee, move to Woodstock! Thanks, Talya!

  2. Utopia FoodsMildMature and Herbes de Provence – are UNPARALLELED! I dare you to find a better tasting cashew nut cheese!
