With glass windows and an inviting ambience, customers stream through the doors of this new juice bar and coffee shop on the ever evolving Kloof Street.
They opened with a coffee brewing and juice making bang, with a launch party on 20 October 2014, that had crowds flooding into the streets with wine glasses in hand. Having built a network for themselves while managing Yours Truly, owners Cian van der Vyver and Robbi Gordick became fast friends. During their time managing a coffee shop together, the duo came to realise that they shared a common passion for bringing people together, listening to good music and sharing all of this over a cup of good coffee.
As I stepped through the doors of this cafe, it reminded me of a quirky jewellery box, with artwork from local designers hanging on the wall, gold lamps hanging over head and seating that looked like something from Alice in Wonderland. When I asked the owners who had designed their store, they informed me that most of the products were from Church Original Products. After browsing the chalk board for today’s specials, I couldn’t make up my mind as to what I should choose, a fresh carrot juice or a coffee. The safe choice of course was a cappuccino, and obviously one of the selling points of the shop. It was one of the best coffees I have had on Kloof Street. After having the first sip I immediately asked where they got their beans from, and obviously it was from Deluxe coffee down the road. To satisfy my sweet tooth, I opted for something to go and got a piece of bar-one fudge (at R6 I would definitely be coming back for more).
While waiting for my cappuccino I glanced around the hipster joint, while designers and other freelancers worked on their MacBooks, munching on croissants and sipping on lattes. Chatting to a friend in the shop, I heard that Saturdays are a must for breakfast, with a delicious bacon and egg roll being served up.
Make a morning mission out of it, with your iPhone and MacBook in toe, to browse the Internet using their free Wi-Fi and enjoy a good cup of coffee or freshly squeezed juice.
