Unexpected is the first thought that comes to mind when walking through their glass doors. You realise immediately that this is not your average show room. In a stylish, exhilarating BMW store, trendy Capetonians gather with MacBooks and Kindles to enjoy a revitalising cup of Tribe Coffee, paired with one of the delicious wholesome meals on offer.
BMW Dunford and Tribe Coffee decided to fire up their engines and collaborate, by creating a space both coffee fanatics and motorbike enthusiasts can enjoy. The new concept store is creating a buzz on the Cape Town scene, offering something nobody else has done successfully yet. Quite a few mega stores in Cape Town offer in-house cafes or coffee machines, but none truly meet the standards of this store.
Motorbike shopping was definitely not first on my agenda when I walked in. However once seated and enjoying my meal, I came to realise the store is much like the galleries based on trendy Bree and Kloof Streets. Vintage motorcycles scattered inside the café itself, hanging plants and rustic furniture made from wood, leather and metal, are what made this space perfect for creativity.
The setting and the enticing menu designed by Maureen Muller lure employees out of their offices every day for a much needed lunch break. We made sure to try out a variety of dishes, and everything was just as visually appealing as it was tasty. I ordered chicken and hummus, which comes paired with a side salad and pita bread. It was perfectly spiced and incredibly good value at R70 – in fact a takeaway of leftovers for dinner was completely necessary. Others at the table tried the Tribe Burger topped with balsamic caramelised onions and grilled cheese and the Cape to Rio fish cakes – which both received high praise too.
Satisfied and ready to take on the rest of the working day, I left feeling that Tribe 112 is definitely a necessary week day treat for a group of friends or colleagues.
