Best of Cape Town 2012: Best Coffee [Top 10]
Posted by on Apr 20th, 2012

Yep..as expected the best coffee poll was just as hotly contested as the two previous crowd sourced polls ( best sushi and best burger) to determine the Best of Cape Town 2012.

As before i asked locals to nominate their choice via social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook as well in the comment section of Life is Savage and after counting the votes it turned out that there was a tie for the top spot. Did a quick tie breaker poll and it was clear that the majority of Cape Town’s locals think the best coffee in the city is found at Espresso lab.

Here’s the Top 10 people’s choice list for

Best Coffee in Cape Town 2012

  1. Espresso Lab: Old Biscuit Mill, Woodstock, 021 4470845
  2. Origin Coffee: 28 Hudson Street, De Waterkant, 021 421 1000
  3. Vida e caffe:  all over Cape Town, 021 461 0424
  4. Haas Coffee Collective: 67 rose street, Bo-Kaap, 021 422 4413
  5. Giovanni’s Deliworld : 103 Main Road, Greenpoint, 021 434 6893

Nicely done to the folks at Espresso Lab. When you go the Old Biscuit Mill this Saturday make sure you go grap a cup of the good stuff from them.

Not a very surprising list, but i’ve never tasted coffee from Haas, Dear Me Food World or Peacock. Will definitely be doing so soon though. Other places mentioned that didn’t make the list were Detour, Myatt Cafe, Newport Deli, Capello, Starling Cafe, Milk Bread and Honey and Knead.

Do you agree with the Top 10 list? Feel free to leave some comments on which ones you prefer.

Good times.
