You can’t miss this trendy coffee shop, eatery and gallery in Long Street (Langstraat) – look out for the tree trunk wrapped in pink fabric and black boards with inviting messages! With lots of parking, a huge garden at the back, tables at the front and in various rooms, the venue is ideal for cosy gatherings and for groups.

Open early (from 08h00) with daily specials and always something interesting on the menu. The coffee brand is Häzz, and Black Vanilla is banting friendly.

Apart from coffee and eats photographer Pieter Els and his wife Lize also specialize in art, photography, framing and printing. Interesting gifts are sourced and the lovely back garden accommodates outdoor tables and a small nursery.

“Become part of our culture of ‘good coffee … good food … good art … and good friends’ … become a Black Vanilla lover!”

Banters can check the black board for daily options available. Framing done on the premises.

Coffee & eatery – and also an art gallery and gift shop

The huge outdoor area at the back is as pretty as a picture! Perfect for breakfast or lunch in a garden setting when the weather is good.
