My top 6 favorite coffee spots right now
Ryan and I have become real coffee snobs, there’s nothing better than a great coffee, and let’s be honest- with two busy boys we basically live on caffeine.
We’ve searched high and low for the best coffees in and around Durban- it’s one of my favorite things whilst traveling, we love finding special little coffee shops with not only great coffee, but a good vibe and something nice to snack on. Here I’ve listed our top 5 favorite cofffee spots, they’re mainly our favorite because of the coffee quality and brews… in no specific order.
1. Vida E caffe ; La Lucia mall
while I was still living in Cape Town, I was at Vida almost everyday before my daily run arounds. When I moved to Durban, I found Vida E in La Lucia mall, it’s honeatky the best coffee, and for a coffee to be great, you need a brilliant barrista that knows what he’s doing. Vida’s got this one hand
2. Seattle coffee ; Virginia circle
You smell the coffee when you get out you’re car, I literally plan my grocery shopping at Checkers just so I can pop into @seattlecoffee after. With friendly staff and delicious snacks, a cool vibe in the shop is so inviting. The coffee is perfect!
3. Delish sister; the litchi orchard
Theres nothing I don’t like about this little gem, started by two young sister & their love for great food. Situated at the Litchi orchard, it’s auch a beautiful setting with a great child friendly play area, and amazing coffee and cakes. The coffee tastes as good as it smells.
4. Rox coffee; Umhlanga Rocks promenade
After you’ve done you’re morning run, stop at the @Roxcoffeeshop and grab a fresh coconut water – straight out of the coconut and a coffee ( almond milk or normal) friendly staff, great coffee and a gorgeous view of the ocean.
5. Old town Italy ; behind gateway
you feel like you’re walking around in Italy, the smell of cheese, coffee, deli meats and the most incredible freshly baked breads and pastas- you just can’t go wrong with a breakfast, snack or lunch at Old town Italy! The coffee is once again made by a well trained barissta and it’s certainly one of our favorite hang out spots! And such a nice little shopping space ; buy all you’re fresh meats, cheese, breads and pastas.
6. The science of coffee; The market ballito.
Here you can choose to roast you’re own coffee if you’d like, it’s a stunning little corner cafe where you feel like you could just sit, relax, read a book and enjoy a great “cuppa” . Try their brownies- they are unreal!
