The days of sandy feet and sun kissed faces are almost over, as we slowly change from sundresses to cardigans, and from iced coffees to warm cappuccinos.
All those who live and work in the Green Point area are truly lucky to be so close to the seaside for a promenade walk, and to relax in one of the many beautiful coffee shops Green Point has to offer.
Whether it’s to wake up, recharge, or spend a day in, here’s a guide of our four go-to coffee spots in Green Point.
