Taste a trendy yet nostalgic Cortado
Entering Tribeca Brooklyn in Design Square, you are greeted with a mix of quirky old school memorabelia from the 60s, 70 and 80s decorating the surfaces of this New York style coffee shop. Built in 1998, this coffee shop has a nostalgic feel and is a working hub for Ishan Natalie, current South African Barista Champion. Taste the well-balanced Cortado, an espresso cut with rich, creamy warm milk, made with their own organic coffee, roasted by their own speciality coffee roaster.
Enjoy quality Butterscotch Latte while shopping
If you heading to Food Lovers Market Menlyn to grocery shop, take time out between loading your trolley and grab a Butterscotch Latte at Seattle Coffee Company. The butterscotch sauce in this latte is hand-made with fresh cream, butter and sugar creating a carmelised sweet and smooth taste. Their baristas create this espresso blend combining beans from major coffee growing regions to produce depth of flavour. This team prioritise quality at every level, working closely with farmers to maximise crop quality.
Cappuccino for the community
On the corner of Pierneef St and 24th Avenue in Villieria, is Grounded at Echo, a coffee shop where freelancers and artists meet to work or enjoy a good book. Feel at home as you sip on cappuccino made with consistently extracted espresso and velvety textured milk foam. The natural, sweet aromas of this drink made from their own blend of South American coffee beans will delight you. Part of their monthly profits go to Echo Youth Development, a non-profit organisation, supporting youth in need.
