Starting our virtual road trip in Muizenberg we head into;
Knead – Muizenberg
Knead Muizenberg is energetic with surfers, runners, swimmers and families out and about.
Watch the surf as you enjoy a flavorsome coffee. The hustle and bustle of Surfers’ corner can take you away from the common feeling of doom and gloom lately. It’s the perfect spot to just sit, enjoy your coffee while watching the ocean.

Continuing along the scenic route to Kalk Bay, a famous quaint town with so many options to grab a cup of coffee, it was a tough one to decide where to stop-off, but our coffee lovers set their hearts on Salt.
Salt – Kalk Bay
Salt is in the heart of Kalk Bay, overlooking the harbour and vibrant coloured boats. The coffee shop itself, makes you feel like you have walked back in time, its quirky feel and views of Kalk Bay is why it makes a great place to grab a coffee and just unwind… oh, did we mention their coffees are delicious.

The next stop is the friendly Glencairn, but don’t drive too fast, or you’ll miss the diminutive town.
Blended Health Cafe – Glencairn
A favourite amongst the locals, Blended offers tasty coffee with a beautiful ocean view at the Eat Surf Yoga lifestyle center. It is all about sustainability and working to co-exist with nature here. You can feel the natural beachy vibes when you visit the shop, it feels as though it’s just you on a beautiful Island with no worries in life. This is the ultimate chill spot and is my personal favourite.
