From coffee shops just down the road, like House Of Machines, to Bryni’s trip to Smits Koffiehuis in Amsterdam, and Kristen’s new favourite & delightfully cosy spot, La Causerie des Mondes in Dijon, France – here are the winning photographs & a few of our favourite spots thrown in too!
P.S. this week’s theme is ‘indulgences’ – you can take that as you wish and show us yours..

Strength via caffeine for @bryni who is showing off her cappuccino from Smits Koffiehuis, Amsterdam
This is @elke_dunaiski‘s perfect way to start the work day, so good!
Ok super jealous of this coffee shot by @noorunisaphotography at Paul’s Bakery in Convent Garden, London
Ooh la la @kristenduff shows off her new favourite & delightfully cosy spot specializing in gourmet coffee and loose leaf tea, La Causerie des Mondes in Dijon, France
Some of our favourite coffee spots:
We heart the newish vida e caffe in Bree Street, wrote a blog post about it here.
A lil Flat Mountain Coffee Roasters flat white office break, Nifty blog post about our coolest new neighbours here.
The Kitchen, has the yummiest salad plates and make a rather wicked ice coffee – think condensed milk.. eek! Blog post about them here.
Oh just mildly Sababa-errthang obsessed, do not leave without a brownie! Blog post about their ahmazingness here.
The Field Office in the Woodstock Exchange is a great place to have meetings or grab an espresso whilst admiring the latest Pedersen+Lennard designs.
W Cafe grande cappuccino whilst shopping, or pre-flight, in the words of Rita Ora ‘will never let you down.’
Origin in De Waterkant was one of the first (if not the first) establishment in Cape Town to offer single origin flat whites – not sure what everyone was drinking back then, Wild Bean? Wimpy? Ricoffy? Anyways they’re where you go when you want a great cuppa, also do fresh juices and nom nom breakfasts.
Rosetta, another Woodstock Exchange favourite does an ahmazing cold brew – you’ve gotta try it, trust us!
Tasha’s – when in Joburg (or at the Waterfront), do as the Joburgers do.. Defs favourite salad spot too.
Tribe is another Woodstock native, they’re in the Foundry – for summer they make a really great ice coffee that you’ve gotta taste to believe! Blog post about them over here.
Bootleggers, relatively new kid on the coffee block, and they’re been full pretty much every time we’ve been past. Lovely to finally have a decent coffee place on Sea Point Main Road.
Superette another Woodstock Exchange gem, the biggest of the lot serves up breakfast, lunch and keeps the caffeine flowin’ – see our blog post about them here.
The most iconic of all JHB coffee haunts? You’ve just gotta go to Father to see and be seen, the coffees pretty good too.
