As somewhat of a coffee nerd and a coffee shop owner I really appreciate when people take their coffee seriously, which is the case at Origin. They were more than happy to tell us about their different beans and brewing style, and even gave us free samples of their cold brew and slow brew. The latte was amazing! By far... More

This was another recomendation at the friendly people at the Baraka Giftshop. We had great coffee in Cape town but the coffee in this beautiful coffee shop was probably, no correction... DEFINATELY the best! We also had a lovely light lunch here. Situated in a beautiful upmarket design neighbourhood, called De Waterkant. Walk around Loader and De waterkant, Dixon and... More

7 years ago when I last was inCT there were not many coffee shops like there are now. Origin was one of the first good coffee places in this city. They still are fantastic and beats Truth coffee hands down! Good servise and atmosphere and great location in the trendy de waterkant area.

Recommended to us by the owner at Baraka Gifts. We LOVED it! It is in a beautiful historical building in our favourite part of Cape Town, De Waterkant. It is just so full of atmosphere and we loved checking out all the beautiful and trendy Cape Townians :-) The coffee and food was beyond excellend. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

I've been an avid Origin supporter since day 1 in fact how Truth gets number 1 spot I have no idea. However over my past 4 visits, I notice the coffee getting very sour, why ? I have asked the waiter or waitress on each occasion to please not give me sour coffee but for reasons best known to them... More

Pleasurable discovery. Good place for a relaxing coffee. Great selection of coffees to chose from. Best ask the waiter for advice. Did not eat here. Drawbacks were... it was a hot day and there is a lack of ventilation. The cups are standard size, I would have liked to have a bigger cup to select. The coffee to the table... More

I'm an avid coffee drinker, and will always look for good coffee during my travels. and Origin totally hit the spot! I was really glad they have soy milk as well. Their breakfast/brunch menu is pretty good too.
