It’s been suggested that it was Central Perk – the coffee shop frequented on the series Friends – that kick-started the coffee shop movement. Thanks to the routine caffeine catch-ups of Ross, Chandler and co, meeting for coffee has become a part of most people’s daily routines. From grabbing a takeaway latte before work or talking business over an Americano, to meeting with mates for a mocha – coffee shops or trendy cafes are on everyone’s radar. Here are some of Durban’s top coffee spots for you to try out the next time you’re in the market for a cup of Joe.
This spot may be small, but we all know what they say about dynamite! Love Coffee serves up all the coffee classics as well as a selection of delicious home-made meals and pastries. Plus, vegans can still get their coffee fix thanks to their nut milk options.
Savior Coffee Co
You’ll find Savior Brand coffee being served up on Station Drive, fuelling the buzz of this trending area. The best thing about this spot? You’ll often be surprised with the creative latte art.
The Bean Green Coffee Company
Bean Green proudly roasts its own beans and serves up a unique brand of coffee. The Bluff Bru is unarguably their most famous roast and if you find yourself experiencing love at first sip, you can always buy a bag of beans to take home with you.
Cute and quaint but big on coffee, Coffee Tree is the perfect spot to get your coffee fix. They also serve up breakfast, brunch and gluten-free goodies – what’s not to love?
