Great coffee of course, nice little Portuguese custard tarts when available, good barista service and a place for a stop whilst browing the shops.

Very priceworth coffee and good stuff to eat, with a lot of healthy choices as well. The staff seem to be somewhat crazy though..

Best coffee and service! Their three cheese muffin is to die for. Love the fact that you can just grab your coffee on the go or just find a seat.

I have a Vida e Caffe near to where I work, so it is my coffee shop of choice for business meetings as well as the odd social catch up. I love their cupaccinos and especially their Lattes. Their muffins and pastries are also great.

Best way to start every single day. John from Sea Point is the reason I smile and love waking up to the perfect cuppa my little addiction.. Sometimes I think I work in order to afford coffee ☕ 🤗 definitely worth it!!

Stick to local roasts. Vida e is weak in taste, burnt on the noise, and although their franchise staff give great service and are incredibly entheusiastic, their coffee is bland. It's the local version of Starbucks. Whether you're in Cape Town, Johannesburg or Durban, put some effort into getting to know your local roasters, and the amazing varieties on strength,... More
