This weekend Rowan took over our Instagram account – we’ll do a blog post all about him – and showed us a sneak peek of a new coffee spot opening in our hood, Flat Mountain coffee roasters. We haven’t been this excited about a new shop opening, since The Creamery announced they were opening in Salt River (1 October is the day) and we were especially happy because since moving from Side Street Studios – where we were right next door to Rosetta, The Field Office & Superette – there have been no great places to grab a cuppa coffee within walking distance of our new studio space in Buchanan Square. To make things even better Flat Mountain is literally across the road from us in Sir Lowry Road so we’ll be popping in regularly.
Yesterday was their first day of business and we grabbed a cappuccino, espresso and bottle of JuiceBox cloudy apple juice. The space is bigger than expected, great wooden paneling, mild steel stools & thick rope lights – it’s super clean but not too minimal, there is also a pop of yellow in the form of a comfy couch. For their first week they’re running a special – R10 for all coffees, so go pop in and check it out, you can also pay via SnapScan which we love! They’ll be expanding their menu in the coming weeks with some sandwich offers soon, cos as much as we love The Kitchen, with their latest round of price increases means they’re not nearly as affordable as they used to be..
